How do we compare with other organizations like us? Is our care getting better or worse – what’s the trend? What are the root causes of problems in quality of care? Are we on track to achieve key quality & safety objectives? Are patients receiving care based on internationally accepted standards of care? It is widely believed that there is an unacceptably high number of patient safety issues in provision of patient care
