Die von Florence Nightingale entwickelten medizinischen Klassifikationssysteme wurden, zunächst versuchsweise, in verschiedenen Londoner Krankenhäusern eingesetzt. Ihr Ziel war die Kontrolle des Erfolgs der angewandten Therapien:

"Miss Nightingales's proposed forms would enable the mortality in hospitals, and the mortality from particular diseases, injuries, and operations to be ascertained with accuracy; an these facts together with the duration of cases, would enable the value of particular methods of treatment and of special operations to be brought to statistical proof. The sanitary state of the hospital itself could likewise be ascertained." (Cook [1] S.2).
