This reporting system provides access to a range of continuous quality improvement (CQI) functions which can be used by participating Health Services for local CQI activities or projects organised by other organisations, where supported by OCHREStreams.
  3. The OCHREStreams system utilises the same Data Warehouse (QI Portal) as the Improvement Foundation’s other quality improvement programs, including qiConnect. As such, data can be accessed via qiConnect should an OCHREStreams registered organisation choose to access it.
