General practices and general practitioners that analyse and act on their patient data can have a greater insight into the needs of their patients, and are better positioned to provide the care that patients need, when they need it. Accurate patient data can highlight the most prevalent conditions, medications or social groups, and can help determine what conditions need to be prioritised.
The Royal Australian College of General Practitioners (RACGP) mandates the use of patient data for quality improvement as part of its Standards for General Practices, 5th edition.
