The accuracy of hospitals' reported data can affect the number of patients they attract and their reimbursement, as hospitals are becoming financially accountable for quality care. In addition, hospital leaders make decisions based on data; if the data are faulty, hospital leaders' decisions may negatively influence the safety and quality of care.
