The benefits of the registry for our stakeholders
As part of our 20th anniversary activity, we have conducted a programme of work which aims to profile the successes and benefits that the NJR has realised over the past two decades. This work examines the value of the important tools and reporting systems that the NJR has developed over the years and makes available to a range of our stakeholders, as well as the benefits to wider society of a comprehensive national registry.
We take a broader view of the improvements in joint replacement surgery practice over the years and assess the wider benefits of our work to hospitals, surgeons, patients, health service regulators, manufacturers and the policymakers that have been associated with the development of the NJR’s activities over the years.
The work is being published in a series of articles with the Journal of Trauma and orthopaedics.
The first article on the benefits of the registry for patients and hospitals can be found here: Benefits of the registry for patients.
The second article just published, on the benefits of the registry for surgeons and implant suppliers, can be found here.
