St Vincent’s Health Australia achieves big reduction in hospital-acquired complications

St Vincent’s Health Australia (SVHA) has reduced the number of hospital-acquired complications (HACs) across its private health network by 16 per cent in one year and achieved another 13 per cent this year with the assistance of Pacific Knowledge System’s (PKS) RISQ portal.

The move to reduce the number of HACs in Australian hospitals has been driven by the Australian Commission on Safety and Quality in Healthcare (ACSQHC), which in 2019 published a list of 16 nationally agreed HACs to be targeted, in partnership with the Independent Hospital Pricing Authority (IHPA).
