CQC could use care.data information for intelligent monitoring

Comment

Surely care.data is one of the few datasets that could usefully be used to compare and benchmark nationally performance at individual GP and surgery level? It is currently nigh on impossible to understand in a meaningful way if patients are receiving better quality of care at one practice than another. Any metrics developed of course need to be developed in collaboration with clinicians.
