Many of our quality improvement tools can also work with CHART Online. CHART Online is a way for practices to compare their data to others in their locality and benchmark against national data if they wish to do so. CHART Online is a secure, central database storage facility with associated online reporting and interactive display functionality, held at the University of Nottingham. Results are displayed via a web browser.
CHART Online has supported many high-profile national projects, with over 7,300 individual GP practices in England having uploaded their data to PRIMIS.
