Health Quality & Safety Commission (HQSC)
Review, facilitation, strategic advice

Synergia was commissioned to provide advice for a sustainable approach to bring the Severe Acute Maternal Morbidity (SAMM) audit into the HQSC (the Commission). We provided support to the Commission’s expert advisory group following their New Zealand Triple Aim model and the emphasis on continuous quality improvement. The group was to provide guidance on a sustainable review and improvement model for SAMM, the link between the Commission and the maternity quality programme based at the Ministry of Health, the link between an expanding maternal morbidity audit work stream, and the work of the Perinatal and Maternal Mortality Review Committee.
