National Library of Quality Assured Indicators

The regulations underpinning the Health and Social Care Act 2012 tasked the HSCIC to "establish procedures for the assessment of a quality indicator; establish, maintain and publish a database of quality indicators; and arrange for each quality indicator published in the library to be periodically reviewed".

Indicators that have been assured by the Indicator Assurance Service and signed off by the Indicator Governance Board are registered in this Library of Quality Assured Indicators.

The Library will provide a resource where users can select indicators which have been assured as being based on sound methodologies commonly understood across the care system. Although the HSCIC is the holder of the library, open involvement and ownership of the process across the care system is central to a robust Indicator Assurance Service.
