Elective Services Patient Flow Indicators (ESPIs) are a suite of performance measures that provide information on how well DHBs are managing key steps in the Electives patient journey.
This includes how well DHBs are managing waiting times for patients, and whether they are following processes that support good patient communication and prioritisation. This report provides a summary view of the results for each of the ESPIs for each DHB. It also shows DHB ESPI performance by surgical specialty.
To view the results for an individual DHB, select a report from the downloads below.
Update: 5 December, 2019
Please note that due to issues associated with extracting data following Patient Administration System (PAS) upgrades, the ESPI results for Canterbury, MidCentral and Nelson Marlborough DHBs are not reflective of actual patient numbers.
DHBs and the Ministry of Health are working to resolve these issues and future publications should accurately reflect the correct number of patients.
Recent DHB performance has been impacted by an unprecedented level of industrial action by various workforce groups. There are also workforce and physical capacity constraints that DHBs are working hard to address.
Access to Planned Care is measured by the number of Planned Care Interventions provided, regardless of setting, (ie inpatient, outpatient or community) and provision of alternative models of care. Read more about Planned Care Interventions.
