Health Data and Information

Overview

An important prerequisite for health systems and services research is the availability of timely and relevant health system data, and the application of appropriate analysis methods of coded patient and health system information.

As displayed in the triangle below, a main objective of the Swiss Learning Health System (SLHS) is to establish reporting standards for health information, the storage of health related data in a data warehouse and the establishment of a Health System Lab that provides the technologies to test new theories and policy interventions.
