Why Collect Data Using a Uniform Framework
Benchmarking is necessary. Health care organizations need to know where they stand to see where they are going. For example, are quality improvement interventions making a difference? Should our organization be doing things differently?
Collecting accurate data helps your organization track progress over time. In addition, it allows for comparisons within organizations, across organizations, as well as at a national level. Most national level data are obtained from health care organizations. If the data your organization collects are accurate, it contributes to accurate comparisons and reporting at all levels.
