The Adult Patient Database (APD), operated by Australian and New Zealand Intensive Care Society (ANZICS), contains data from over 2 million patient episodes and is one of the largest single datasets on intensive care in the world. The database collects episodes from over 90% of intensive care units across 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 the CORE Portal, an on-line reporting tool.
