Ensuring effective as well as efficient care became a central function of the chief nurse executive during the late 1980s and the current decade. Concomitantly, the public is demanding more accountability, more involvement, and more information about healthcare services. The public wants evidence that care is delivered when it is necessary, in the most competent and cost-effective manner, and with interventions that lead to the desired outcomes. Access to information is considered a corporate strategic resource and key to making appropriate allocation decisions as well as the source of required evaluative data for the public.
