Comparable ambulance data called for16th September 2011
More standardised data on the performance of ambulance services has been called for in a new report from the Commons’ Public Accounts Committee.
In a report into its hearing on the National Audit Office’s ‘Transforming NHS Ambulance Services’ inquiry, it says performance information is not always comparable, which makes it difficult to benchmark services and identify the scope for efficiency improvements. It wants the Department of Health to set standard definitions for the data to be measured by each ambulance service to enable benchmarking, and certify the quality of data-generating systems.
