The Department of Health has released the 5th annual report of the National Healthcare Quality Reporting System (NHQRS) on the quality of Irish healthcare. The NHQRS aims to provide a mechanism through which data about the quality of Ireland’s healthcare structures, processes and outcomes can be made publicly available. The reporting of performance and outcome indicators is designed to enable policy makers and service providers to improve the quality of health service provision and allow for comparisons between regions, nationally, internationally and over time. This year’s report includes 38 indicators of performance across five key domains.
