2016/17 interRAI Annual Report

interRAI is a suite of comprehensive clinical assessment tools. The suite of instruments is built on a core set of assessment items that are considered important in all care settings.

All district health boards (DHBs) have been using interRAI for assessing older people’s needs for home and community support services since 2012, and since July 2015 in aged residential care.

Each tool in the interRAI suite is developed for a specific population. The tools are standardised assessments designed to work together to form an integrated health information system, the primary purpose being to improve care planning for each individual.

Data from each assessment may be aggregated to provide information at facility, regional and national level.

Achievements in 2016/17

The 2016/17 Annual Report gives an overview of assessments completed in the year and the achievements of interRAI New Zealand.

Focus on dementia

Our special focus was on people with dementia who are living at home. The report shows information about this population group gained from interRAI assessments, for example, demographics, wellbeing and clinical data about the person as well as their carer.

The 2015/16 National interRAI Data Analysis Annual Report provides a high level overview of interRAI assessments in New Zealand from a national perspective and provides useful insight into the health and general wellbeing of people across care settings in our communities.

This was the second report in a series of annual reports from interRAI assessments since interRAI became the primary assessment tool for aged residential care in July 2015.

In 2015/16, interRAI assessments represented about ten percent of the New Zealand population aged 65 and over.


2014/15 National interRAI Data Analysis Annual Report

The 2014/15 National interRAI Data Analysis Annual Report was the first major publication of the interRAI National Data Analysis and Reporting Centre since its establishment in July 2015.

For the first time it was possible, for a large variety of stakeholders in the aged care sector, to freely and publicly access interRAI data and information at an aggregated level from a national perspective.
