Quality care initiative is essential in building up the existing work for post-acute and long-term care profession by setting specific, quantifiable targets to further advance the quality care of skilled nurses and the supported living communities. It increases the chances of desired health outcomes. On the other hand, performance indicators measure the performance and of healthcare service using appropriate inpatient administrative data for instance Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (AHRQ). The agency determines the standards of quality health care delivery and if the patient-caregiver meets the criteria. AHRQ supports important research to improve patient safety, and clinical decision making as well as decrease medical errors while
aiming at enhancing access to quality healthcare. Conclusion Generally, the application of EBP and research in healthcare helps healthcare providers to come up with informed patient-care decision that fulfills the goal of nursing. Furthermore, Healthcare information is so crucial that it improves the quality of healthcare delivery, increases patient safety, reduces medical errors and strengthens the relationship and collaboration between healthcare providers and their clients. Consequently, the use of data mining in healthcare issues opportunities for building knowledge of many nurses that help in assisting important linkages between nursing intervention and patients' outcomes.
