The Importance of Data Quality

23 October 2018

Guidance on a data quality framework for health and social care

A considerable amount of data is collected on a regular basis about health and social care services in Ireland.

It is vital that there is confidence and trust in the quality of this data and information in order to support the provision of safe and efficient health and social care to patients and service users.

HIQA has recently published The Data Quality Guidance, along with a Background paper and an interactive version of the Data Quality Assessment Tool in relation to a Data Quality Framework for health and social care.

An animation on the importance of data quality has also been developed.
