The Victorian Agency for Health Information (VAHI) is a division of the Department of Health, dedicated to delivering trusted information to inform better decisions that improve the health and wellbeing of Victorians.
VAHI contributes to the Department’s ambitious system reform agenda in many ways:
- Analysing and sharing information across the Victorian health system to ensure services have an accurate picture of their quality and safety.
- Monitoring and reporting on public and private services that impact on health, wellbeing, quality and safety to stimulate and inform improvements, increase transparency and accountability, and inform the community.
- Collecting and analysing information about the health status of Victorians to inform policy development and planning, and to give a complete picture of health in Victoria.
About this website
This website provides the Victorian community with information about the quality and safety performance of Victorian public health services.
Victorian health services can also use this website to access detailed and interactive quality and safety performance data about their own health service, and how it compares to other health services and statewide benchmarks. Authenticated users can also explore trends, examine patient-level data and download PDFs of selected routine health service reports.

What we do
VAHI was created in 2017 as part of Victorian Government reforms to overhaul quality and safety across Victoria’s healthcare system. In February 2021, VAHI was integrated into the Victorian Department of Health.
The CEO has established committees to provide VAHI with expert strategic and operational advice. These committees enhance our stakeholder engagement approaches, and help align our activities to broader Victorian health system priorities.
Our monthly newsletter keeps you up to date with information on VAHI reporting, current and upcoming projects, and other issues related to health and human services data and information. It also includes interviews with thought leaders working across healthcare quality and safety.
