Historical health statistics enable us to identify current concepts in health care through comparison to past occurrences and be able to improve the health status of the people. Allocation of resources, research, and clinical trials, new approaches to treatments, laboratory analysis, treatment costs and durations, health care teaching, patient satisfaction, and mortalities among others are greatly influenced by health statistics through applications and references. Health statistics are therefore crucial in health care for understanding, advocacy and improvement of aspects relating to people’s health (Bauer, 2017).
Health care historical statistics have been applied in determining how health care resources will be utilized. Through demographic data that identifies gender, age, financial capabilities, race orientation among other classifications; it is easier to assess the services needed, resources to be allocated and whether health administrators need to recommend for grants from the government. Statistics also help to verify the quality of medication offered and the areas for improvement through standard assessments and benchmarking. In the pursuit of quality improvement, health statistics can also influence the development of new and better products. Due to improvements in technologies and advancement in research, better trials can be done and superior medication products invented (Ekin, 2019).
Anderson and May in their 1992 report on infectious diseases called Infectious Disease of Human; published a mathematical presentation on how HIV epidemic transmission was spreading across the globe. This report was critical since it offered quantifiable results on the effectiveness of the fight against the spread of HIV and other infectious diseases such as tuberculosis. It is through this report finding that other works such as the impact of influenza occurrence were based both in its monitoring and modeling. Mapping of virus strains due to improved laboratory techniques enabled epidemiology research from 1992 courtesy of Anderson and May publication (Bauer, 2017).
