Describing and evaluating health systems Introduction In addition to the limitations of the data, some of these studies are problematic because the theoretical basis of the relationships is not set out clearly, often giving the impression that the model was driven by data availability rather than plausible mechanisms and, especially when studies use a measure of adult mortality (such as life expectancy) as a dependent variable, they fail to take account of the wellknown lag effects between exposures and outcomes that affect many disease processes.

This line of reasoning seems, however, slightly at odds with the rather narrow objective of evaluating the technical quality of health care. Selection of indicators and availability of data Limited data availability and lack of uniformity of data across different settings pose substantial challenges to most initiatives seeking to assess health system performance. 117] at [07/18/16].
