Good sign up so far
We are pleased to say that sign up so far has been very successful with a good proportion of both commissioners and providers in England signing up and 100% coverage in both Wales and Northern Ireland.
NAIC 2017 is free
There is no cost to organisations within England, Wales and Northern Ireland to participate in the NAIC 2017. A copy of the NAIC 2017 audit proposal is available to download.
Deadline looming for participation in the PREM and Service User Audit
A highly innovative element of the audit has been the introduction of standardised outcome and patient reported experience measures as part of the service user audit. In order for providers of intermediate care services to participate in this part of the audit, registration must be completed by the 17th March 2017.
Why should my organisation participate?
The NAIC, now in its fifth iteration, provides a unique assessment of progress in community services aimed at maximising independence and reducing use of hospitals and care homes. Intermediate care services are key to reducing the financial, quality and activity pressures being experienced in secondary care and the care service sector. The unique combination of organisational data and outcomes data collected in the audit enables us to address the following questions:
- Does intermediate care work?
- Is it cost effective?
- Do we have enough capacity to make a difference?
- What are the features of a “good” service?
- How do we make the case for investment?
The project allows commissioners / funders and providers to consider both the national answers to these questions but also, importantly, how their local health and social care economy is performing on these key issues. Audit participants can access their local results via an online toolkit.
