Making clinical audit data transparent

In his transparency and open data letter to Cabinet Ministers on 7 July 2011, the Prime Minister made a commitment to make clinical audit data available from the national audits within the National Clinical Audit and Patient Outcomes Programme.

Each year data from the National Diabetes Inpatient Audit will be made available in CSV format. The data are also being made available on the website.

What information is being made available?

Audit participation by NHS Trust and data completeness for the key fields.

Measures about the process of care given to patients.

Information about care outcomes and treatment.

Trusts and Networks are identified by name and their national code. These data do not list individual patient information, nor do they contain any patient identifiable data.

The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit (NaDIA) is commissioned by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) and delivered by the Health and Social Care Information Centre, working with Diabetes UK.

The National Diabetes Inpatient Audit is a snapshot audit of diabetes inpatient care in England. The audit is set out to answer the following questions:

Did diabetes management minimise the risk of avoidable complications?

Did harm result from the inpatient stay?

Was patient experience of the inpatient stay favourable?

Has the quality of care and patient feedback changed since NaDIA 2010?

The audit takes place every year in autumn. NaDIA 2011 was carried out by diabetes teams in acute hospitals in England on a nominated day in the first two weeks of October
