• Provide a rationale for collecting reliable and valid data about the health status of clients, which are essential for effective decision making and implementation.
• Help to establish criteria to measure the quality of nursing care
• Help build a common nursing terminology to use in communicating with other health professionals. Ideas are developed and words defined.
