The Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care (the Commission) aims to provide a health system that is informed, supported and organised to deliver safe and high-quality health care that contributes to:
- better experiences for patients and consumers
- better health outcomes for the population
- improved productivity
- greater sustainability
The Commission develops and supports national safety and clinical standards; formulates and implements national accreditation schemes; and develops national health-related data sets. The Commission is also working to reduce unwarranted variations in practice and outcomes for individuals and populations, and undertaking nationally coordinated action to address healthcare associated infections and antimicrobial resistance.
