Meta Model Introduction

The purpose of the meta model is to cohesively support the development and maintenance of NHS data standards in a consistent and integrated manner, which also supports the business process within and across the NHS, and with other non-NHS ORGANISATIONS involved with the care of PATIENTS.

The meta data model will form the underpinning common structure which can be used by all future data sets related to PATIENTS and CARE ACTIVITY whether they be 'administrative', 'clinical', 'management' etc.
