Why do we collect normative data?

The sun is still shining in Cincinnati although many of us in the conference hotel are seeing very little of it. Thought I’d share the podium presentation I’ve just made which reflects on why it is that we collect service specific normative reference data. It’s my feeling  that this should be to allow us to compare data between services in order to develop consistent practices rather than as a way to allow us to continue to tolerate differences in the way different services make measurements. Anyway if you want to you can listen to the screen cast below.

There was an interesting technical extension to the work which I was unable to include in the presentation because of tht time limit. This is covered in the screen cast below.
