The Dutch Institute for Clinical Auditing, or DICA, is a payer-funded, not-for-profit organisation in the Netherlands that facilitates the development and maintenance of national outcomes registries around medical conditions. Since 2009 DICA has established over 19 registries using a model that benefits clinicians, payers, and — most importantly — patients. This case study describes how DICA was formed and its role in fostering value across the Dutch health care system, including the business case for payer investment in outcomes registries, benefits to stakeholders and positive early results in patient outcomes improvement and cost reduction.
