Care Quality Tracker

Care Quality Tracker is the only online quality monitoring tool designed with and for English NHS acute healthcare organisations that acts as an early warning system.

High-level information on the Care Quality Commission's Intelligent Monitoring framework

Care Quality Tracker enables users to investigate and address potential issues before they receive reports from the Care Quality Commission, the regulator for hospitals, care homes, dental and primary care surgeries, and all other care services in England.

English NHS acute organisations are provided with high-level information on the Care Quality Commission (CQC)’s most recent surveillance indicators in order to conduct their quality monitoring. Care Quality Tracker provides you with robust, up-to-date data to inform your quality improvement activities, in advance of receiving the regulator’s reports.
