Quarterly Quality Report (QQR)
The QQR is based on a unit’s validated data and is the main product of the CMP. The QQR allows for the provision of up-to-date comparative data on case mix, activity and outcome to assist local quality improvement.
The CMP produces an Annual Quality Report. This publically available account compares the risk-adjusted mortality and key quality indicators at various levels (for critical care units, hospitals and Trusts), for the period 1 April to 31 March annually.
We produce annual ‘Summary Statistics’ that include overall, median and trended data across our Potential Quality Indicators, case mix and other regularly requested items. These statistics are a ‘first port of call’ for those seeking robust national data on ICU outcomes.
National analysesWe actively encourage using the CMP Database for research and analyses on adult critical care. Analyses are also produced using data from the CMP Database in conjunction with other databases (through data linkage or data sharing).
We have produced numerous local and national analyses, and all of our recent national, anonymised analyses are available to everyone.
Requests for ad hoc analyses on your unit’s data for local quality improvement initiatives are produced free of charge. See Access our data for full details.
The CMP provides units with the opportunity to participate in both local (e.g. hospital, Trust) and wider (e.g. Operational Delivery Networks, regional etc.) comparative reports. ICNARC provides high quality, comparative data analyses for the purpose of quality improvement at all levels.
Where units wish to participate in these reports, ICNARC will seek formal, written consent from units ahead of any report being produced.
The CMP is listed in the Department of Health’s ‘Quality Accounts' as a recognised national audit by the National Advisory Group on Clinical Audit & Enquiries (NAGCAE) for ‘Acute’ care.
