Making Better Decisions in General Practice

building capacity and capability to translate integrated data sets into powerful evidence to help you reduce workload and improve care


Article in Healthcare Leader, January 2018




Key Points:

  • Good evidence is the currency for informed debate and effective decision-making.
  • Data is owned by the practices and used to improve performance by them – if it is used as a stick it is doomed to fail
  • The data can also be used at the CCG and STP level to provide a picture of pressure and activity in primary care
