QUALITY PRACTICE NETWORK

QUALITY HEALTH CARE STILL MATTERS

AOGP has developed a national Quality Practice Network to support and promote the delivery of high-quality general practice through the use of:

  • confidential benchmarking
  • local and national networking
  • cooperative buying power
  • wide-ranging CPD activities

AOGP provides practices with the tools to deliver best-quality healthcare, and the mechanisms to measure it.

Database and analysis

AOGP is working with a third party to create and deliver a benchmarking dashboard that will provide instant and effective benchmarking data. We plan to offer a trial period to the QPN for free. Eventually, once the software is officially released, its use will be on a user-pay basis.

 

Professional standards

Accreditation

As a member of AOGP’s Quality Practice Network, you will be able to access support to achieve accreditation requirements and quality improvement tools that go beyond accreditation standards. Whether you are using the 4th or 5th edition standards we can assist through access to benchmarking data to measure and respond to areas identified for improvement. We also can provide frameworks for clinical audit, CPD and a range of other tools and policies that will make your journey through accreditation easier and more valuable.
