For hospital clinical and audit teams
NICOR is releasing a set of quality improvement metrics this year for the following sub audits:
- Adult surgery (NACSA dataset)
- Angioplasty (NAPCI/BCIS dataset)
- Arrhythmia (NACRM dataset)
- Congenital heart disease (NCHDA dataset)
- Heart attacks (MINAP dataset)
- Heart failure (NHFA dataset)
Data is submitted to the audits by direct entry into the collection system, via the secure web portal, or by exporting data collected from a local data collection system.
Audit data can be submitted to NICOR as frequently as your schedule allows. We recommend regular – ideally monthly – data submissions.
If you are using a local database within your organisation to collect data, an upload schedule should be agreed with whoever is responsible for exporting and importing the data.
Our secure web portal allows users to submit data directly to our servers.
