​​​​CORE - Adult Patient Database (APD)


The Adult Patient Database (APD) contains data from over 1,300,000 patient episodes and is one of the largest single datasets on intensive care in the world. The database collects episodes from over 140 intensive care units from Australia and New Zealand on a quarterly basis. This data is used to benchmark the performance of individual contributing units. Analysis of data is reported back to contributing ICUs via an on-line reporting tool, the CORE Portal.

For further information regarding variables collected by the APD please see the following pages: Data Colle​​ction Tools and APD Data Submission.

​If you would like to start contributing to the APD, please contact ANZICS CORE for more information.
