The primary mandate of the Health Information and Quality Authority (the Authority) is to drive patient safety in health and social care in Ireland. A key component of this work relates to effectively monitoring the performance of healthcare services. Key performance indicators (KPIs) are an essential tool in this process as they enable the public, service users and healthcare providers alike to have reliable information on current and desired standards in healthcare services. KPIs are used to identify where performance is good and meeting desired standards, and where performance requires improvement.
