Making a difference

Having an impact by enabling better decisions and creating better systems with better evidence

How do we measure our impact? In support of our vision of a healthier world, we decided to review everything we were doing (our continuum of services) to help deliver better evidence, better decisions, and better systems – and deliver evidence of that in this impact report. 

These three important healthcare provision components help support improved health outcomes and create a healthier world. And this review has started providing us with the framework for benchmarking and measuring the outcomes of our work.

They also provide us with the right criteria to track future performance based on external markers with tangible proof of impact. It will also be a guide for setting additional goals across the organization. We bring to you our first impact report below or download here.

Having more evidence of what achieves the best results for health professionals will help unlock new and exciting opportunities for BMJ and hold us to account in delivering our mission.
