Unique benefits across the whole organisation

Although CRAB has its roots in surgical audit, the breadth and quality of information now provided means that the benefits are relevant to a wider audience than simply clinical staff.

CRAB analysis can be tailored for use by senior management and hospital executives to gain an independent view of the quality of care across multiple sites.

Care commissioners can use in-depth CRAB analysis as a more relevant alternative to the published SHMI and HSMR data.
