National HoNOS reports

Te Pou publishes national HoNOS reports every three months. These reports summarise all of the outcomes data provided by Te Whatu Ora districts and a few NGOs through Programme for the Integration of Mental Health Data (PRIMHD) reports. The reports provide an overall picture of data quality, what has changed for people using services, and how services perform. In particular, the reports present Health of the National Outcomes Scale (HoNOS) data from services where HoNOS is the primary measure.

Each summary report includes three sections:

  • 1. Outcomes-related information

    This provides indications about what changes have occurred for service users between entering and leaving the service. Outcomes are assessed by comparing the group admitted and the group discharged from the service in the same time period. This should provide a reasonable indication of outcomes achieved unless the service user mix has changed significantly over the usual period for which service is delivered.

  • 2. Service-related information

    This provides information about the services, such as the overall severity of service users who use different services.

  • 3. Collection completion and validity

    This details the completeness of the data set provided by your Mental Health Services. This is important because it indicates how valid and reliable the data sets are likely to be. The less complete the data set, the less valid the information is likely to be.

National summary reports

National summary reports are provided for:

  • HoNOS (used with adults from 18 to 64 years of age)
  • HoNOSCA (used with children up to the age of 17 years)
  • HoNOS65+ (used with adults 65 years and older).

A guide to the team type classification and a user guide for each measure's summary report is available to help you interpret and use the reports.
