Data collection and curation
Through central collection, curation and linkage of around 200 national data collections, we maintain a critical national asset for enabling better decision-making for direct care; commissioning, monitoring, evaluation and improvement of health services; policy-making; and research. We also support delivery of social care.
Our data sets and data collections are a systematic gathering of data or information from existing records held within health and care systems. Both are usually mandatory and submitted to a national organisation on a regular basis. They are used to improve the quality of care, health IT systems and/or local working practices.
