In Norway, as of 2012, new legislation mandated development of national quality indicators to track and measure performance in the Norwegian national health services. The purpose was to provide decision making support for service providers and citizens. Citizens have the right to choose their preferred service provider, but lacks information to make their choices. The Norwegian Directorate of Health needed to align the reporting standards, and set out to present this information in an easy to consume format for citizens. They also wanted to ensure a proper process for managing the underlying data, changes and slipstreaming new indicators as needed.
