It summarises existing experiences in EU on health data and indicators by reviewing and identifying existing standardised data collection methods and common procedures; prepare best practices in accessibility, availability, and reporting in health information; maintain and develop identified standardised data collection methods and related quality assurance procedures. WP8 also contributes to improved and sustainable use and usability of ECHI, according to technical and content updates and links to policy.
