The National CKD Audit Outlier Management policy details the processes by which data on outlier practices are verified and notified.
Practices should note that:
- A practice will be notified if their round 1 data indicates they are an outlier. This will mean they have at least 3 months to undertake local quality improvement to correct this.
- Round 1 data is NOT published.
- Practices can view their data locally at any time to determine if there are any data quality issues, and the QI tool will help you improve this data.
- IF your round 2 data looks like it is an outlier we will follow the procedure detailed in the Outlier Management policy.
