The European Commission’s 2014 report highlighted the importance of measuring, evaluating and comparing the quality of health care systems at the EU level in a way that enhances transparency and fruitful exchange of experience and knowledge in order to continually improve health care services effectiveness in Europe and to evaluate both services and applied policies (European Commission, 9 October 2014).
The Euro-Mediterranean Institute provides Certified Statistical Measurements and Reported Indicators (KPIs) related to clinical and management efficacy and health service performance data. The purpose of data validation is to ensure a certain level of quality and reliability of the statistical reports measuring performance and outcome which are being produced and published by the health care providers.
