The sixth edition is the final release of Health Performance Council's Transforming Health (2015-2017) indicator reports. It is an update of the previous five reports focused on hospital admission indicators with the inclusion of patient/consumer experience and staff engagement measures. The council chose indicators to monitor how well SA Health's implementation of their Transforming Health change program addressed its stated objectives to improve equity and access in metropolitan Adelaide public hospitals and align models of health care delivery with new and upgraded hospital facilities.
Health Performance Council focused on whether Transforming Health may have resulted in a change of health outcome gaps between specific population groups: Aboriginal people, culturally and linguistically diverse communities, lower socio-economic areas, aged persons and country residents. Health Performance Council published indicators by local health network where data allowed.
