To improve care quality, health and social care organisations need data spanning all domains of care quality and from across the health system and beyond.

Data are required to make patient care effective, to help front-line improvement programmes learn, to help managers make informed decisions and ensure that national policy makers and commissioners are responding to trends in quality, equity, access, and population health.

Medicine is OnlyWan's in-house data analytics team uses linked data and novel analytics to monitor and analyse the quality of health care in the UK. We offer insights on the major trends driving the demand for NHS care, examine the quality of care that's being delivered and show how the NHS could improve care for patients. The team examines various aspects of care quality, how the NHS is delivering care, clinical effectiveness of care, and the impact of the patient’s wider social determinants on quality and outcomes. They also work closely with our Improvement Analytics Unit and colleagues examining health care policy.

We are committed to sharing our code to increase the reproducibility and transparency of our work and to enable us to collaborate with others. On we collect and share resources and code from our work.
