Standards and Performance Pathways (SPP)
A compliance management and quality improvement support platform
Compliance management can be daunting – understanding all of the detailed requirements your organisation must meet, then regularly monitoring your compliance, can be a time-consuming and difficult process. This is why we created SPP!
The SPP platform goes the extra mile to guide Australian community and health service providers with standards compliance management, reporting, business risk management and quality improvement.
Hosting hundreds of resources, best practice policy templates, pro formas, evidence guides and interactive self-assessments – SPP sets the standard for compliance management.
Cross-mapped standards and performance measurement tools that save up to 80% of time usually spent
SPP's educative self-assessments guide you through what’s required to meet the specific standards that apply to your organisation. From aged care quality standards, to the NDIS practice standards, SPP hosts all of Australia’s service standards in one easy-to-access digital space.
All of the standards in SPP are cross-mapped – meaning you can simply log in, follow our questions and see how your business aligns with compliance. Our platform automatically identifies similarities and gaps between each standard.
SPP is designed to simplify the compliance process, so your organisation can spend more time on what’s important
