General practice takes care of all Swedish citizens through the Health care units (vårdcentraler). It has been a major challenge to measure quality as the tasks are diverse and it is not always easy to agree what to measure and how to follow use the data. Another challenge is to use the same data sources in all 21 counties, to be able to benchmark, and to collect data from different medical records. When the national “primary healthcare quality” was launched after years of professional discussions, Uppsala decided to use SAS to extract data, and present it for the users to drive quality improvement. We will try to show how we used SAS in an innovative way and what we learnt doing it.
