The Irish Hip Fracture Database (IHFD) is a web based system that uses the HIPE (Hospital In-patient Enquiry) portal infrastructure. It audits care standards and outcomes for patients with hip fractures.

The purpose of NOCA is to develop a prospective audit of care standards and outcomes for hip fracture care and use synergy of standards, data and feedback to focus attention on hip fracture care locally and nationally. It benchmarks care and uses data to create a drive for sustained improvements in clinical standards and cost effectiveness.
