Don’s message to the NHS is clear. It’s impossible to improve without information. Using data to guide and test improvement increases our ability to make rapid evidence based changes that provide greater benefits to patients, their families and the communities that we serve. Through this programme, commissioners have a great opportunity to effectively link the use of data for improvement to systemic change in pursuit of better health, better care and better outcomes for the population.
