Evidence synthesis and data in health services

Being able to synthesise existing published evidence into a form that decision-makers understand and can use is an important part of a dynamic and efficient health service. Too many decisions are made without proper consideration of evidence and this stream will work to address the issue. Of equal importance is using real time data generated about individual patients by health services to innovate and improve. Benefits could emerge for quality and safety, value for money and innovation for better models of care. There is substantial overlap with this stream and the other ones.
