The Department of Health and Aged Care launched the Quality Indicator (QI) Program on 1 July 2019. At that time, all residential aged care providers were to report on 3 mandatory quality indicators. These related to:
- pressure injuries
- physical restraint
- unplanned weight loss
The program was updated and expanded on 1 July 2021 to include:
- medication management
- falls and major injury
On 1 April 2023 there had been a further expansion of the QI Program to add an additional 6 quality indicators.
- activities of daily living
- incontinence care
- consumer experience
- quality of life
As of 3 July 2023, residential aged care providers must report quality indicator data via a new Quality Indicators App in the Government Provider Management System (GPMS) every three months.
The Department of Health and Aged Care are currently developing the quality indicators for in-home aged care which will consist of:
- up to 5 quality indicators for in-home aged care
- consumer experience and quality of life measures for in-home aged care.
