Define health care statistics

Question Description
I don’t understand this Statistics question and need help to study.

You are a health care administrator (HCA) for a community hospital named Choice Hospital. As the HCA, you are working with new staff who will assist you with data collection and analysis for tracking and benchmarking performance in several key areas of the facility. As you work with the new staff, you will help them understand the meaning of health statistics and the external resources available for locating health care statistics by completing the following:

Define health care statistics.
Explain the purpose of collecting and reviewing healthcare statistics
Identify 2 organizations that use health care statistics at the local, state, and national levels (e.g., CMS hospital system)
Identify 2 sources that are available to obtain healthcare statistics

You must proofread your paper. But do not strictly rely on your computer’s spell-checker and grammar-checker; failure to do so indicates a lack of effort on your part and you can expect your grade to suffer accordingly. Papers with numerous misspelled words and grammatical mistakes will be penalized. Read over your paper – in silence and then aloud – before handing it in and make corrections as necessary. Often it is advantageous to have a friend proofread your paper for obvious errors. Handwritten corrections are preferable to uncorrected mistakes.

Use a standard 10 to 12 point (10 to 12 characters per inch) typeface. Smaller or compressed type and papers with small margins or single-spacing are hard to read. It is better to let your essay run over the recommended number of pages than to try to compress it into fewer pages.

Likewise, large type, large margins, large indentations, triple-spacing, increased leading (space between lines), increased kerning (space between letters), and any other such attempts at “padding” to increase the length of a paper are unacceptable, wasteful of trees, and will not fool your professor.

The paper must be neatly formatted, double-spaced with a one-inch margin on the top, bottom, and sides of each page. When submitting hard copy, be sure to use white paper and print out using dark ink. If it is hard to read your essay, it will also be hard to follow your argument.
