State and National Reports

PCOC Reports

PCOC produces national and state reports every six months that include patient outcome results, demographic details of the patients receiving palliative care, information related to the clinical tools and some episode related information. Services can use these reports to improve the quality of the palliative care they provide through the analysis and benchmarking of patient outcomes.
