Taking performance indicators to the next level
The Cancer Care Data Explorer is an interactive tool for exploring the quality of care and outcomes for people diagnosed with cancer in New Zealand. It provides baseline data for ongoing quality improvement.
Improving quality of care
Te Aho o Te Kahu’s quality performance indicator programme measures and compares the services received by people with cancer with the goal of identifying areas for improvement. To help communicate the outputs from the monitoring programme, we worked with the agency’s technical experts to develop the Cancer Care Data Explorer. The interactive tool helps stakeholders explore quality of care and outcomes for people diagnosed with cancer nationally and in different regions of the country.
The Cancer Care Data Explorer uses specialised data visualisations to share how certain indicators are preforming across the country. For example, colour coded tables and spine charts are used to display how specific District Health Boards (DHBs) are performing against the national average.
