A Framework to Assess Healthcare Data Quality


Assessing data quality is a fundamental task during the research process. Information derived from data of inadequate quality may lead to invalid conclusions and misinformed management decisions for healthcare organisations. To minimise such risk a data quality framework can be utilised to ensure suitability and to quality assure datasets. This current research involved a review of existing frameworks and the formation of a new framework which combines quality criteria derived from different research disciplines. The current framework is robust, it can effectively assess data quality across a range of criteria and supports researchers to formulate a decision on whether to use the dataset. Further development of the quality framework would include an emphasis on the interdependencies of quality criteria.
