NJR Annual Report 2022
We’re delighted to announce that our 19th NJR Annual Report has now been published. This is the formal public report of the registry for the period of 1st April 2021 to 31st March 2022. Registry data for the surgery that has taken place this past year, have again been analysed by expert statisticians and the results published with the continued aim of enhancing safety and improving clinical outcomes for the benefit of patients and the whole orthopaedic health care sector. The report summarises our work and shares the analysis of data for the past year, visually in tables and graphs, for procedures across each of the joints, as well as implant and hospital outcomes and is downloadable from the NJR’s dedicated Annual Report website: https://reports.njrcentre.org.uk.
The NJR Annual Report is comprised of four parts. Parts One (annual progress), Two (clinical activity data), Part Three (the analyses of outcomes after surgery)and the enhanced Part Four (implant and trust; local health board and unit-level outcomes). Along with the progress of the work of the NJR and our sub-committees, all the report parts can be found online.
Our report this year has a special feature on the considerations around how PROMs outcome data might be incorporated with NJR routine data to include the very valuable patients perspective on the success of joint replacement outcomes. The report also includes some short excerpts which showcase the value of our data in contributing to orthopaedic research activity.
Our data collection and analysis work provides the evidence to drive the continuous development and implementation of measures, to ensure implant safety and the enhancement of patient outcomes is always top of the agenda alongside a focus on reduced revision rates year-on-year, as well as improvements in standards in quality of service, whilst also addressing overall value in joint replacement surgery.
We are very grateful to all patients who, having undergone a joint replacement, have provided their data to the NJR over the years, which has enabled us to collect and develop such a rich and valuable data source, now of over 3.7 million procedure records. We are also appreciative of the work of data management staff in all participating hospitals, who willingly engage in our stringent data quality award programmes to ensure our information is of high quality, accurate and as complete as is possible.
