NICE- National Intensive Care Registry

The NICE Research&Support (NICE R&S) group within the department of medical informatics is responsible for processing ICU data from all Dutch hospitals. We control data quality, develop case-mix correction methods, develop audit and feedback tools to support the hospitals to gain insight into their quality and improve on areas with room for improvement. Furthermore, we assist ICUs in their scientific and practical research questions. The board of the NICE foundation develops together with the hospitals the policy of the quality registry from which work instructions to NICE R&S are derived. NICE R&S’s Quality- and Information security management system for medical registries has been certified according to the ISO 9001:2015 and ISO 27001:2013 norms.
