The National Health Performance Authority is an independent agency that monitors and reports on the performance of local health care organisations including Local Hospital Networks, public and private hospitals, and primary health care organisations such as Medicare Locals and other organisations that provide health care services to the community.

We provide nationally consistent, locally relevant and comparable information about Australia’s health system to inform consumers, stimulate and inform improvements and increase transparency and accountability.

The Authority was established under the National Health Reform Act 2011 and is a prescribed agency under the Financial Management and Accountability Act 1997.

The Performance Authority works in close collaboration with the other agencies set up by the Act to ensure that pricing, quality and performance measures for public hospitals are complementary. These other agencies include the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority, which determines the national efficient price for health care services in public hospitals, and the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Health Care, which promotes initiatives relating to health care quality and safety issues, formulates guidelines and indicators on safety and quality issues and carries out other related functions.

To meet our statutory obligations to report on the performance of Australia’s health system, the Authority operates independently of the federal, state and territory governments.
