"In God We Trust; All Others Bring Data."

Lloyd, Robert C.
June 2007
Frontiers of Health Services Management;Summer2007, Vol. 23 Issue 4, p33
The author comments on the growing demands for data being placed on healthcare providers. He asserts that most of the data demands placed on healthcare providers seem to stem from the rising number of regional, state, local agencies and organizations that have decided to place their own data requirements on the healthcare industry. He adds that the demand gives a wonderful framework for understanding the context and evolution of the national movement toward greater data transparency.
