One of our key aims is to research how best to use administrative databases to inform how the NHS is performing both overall but also at the level of hospital, surgeon and within primary care. Challenges that we tackle include how to best process these complex data sets, indicator development, risk adjustment, statistical monitoring and feeding back results to NHS stakeholders.
