Quality and safety markers – enabling equity monitoring: Privacy impact assessment report

19 Nov 2021

Equity monitoring means analysing whether our quality and safety marker results differ between groups of people, defined at this stage by age, gender and ethnicity. To do this, we have needed to change from using aggregated information to using personal-level (but de-identified) health information.

This privacy impact assessment covers the provision of demographic information alongside health information from health care providers to the Commission. This information is required for the Commission to undertake its legislative objective and functions of monitoring the equity, quality and safety of health care.
