At a Glance-What is the Registry?
The NEBH Registry is a program to provide our patients and surgeons with valuable information to assist in making long-term decisions regarding orthopedic surgery.
Similar registry programs have been started all over the country to track the effectiveness of certain surgical procedures and implants. Along with clinical information collected at the time of surgery such as types of implants we use; the patient perspective is a crucial piece to understanding how we can further ensure safety and improve the care we deliver at New England Baptist Hospital.
The NEBH Registry allows participating patients the opportunity to report their health status relating to:
- Quality of Life
- Joint function and pain
- Activity levels
- Long term surgical success
Science never stands still. At the Baptist, research is a major effort, where we seek new and better methods of care to enable our patients to succeed. As our mission is so focused on patient outcomes, patients who are active and involved in their care are truly the driving force which shapes the future of healthcare and brings life to everything we do here. We appreciate your interest, and would be happy to help you understand the Registry and your potential involvement. Our program allows you to participate via online surveys, which can be completed in the comfort and privacy of your home or office.
I want to participate!
The NEBH Orthopedic Registry office is a service-oriented team focused on providing support to our participating surgeons and patients. If your surgeon is participating in the NEBH Registry, you will be contacted by a member of our team. You will be asked for an email address in order for us to send instructions on how to log into our secure, online portal. You will also be asked during the survey if you would like to anonymously submit your data for future research. The Registry is voluntary, and we will always respect your decision. No identifiable information we collect will ever be distributed or sold to 3rd parties. Our office provides courtesy calls throughout the follow-up process to remind you of when surveys are available to you. If you have internet access, but are not comfortable using it or a computer, our office provides over-the-phone guidance to our patients. As we do not have a paper version of the survey available, those who do not have access to the internet are unable to participate. If you have any other questions related to the NEBH Orthopedic Registry please contact us at 617-754-6712.
