ANZICS CORE Registries

The ANZICS Centre for Outcome and Resource Evaluation (ANZICS CORE) has provided a bi-national peer review and quality assurance program to provide audit and benchmarking services for Intensive Care Units (ICUs) across Australian and New Zealand since 1992. This capability is uniquely provided by ANZICS, which offers this program across regional, state, national and international jurisdictions.

Data submitted to the registries is used for comparative benchmarking by the ICU peer groups with reports provided to submitting units ICUs and jurisdictional funders.

AIMS of the ICU Registries Program

  • Provision of comparative benchmarking reports to submitting ICUs and health departments detailing variation in process measures, quality of care indicators and risk-adjusted clinical outcomes
  • Identification and analysis of outlier ICUs
  • Provision of Data Quality training workshops to support submission of high quality data
  • Assist researchers to identify potential areas for improvement of Intensive Care practices and patient outcomes.

All Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Units are invited to contribute to the ANZICS CORE Registries. ​Free software (COMET) is provided to units to assist in the collection of data.
