What we do

Using data for improvement

Using data for improvement

To ensure that healthcare services are designed around evidence-based insights, we understand that the use of data in isolation is not enough. It needs to be the right data interpreted in the right way, and progress must be measured against appropriate standards and guidance to achieve meaningful change.
