They are any piece of information about your clinics activity that is regularly recorded and reviewed to provide an insight into how the clinic is performing relative to previous time periods. The time period over which information is collected can vary from days to weeks to months to years or any other time frame.
KPI's are examined to see if the activity or performance or other measure is rising or falling or steady. Based upon their review, a clinic may change its activity or confirm that an improvement has been achieved or that the system is not performing to expectation and needs to be investigated.
Examples of KPI. These may include:

Number of new cases/month
Proportion of young to older women treated/quarter.
Number of ultrasound scans per week per ultrasonographer
Number of donor sperm inseminations per week
