How are health targets reported?

District health boards (DHBs) report their progress to the Ministry of Health four times a year, as at 30 September, 31 December, 31 March and 30 June. In turn, the Ministry reports their findings to the Minister and the public.

Reports are reviewed to determine current performance trends, gaps that may be emerging and factors related to success.

Public reporting for 2017/18

The Government has directed the Ministry of Health to develop a new set of performance measures to improve health outcomes for New Zealanders.

While work is underway to develop these new measures DHBs will continue to report to the Ministry against the current set of health targets, as well as against a previously established suite of wider measures. 

During this time we will only provide the raw data. We will not develop separate reports or infographics or advertise this information in newspapers. See How is my DHB performing? for the latest data.
