The Health Star Rating (HSR) Advisory Committee (HSRAC) is overseeing the voluntary implementation of the HSR system. The HSRAC has held a number of stakeholder workshops since 2014.
The initial purpose of the workshops was to disseminate information about the HSR system, provide an update on current work underway and obtain feedback from stakeholders about their experiences or issues with the HSR system.
The stakeholder workshops held in 2016 have been facilitated and focussed on discussions on a range of key issues. The aim of the workshops was to understand how the HSR is operating, the strengths of the system, the challenges to implementing the system and the opportunities for improvement to the system.
