Global Focus: Continental Europe
Having co-founded the Global Comparators project with participants from Benelux (including Leuven and all eight Dutch university hospitals) we have recently seen dramatic growth in Finland, Denmark and especially Norway.
The Nordic region now contributes the largest number of participants around the world. In Norway we are working with the South East Norwegian Regional Authority as part of their drive to improve quality via benchmarking and data analysis. In southern Europe we recently welcomed the Barcelona stroke registry to Global Comparators, introducing a new dataset to the project. We are also collaborating with the Catalan health authority benchmarking data from all 64 clinics across the region with hospitals in NHS England.
We are working on pilot projects in Germany, focusing on regional benchmarking, and we anticipate the first German members joining Global Comparators soon.
