Data can come from the primary, hospital or specialist healthcare services of each regional government that have their own information system based on two sources of information (medical history and/or injury report). The private primary healthcare services do not provide any type of information but the specialist ones, such as the MBDS (Minimum Basic Data Set), increasingly envisage private hospitals, so the data of these hospitals are starting to be included. The Commission on Violence Against Women of the National Health System’s Inter-Territorial Council centralises the information that is collected from the regional health departments at the public health department level and provides the data from the corresponding Health Service.
Quality assurance process
The main strength is that the methodology has been built jointly between the different entities of the National Health System and the Autonomous Communities. This allows for a homogeneous terminology and common tools for data collection. The Commission on Gender Violence, to begin work early detection, prevention, it was created in November 2004. It has five working groups established in 2006, which three are crucial to ensure administrative data quality: -Healthcare Information Systems and Epidemiological Surveillance: It guides and monitors as these systems adapt their content, incorporate all the variables needed to have indicators of epidemiological surveillance of Gender Violence served in the System. -Training of health personnel: Responsible for deciding objectives, common educational content -Development of common protocols for health care: People that take part in these working groups, are who capture and collect data to take them to Observatory on Women's Health. Are those requesting the data and the companions of the health management service in their regions. Corresponding service is requested, which is usually a health Planning Department or similar. There is a Commission on Evaluation in order to guarantee de quality assurance process
Problems. The data reflect only cases detected and attended to in healthcare services and by no means the number of women being brutalised in each AC. Each registered Problems. case corresponds exclusively to a woman over 14 years of age who in a healthcare service expresses for the first time that she is being abused and so the professional taking care of her registers it. Weakness detected: Since not all Autonomous Communities have a Unified Medical History on a Computer System, there is a lack of homogeneity affects the comparability between data packets, the existence of possible duplication of data in regions that work even through Injuries Report.
