Healthcare organizations and providers are being held accountable for the care they give and for their processes of improving care safety and quality to an unprecedented degree. In countries around the world, there is a pressing need to develop infrastructure for accountability of healthcare to support performance measurement and reporting activities. Yet, little research exists on the design, development, management, or governance of infrastructure for accountability in healthcare, nor on practices of data sharing and reuse that are central to healthcare performance measurement. This paper draws on literature on data sharing and cyberinfrastructure for eScience to identify key concepts from research on supporting collaborative scienctific practice to inform research on practices and infrastructure for healthcare accountability.
