21 June 2013
The NRHA prepared a discussion paper for its Council on the latest report from the COAG Reform Council, "Healthcare 2011-12: comparing performance across Australia" released on 24 May 2013. The report to the Council of Australian Governments (COAG) monitors progress against the performance indicators set in the National Healthcare Agreement for health status of Australians; healthy habits and behaviours; health systems at work; and progress against peformance benchmarks and national partnerships. The combined effects of location (or remoteness) and disadvantage on health risk factors are considered for the first time.
