The Performance Assessment Tool for Quality Improvement in Hospitals (PATH) was developed by the WHO Regional Office for Europe to support hospitals in collecting data on their performance, identifying how they are doing in comparison to their peer group and initiating quality improvement activities. In this article Groene describes the development process for the PATH conceptual model, the results of the pilot test of the PATH project in 51 hospitals in six countries. Groene discusses also how hospital performance data can be analysed and visualized to induce quality improvement in hospitals. Groene closes the discussion by reviewing the outputs of the PATH project in 2007 and address limitations to which such outputs can stimulate learning.
