Health Quality Measures New Zealand

The sector-wide library of NZ health measures

Health Quality Measures New Zealand is a sector-wide library of measures used within the New Zealand Health System. It is a single collection point for all measures and their definitions and provides a platform to allow the collaboration on those measures.


With the support from the Health Quality and Safety Commission and National Health IT Board, Patients First has developed a new community and work space to encourage collaboration around the sharing, development and evolution of health measures. Measures are used to improve the quality of patient care and generate evidence to help inform improved outcomes.
