“Data analysis helps to improve cancer care because it provides us with an opportunity to see how our care and outcomes compare to the other provinces. We can always do analysis within our province, but we won’t know whether the provincial average is the best, the worst, or middle of the road. This gives us a comparison so we can identify where to improve and target efforts.”
