Data driven leadership of quality improvement in health care—assumptions, rules and facts

Clinicians, leaders, researchers, patients and policy makers use data to improve care. Measurement can provide a powerful means of learning through improvement initiatives, both within the initial setting and subsequently for spreading improvement across wider healthcare systems. However, when done badly measurement can be wasteful, or even harmful. Healthcare is inundated with data that are not or cannot be used for quality improvement, and many quality improvement initiatives are not equipped with the resource and skills needed to use data well for improvement.

In this seminar, we explore recommendations for selecting, presenting and interpreting quality data and we seek to highlight how leaders use the data in strategic and operational decisions.
