Using Health Data addresses the enduring problem faced by most healthcare workers: the transformation and presentation of data into meaningful and accessible information. This practical new text will guide the manipulation of health data needed by the ‘doers’ and ‘users’ of health data. Using Health Data takes ‘real’ examples from healthcare practice to illustrate, demonstrate and provide advice. It also describes various quantitative quality control charting and plotting methods to enable the effective presentation of data. While the text addresses the fundamentals of data manipulation, the interactive companion website allows readers to practice transforming real data into meaningful information.Using Health Data will aid the reader in:- understanding how to transform qualitative data into quantitative measures; - linking data from multiple sources to create new information and - differentiating between different types of health data; administrative, for planning or resource scheduling; and clinical evidence.
"The reader is taken through the core functions of the programs clearly and logically...The book is useful for students and qualified staff who need Office to write letters, analyse basic data, create a database and give a presentation...This is a helpful source of information.
