Outcomes are focused on the impact of care processes on individuals. They cover how care has affected people’s physical, functional or psychological status.

We consider outcomes measures in context of the service and the specifics of the measure.

Some examples of outcome measures are:

  • mortality rates
  • emergency admissions and re-admission rates to hospital
  • infection control rates
  • vaccination and prescribing data.

We source the information from:

  • patient level data sets
  • national clinical audits
  • initiatives such as the patient reported outcome measures (PROMs) programme.
