The Child and Adolescent Health Service (CAHS) measures, monitors and compares our performance across all levels of the organisation from one month to the next, one year to the next and against other organisations that deliver the same type of care. This information is captured in performance measurements which are conducted and reported to the health service executive and within WA to demonstrate that CAHS is doing everything possible to improve services to the public.
CAHS measures its performance and benchmarks against peer hospitals to identify opportunities to improve services. Measuring performance promotes the development of a culture of continuous quality improvement so that every patient or client receives the best care possible every time they come into contact with the service.
Outside of our local measures, there are other agencies that measure and report on performance:
