Outcome Based Management

The Outcome Based Management (OBM) Framework is the performance management framework for State Government agencies. The OBM Framework allows the State Government to measure the success of funded services to deliver desired outcomes.

To ensure the integrity of the OBM Framework across the WA health system the OBM Policy Framework and the OBM Policy have been established in accordance with the Health Services Act 2016. Health Service Providers are required to report all OBM KPI data in accordance with the OBM KPI data definitions. The OBM KPI Data Definitions 2017-18 Manual is under development. The Office of the Auditor General required changes resulting from the 2016-17 annual audit process will be incorporated into the manual prior to release.  The 2016-17 annual audit process is anticipated to be completed by October 2017.
