The Data group of the Network within its terms of reference works to define ,validate & improve upon the information needs of Critical Care to meet the demands placed upon the service.

Information is collected from a range of data & information flows and includes both clinical data through Clinical Information systems, inputs from units into the  Intensive Care National Audit and Research Centre (ICNARC), the  National Critical Care Minimum  Data Set (CCMDS), Hospital Episodes & Statistics (HES)  as well as information for service design and delivery from a range of agencies such as The Intensive Care Bed Bureau (ICBIS).
