Manage, monitor and gather evidence on NICE Guidelines and NICE Quality Standards

NICEAssure is a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) application that allows organisations to manage, monitor and gather evidence on NICE Guidelines and NICE Quality Standards. With NICE Guidelines, organisations can ensure the latest guidelines are distributed to the relevant department, division or service. It allows organisations to evidence the implementation of the guidelines and even manage action plans associated with becoming compliant.

The solution can be used standalone or alongside other HealthAssure applications such as OutcomesAssure and CQCAssure to provide a comprehensive quality governance and compliance solution. NICEAssure is flexible enough to adapt to your organisations structure.

With a constant flow of new Quality Standards and Guidelines, and with the importance placed on them by the CQC, Monitor and NHS Commissioning Boards, it is becoming increasingly important that you have the ability to not just track and monitor the changes but also implement them at recommendation level.

NICEAssure enables you to keep up with ongoing changes and monitor your compliance status without any significant administrative burden. In addition, the application provides powerful evidence-linking and assessment tools that allow you to build a quality-assessed library of evidence and assurance.

What our customers have said…

"Without having the NICE Quality Standards on NICEAssure we would have to consider how we were going to monitor our compliance. Gathering evidence for compliance would likely mean employing a person to complete this task, with NICEAssure we can do it within current resource."
