NJR referenced within the independent review of integrated care systems report
We are immensely proud to see such significant reference to the impactful and valuable work of the NJR addressed within the independent review of integrated care systems report, authored by Rt Hon Patricia Hewitt and published today.
The role of data for system accountability (Reference: paragraph 3.129)
“Transparent, accurate and accessible information enables patients and the public to know whether the services they are receiving are high quality, efficient and effective. Equally, clear and effective engagement with the public builds confidence that individuals’ data contributions are creating real benefits for themselves and wider society, thus underpinning further improvement and transformation.
Transparent data is a powerful incentive and enabler of improvement, reflected for instance in the work of the National Joint Registry (NJR) over the last decade. Using cutting-edge data analytics, and as a globally recognised exemplar of an implantable medical devices’ registry, the NJR has already helped to improve patient outcomes, inform clinical practice, ensure the quality and value of joint replacement surgery and support orthopaedic research.”
