Case study: Harnessing data for local quality improvement in asthma

20 Jan 2016 | Health Quality Intelligence

This case study describes a project run by Te Awakairangi Health Network (TeAHN) to use local data relating to asthma to:

  • identify practice variation
  • explore the local drivers contributing to variation
  • support quality improvement.

Data from the Health Quality & Safety Commission’s Atlas of Healthcare Variation gave TeAHN a starting point for conducting local analysis, with an equity focus, and considering system-level factors that contribute to observed variation.
