Schedule 1

 

1           Title

 

             Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry (AOANJRR)

 

            Description:

 

This declaration applies to the Australian Orthopaedic Association National Joint Replacement Registry (AOANJRR).

 

The AOANJRR collects national data on all patients undergoing hip, knee, shoulder, elbow, wrist, ankle, hand, foot and spinal disc replacement and includes knee osteotomy procedures where this information is collected in hospitals undertaking these types of surgery.

 

The AOANJRR includes Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) which include responses to survey questions completed pre and post-surgery regarding outcomes of surgery. PROMs survey questions address the extent of the pain and disability prior to surgery, as well as the extent and timing of recovery and the presence of complications.

 

Data collected from clinical outcomes and PROMs is analysed to identify factors that result in improved standards in prostheses and surgical techniques as well as improving the benefit and cost effectiveness of those procedures as it relates to patient health status. PROMs data also assists in the design, delivery and funding of health services by aligning clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction with value and efficient, best practice care.

 

Annual and supplementary reports detailing the results of findings are published on the AOANJRR website. Patients, surgeons, hospitals and other stakeholders have access real-time data specific to them via secure online portals.

 

The AOANJRR is operated by the Australian Orthopaedic Association, and data management is contracted to the South Australian Health and Medical Research Institute.
