The second quarter (Oct-Dec) of the revised National Aged Care Mandatory Quality Indicator Program (NACMQIP) is soon reaching a close. The program continues to collect data for five quality indicators and measures significant parts of quality of care that can affect resident health and wellbeing. The NACMQIP also aims to assist providers to measure, monitor, compare and improve the quality of their services as well as empower older Australians with greater information about the quality of aged care services when making decisions about their care.
MOA continues to offer the same level of support as previous NACMQIP submissions which includes:
- Timely reminders throughout the submission month
- Proactive data quality checks
- Benchmarked submission reports for each home
- Educational webinars and instant support
- Automatic transmission to the My Aged Care portal
To further assist with preparedness, a timeline of key dates has also been prepared in the lead up to the submission deadline on 18 January.
Whilst most services have been able to finalise their data early, we realise this may not be possible for everyone. For any service that is unable to meet the 18 January deadline, MOA will run conduct another upload to My Aged Care on the following day. Please note that MOA will not be able to submit your organisation’s data if you are unable to meet these deadlines.
Please contact us if you would like to discuss the benefits of partnering with MOA for NACMQIP support and your options.
