Abstract

UK general practice is computerised, and quality targets based on computer data provide a further incentive to improve data quality. A National Programme for Information Technology is standardising the technical infrastructure and removing some of the barriers to data aggregation. Routinely collected data is an underused resource, yet little has been written about the wide range of factors that need to be taken into account if we are to infer meaning from general practice data.
