The CEO of the Depart­ment for Health and Well­be­ing, Chris McGowan, approved the estab­lish­ment of a Statewide Patient-Report­ed Mea­sures Pro­gram, which The CEIH will lead over the next three years. 

The Min­is­ter for Health and Well­be­ing, the Hon. Stephen Wade made a press release in April 2021 pub­licly endors­ing the program. 

The new pro­gram will sup­port the rou­tine col­lec­tion, mea­sure­ment and time­ly report­ing of patient-report­ed out­come and expe­ri­ence mea­sures across our sys­tems and direct­ly to clin­i­cians so that they are able to pro­vide the best care to patients. 

Fol­low­ing strong col­lab­o­ra­tion between con­sumer and clin­i­cian rep­re­sen­ta­tives to devel­op the busi­ness case, the project is now mov­ing onto the plan­ning stage where the pro­gram will be co-designed with con­sumers and clin­i­cians ensur­ing it is tru­ly a patient-cen­tred and inte­grat­ed system.

It is expect­ed that the pro­gram will be ful­ly imple­ment­ed across South Aus­tralia by the end of the 2023 – 24 finan­cial year.
