MOA is an online Quality Improvement Platform that is used by a large number of aged care facilities in Australia. The platform allows aged care providers (they call them partners) to self-assess and benchmarks their current performance against the standards, their past performance, and that of other providers using this platform. The self-assessment highlights risk and improvement opportunities that can be tracked and monitored in this digital platform for continuous improvement.
Care-Metric is proud to be the new agent for MOA in New Zealand. It has aligned its tools with the New Zealand Health and Disability Service Standards and so it becomes a useful tool to actively monitor the integrated quality of care and prepare facilities well for any (spot) audit coming to your way.
So why is Care-Metric so positive about becoming the New Zealand agent for the MOA Quality Improvement Platform?
• Care-Metric has a strong belief that the learning organisations<sup>(1)</sup> will be the most successful organisations in the future. Self-assessment and reflection are critical components in becoming a learning organisation. It will benefit the residents and staff working in these facilities. The MOA platform has this all.
