Background:

Menzies operated One21seventy as a non-profit entity from 2010 to 2016 to provide evidence-based practical tools and processes to help primary health care providers with continuous quality improvement (CQI). 

One21seventy aimed to increase the life expectancy for Indigenous people beyond one in infancy, beyond 21 in children and young adults and beyond seventy in older adults through a focus on CQI.

CQI can improve health outcomes by assisting health services to improve their health delivery systems to provide best practice care. Until October 2016, One21seventy supported the use of CQI in Indigenous primary health care through a range of CQI related tools, and a web-based reporting system, and through training and clinical audit support for services. An action-based approach was used in working with health care staff to identify strengths and weaknesses in their systems, set goals for improvement, develop strategies to achieve these goals, and assess the effectiveness of these strategies in improving care for chronic conditions.

You may access One21seventy clinical audit tools and other tools, e-learning modules and resources from this site.

Access to customised One21seventy training, support for the clinical audit and other tools, and comparisons with pooled data from other health centres ceased with the closure of One21seventy on 1 October 2016. Thank you to the services and partners who have been involved in CQI through One21seventy.
