Health Indicators from Other Countries


National health performance indicators

The national health performance framework, developed by the Australian Institute of Health and Wellness, was first developed in 2001 and revised in 2009. The main purpose of the framework is to provide a structure for reporting on the performance of the Australian health system at the national level. It can also be used as a guiding structure when developing sets of performance indicators for more discrete components of the health system, such as a particular program, or a specific target group.

Leading health indicators for healthy people 2020

For the past three decades, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) has issued a national agenda aimed at improving the health of all Americans over each 10-year span. Under each of these Healthy People initiatives, HHS established health targets and monitored how well people were reaching them over time. HHS asked the Institute of Medicine to review the objectives and recommend leading health indicators that could help sharpen the focus of the agenda. Healthy People 2020 lays out the proposed agenda for the current decade, which will end in 2020.
