NICOR (National Institute for Cardiovascular Outcomes Research) is part of the National Centre for Cardiovascular Preventions and Outcomes (NCCPO), which sits within the Institute of Cardiovascular Science (ICS) at University College London (UCL).
NICOR collects clinical information from UK hospitals into secure registries established by the cardiovascular specialist societies.
We help the NHS, the government and regulatory bodies improve quality of care by checking that the care received by heart disease patients meets good practice standards. We do this by conducting clinical audit and by comparing patient outcomes, such as casemix-adjusted survival and readmission rates.
Our reports and online public portals help hospitals and health improvement bodies to monitor practice, inform patient choices about their place of care, and build public confidence in NHS cardiac care.
NICOR encourages research using real world data to complement and refine the lessons learnt from randomised clinical trials.
