Healthcare that counts specifies action areas to guide health services and health professionals to identify and respond early to support vulnerable children and protect them from harm. The action areas provide key performance and quality indicators for health services that complement existing safety and quality requirements applicable to health services and community service organisations. The action areas can also be used to align with any existing quality improvement and accreditation processes operating within each health service.

Examples of best practice case studies and resources are used throughout the framework and a self-assessment tool is available online to guide implementation. Healthcare that counts is supported by the Department of Health and Human Services’ Children at risk website and the Children at risk learning portal for health professionals.
