Registering for NAIC 2018 
There is still time for both providers and commissioners to register to take part in the audit. Please contact the NAIC Support Team for more information. 
Over 650 intermediate care services and over 90 commissioning organisations are registered to take part in NAIC 2018 with coverage across England, Wales and Northern Ireland.

NAIC 2018 is free 
There is no cost for providers and commissioners in England, Wales and Northern Ireland to participate in the audit. A copy of the NAIC 2018 audit proposal is available to download.

Why should we participate? 
Intermediate care services are key to reducing the financial, quality and activity pressures being experienced in secondary care and the care service sector. The audit will enable you to address the following:

  • Compare investment and activity in your intermediate care services with other local areas
  • Identify service improvement opportunities such as accessibility, waiting times and productivity
  • Check your length of stay and intensity of input to service users are in line with other comparable services
  • Consider cost saving opportunities such as skill mix and bank and agency spend
  • Understand the level of dependency of your patient cohort
  • Compare your service user outcomes based on a standardised outcome measure, and your service user experience scores, to other services

The project allows commissioners / funders and providers to consider both the national answer and, importantly, how your local health and social care economy is performing.
