  • The Issue

    Consultation period: 22/07/2020 5:00 pm to 04/09/2020 5:00 pm

    Purpose

    The purpose of this consultation paper is to seek feedback on the health outcomes and reporting framework for the NSW workers compensation (WC) and compulsory third party (CTP) schemes (personal injury schemes).

    What is the framework?

    The proposed framework includes:

    • a vision for the delivery of healthcare within the WC and CTP schemes: “the workers compensation and CTP schemes regulated by SIRA deliver value-based care to injured persons covered by the schemes”.
    • how the achievement of the vision will be defined and measured.

    The health outcomes framework will improve our understanding of the health outcomes claimants experience in the personal injury schemes we regulate. Better data on injured people’s health status and outcomes is essential to enabling SIRA and scheme participants to determine how the schemes are going in delivering value-based healthcare.
