From a clinician’s perspective, most countries are beginning to demand a reflective practice and audit of outcomes required to underpin ongoing delivery of care for complex cases. With a minimal time requirement, our database will facilitate this by using PROMS to add to the initial operative details you would supply via our secure internet based system. Reports are easily generated anytime for use in audits and annual appraisals. Comparisons of differing treatment modalities or rehabilitation regimens will ultimately give another valuable piece of the jigsaw puzzle for trying to decide which option would be best for the next patient seeing you in clinic with a painful knee that requires intervention for cartilage repair or joint preservation. The data of each contributor can at any time be used by the contributor for personal evaluation and/or publication purposes. Any output combining data of multiple contributors will be reviewed by the steering committee members to ensure clinically relevant use is made of this unique database. It will not be possible for other clinicians or health funders to view or directly publish your patient data. Your input will help move surgery forward on a global stage and your contribution will be invaluable in helping the ICRS in its objective of promoting unbiased knowledge based best practice shaping our orthopaedic treatments of the future in a way not previously possible. Annual reports from this Registry are available online, outlining the performance of those treatments currently offered with real world outcomes from this unbiased trustworthy source.
