MCAP final file high 2

The goal of the MCAP Criteria is not to deny care, but to put people at the right level of care given their individual care needs. MCAP uncovers the blockages to patient flow and the reasons behind them, empowering clinical teams to make the data-driven decisions necessary to fix these issues, improve quality of patient care and re-allocate resources by identifying and reducing inappropriate admissions and delayed discharges.

The Oak Group is happy to license MCAP for concurrent use by healthcare organisations. Because the tool is implemented primarily as browser-based software, it requires minimal setup and support from our clients’ in-house IT teams. The license is trust-wide, allowing unlimited use in any project or initiative across the trust. We also provide training in how to use to tool for our client’s in-house staff, enabling efficient and independent use.

An MCAP subscription can enable quick, efficient, on-going data collection and analysis for a wide range of healthcare organisations, allowing you to stay ahead of changes in service usage and manage patient care in the most efficient and effective manner possible.


Our dedicated team of nurses can conduct reviews of patient care over a number of days on a case-by-case basis using the MCAP tool, identifying which patients could have been treated effectively at a different level of care and why patient care was not delivered in the right setting. Analysing performance allows us to help you improve performance. The audit process is that simple.
At the end of the audit process, we provide the client with an analysis of the data, presented in a clear and easy-to-understand fashion, along with recommendations on how to reduce non-qualified admissions and continuing care days, increasing the efficiency and effectiveness of patient care.
