Tim Wilton
Chairman NJR Data Quality Committee

Data quality lies at the very heart of the NJR, as without confidence in the entered data, the output cannot be relied upon. Data quality comprises two main elements, case ascertainment and data entry accuracy.

This year the committee has continued to oversee the annual audit of case ascertainment of hips and knees with audits for years 2016/17 and 2017/18 now both completed. This gives us close to 100% data completeness (only cases not identified by both the hospital administration systems and the NJR are likely to be missing) since these audits started in 2014.
