Description:

National Intensive Care Audit is a computer-based system designed to collect demographic, clinical and outcome details on admissions to ICU’s, in acute hospitals nationally.

National ICU Audit aims to;
- Measure indicators of the quality of care in each ICU and benchmark these against other units in Ireland and the UK through the ICNARC Casemix Programme (Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre – the UK body for ICU Audit).

- Measure activity in each unit to aid the planning of critical care services locally and nationally.

- Provide data on complexity of care provided for each patient with potential to link this to reimbursement in the future.

- Improve the quality of data for HIPE by providing data on procedures and diagnoses arising while the patient is in ICU.

- Provide data on cost efficiency of each Unit by measuring cost per bed day and linking this to complexity of care.

- Support Irish and international research to enhance patient care.
