COMMISSIONING DATA SET OVERVIEW

Change to Supporting Information: Changed Description

In achieving this, the Health and Social Care Information Centre will enable healthcare professionals to measure and compare the delivery and quality of care provided and to support them in sharing information with other health professionals and organisations.The primary purpose of national data sets is to enable conformant health information to be generated across the country, independent of the ORGANISATION or system that maintains it.
