Data Quality Maturity Index

NHS Digital has published the latest Data Quality Maturity Index (DQMI). The DQMI provides CCGs with the opportunity to investigate and engage in data quality improvement with providers.

Key improvements for this publication include the grouping of scores by commissioner region, the addition of the maternity services dataset and the reporting of default values. The proportion of default values will not affect the overall DQMI score in August 2016, but is included to highlight to providers that the overuse of default values reduces the usefulness of data.
