Health registries that improve patient outcomes.

We operate the National Joint Registry (NJR) on behalf of Healthcare Quality Improvement Programme (HQIP).  The largest register of its kind in the world, it holds the records of over 2 million joint replacement procedures, with 200,000 new records added each year, so that the performance of devices, hospitals and surgeons can be monitored and improved. 

Health informatics

We are specialists in healthcare informatics, and provide added value to the NJR through statistical and analytical services. We provide deep insight into factors affecting patient outcomes, the performance of implants and the early detection of potential outliers. The NJR has been instrumental in raising quality of care and improvements in outcomes from joint replacement surgery, which is amongst the safest surgical procedures undertaken.

Extending our work with the NJR, we also support the Beyond Compliance initiative, advocating the safe and stepwise introduction of new or modified implants, and the work of ODEP, an independent rating system to assess the follow up data available for orthopaedic implants against the NICE benchmark.

As well as our extensive work in orthopaedics, we also operate the national Rheumatology audit and the National Vascular Registry (NVR).

For two decades we have managed a variety of large healthcare data sets on behalf of the NHS and private organisations. From delivering the hospital episode statistics (HES) data collection, to providing national collection of patient reported outcome measures (PROMs), we deliver high quality, secure services providing our customers with insight into national healthcare delivery.
