Healthcare Evaluation Data

Healthcare Evaluation Data (HED) is an online system allowing comparison of hospitals across the country. This sharing of information enables healthcare organisations to drive clinical performance in order to improve patient care and deliver financial savings. HED is only available to healthcare professionals, and not to the public.

The system has been developed in-house at University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust (UHB), with strong clinical engagement. As a result, HED delivers timely, detailed intelligence that can provide meaningful insight from board to ward alike. If you would like more information about the system, please see the HED website (see 'Links' section below).

HED uses information about individual patients to help improve the quality of care. Wherever possible, the data is anonymised, but occasionally authorised users will use patients’ personal data to help with clinical audits and case note reviews. This is to improve future patient care and is only used within the NHS by trained, approved users.

If you would like to find out more about HED, or you are not happy with us using your personal data in this way or you would like to opt-out, please see our HED questions and answers for details.
