The Well Child / Tamariki Ora Quality Indicators publication identifies variable clinical practice, service quality and health outcomes across Well Child Tamariki Ora and related child health services.
The Ministry of Health, in partnership with sector experts, developed the Well Child / Tamariki Ora Quality Improvement Framework, drawing on New Zealand and international research.
The Framework has three aims: focusing on family/whānau experience; population health and best value for the health system; and setting quality indicators to audit health system performance.
This is the third Well Child / Tamariki Ora quality indicators publication, and show areas of excellence and areas for improvement. The quality indicators help support the Ministry of Health, DHBs and providers of Well Child / Tamariki Ora and related child health services to identify and prioritise areas for national and local quality improvement.
