Providers who use the Quality Portal save up to 80% of the time they spent on quality improvement and compliance reporting.

Self-assessments for all of the main sets of community services and health standards are available in the Quality Portal, including the NDIS Practice Standards, National Standards for Disability Services, National Standards for Mental Health Services and the Aged Care Quality Standards.
