Data access and research

Audit data for research and analysis

image1

NICOR has a strong and growing research agenda, and welcomes applications from academic groups to use audit data in research projects. We are especially interested in research which aims to identify best practice in clinical management and service coordination and design.

NICOR’s research activities are managed through a research committee, which reports to the NICOR executive. The research executive has responsibility for overseeing the development of research opportunities for the audit data, and for the development of the emerging research strategy. 

To maximise the research capability, each audit has its own research group which serves a number of purposes, including determining research questions answerable by single or combined datasets and facilitating the research use of the datasets. Audit research groups will be responsible for assessing applications for use of data which involve only one dataset, while the NICOR research executive will consider applications to use data from multiple audits.

We have provided additional information we think will be useful in making an application to use this data.

NICOR are currently only making MINAP data available up to September 2013.
