Quarterly Review Of HHS Performance To Sept. 2000

Media advisory

Quarterly Review of Comparative Hospital and Health Service Performance to 30 September 2000

THE Ministry of Health has published the Quarterly Review of Comparative Hospital and Health Service Performance for the three months to 30 September 2000.

The report says surveys of both inpatients and outpatients treated by Hospital and Health Services (HHSs) confirm the pattern of good results. It also says there has also been a further reduction in the rate of hospital-acquired blood stream infections. The report says the majority of HHSs are breaking even or better, with all but two HHSs covering all of their operating costs, including the cost of interest, for the twelve months ended 30 September 2000. However, 11 HHSs did not cover the full cost of capital, including the capital charge.

The report is available on the Ministry of Health website: LINK TO FULL REPORT

The key findings of the report refer to pages in the appended Comparative Performance Tables. Each sub-heading of the report includes a reference to the appropriate page. The commentary emphasises the longer-term trends at a sector level, in order to place the individual HHSs' results for the past four quarters in a broader context.
