This Evidence Check examined organisations that have a key role in healthcare performance measurement and reporting across developed economies. A total of 34 organisations from 12 countries were included in the analysis, with the aim of identifying trends in terms of mandates, functions, structure and staffing, stakeholder engagement, analytic frameworks or indicator sets and outputs and publications. The measurement and reporting of unwarranted clinical variation, adverse events and patient safety were also considered. Key lessons emerged about indicator frameworks, independence, quality assurance and data availability.
