Health care quality and data analytics

Understanding the quality of health care, through in-depth analysis of policy and data, is essential to identify how it can be improved


We bring insights that NHS leaders and policymakers can use to improve health and social care, by drawing on our analysis of data from the NHS and other organisations, as well as our experiences of working closely with the NHS.

We also offer support for health and related organisations to use data better, including by funding innovative analytics.
