Validate your Q1 (Apr-Jun) data before Thursday 27 August to receive your Q1 NCAA Report!

Please keep us informed of any difficulties you may be having and we will support you.


Where possible, please try to validate your Q1 (Apr-Jun) data before Thursday, 27 August

What do you need to do?

  • Make sure that all team visit records for Q1 (Apr-Jun) have been entered
  • Enter your denominator data once the above is complete
  • Validate all data that is in a status of ‘In validation’ (orange flag)
  • Review all data that is in the status of ‘Pending outcome’ (green flag) for Q1 (Apr-Jun) and enter outcome data for any patients no longer in your hospital.

Remember you may be required to re-validate your data if further explanation/amendment is needed.

Keep checking your data until all team visit records are in a status of ‘validated’ (dark blue flag) or ‘pending outcome’ (green flag).

Unsure which status your data are in and what to do next?

We endeavour to publish reports within 12 weeks of the end of the reporting quarter, where the validation deadline is met.

Reports are uploaded via File Exchange and users with access will receive an email when their report is published.
