Get To Know LOGIC: The World’s Largest Intensive Care Benchmarking Platform
LOGIC (Linking of Global Intensive Care) is an independent consortium of databases of large ICU networks and national records of quality in intensive care medicine. LOGIC aims to connect ICUs to promote quality improvement through international benchmarking and collaborative research, assisting in data-driven decision-making.
The project brings together some of the largest national records databases in the world. Through a shared online platform, researchers and ICU networks have easy access to aggregated data on ICU admissions worldwide, and to information updated annually.
LOGIC’s international benchmarking is a powerful assessment tool in intensive care and quality improvement, where all users of participating networks can compare the performance of ICUs and thus, increase epidemiology and outcome knowledge.
Logic is currently present in more than 13 countries, such as Brazil, Uruguay, The Netherlands, India, Australia, France, among others, with more than 2,000 ICUs monitored, adding more than 7 million admissions to these units since the beginning of the project, which offers an international approach to ICU benchmarking in a pragmatic and valuable way for physicians and researchers.
