Clinical quality areas within HED allow your organisation to focus on quality of patient care.

HED offers a range of clinical dashboards and modules which offer dynamic drill down functionality to enable users to understand the root cause of potential problems and optimise case note reviews.


Monitoring mortality is an essential part of assuring high quality of clinical care. Standardised mortality models are updated with the most recent national data set every month. HED publishes HSMR monthly and SHMI in monthly and quarterly formats as well as other mortality measures.
