OBERD powers Regenerative Orthobiologics Registry to advance orthopaedics
Posted by Blake McWilliams on 2017-07-24
Universal Research Solutions (a.k.a. OBERD) has joined the Regenerative SportsCare Institute, Orthohealing Center and the University of California: Davis to create the Regenerative Orthobiologics Registry (ROR) powered by OBERD. ROR is the official registry of The Orthobiologic Institute (TOBI), and leverages OBERD’s healthcare data registry platform to advance evidence-based care to standardize regenerative orthobiologics procedures.
ROR’s commitment to empowering healthcare organizations to enhance the patient experience and benchmark performance aligns with OBERD’s expertise in musculoskeletal outcomes data collection. OBERD’s registries provide large data sets for benchmarking, research, and quality improvement initiatives. Its family of musculoskeletal registries has been established based on procedure, under specific platforms including: hip and knee; hand and wrist; foot and ankle; spine; and sports medicine.
"The Regenerative Orthobiologics Registry was created as a united initiative to improve data collection in the field of Orthobiologics,” said Kwadwo Boachie-Adjei, ROR’s Chief Technology Officer. “ROR offers valuable opportunities to learn, connect and contribute, and is designed to help practitioners and researchers navigate the changing landscape of orthobiologics in regenerative medicine by providing access to high quality data sets for benchmarking, research, and quality improvement."
ROR seeks to become the international registry for regenerative orthobiologics, beginning with capturing 90% of all regenerative medicine procedures in the U.S. within the next 5 years, and to leverage this comprehensive data to:
- Enhance orthobiologic quality of care
- Improve patient outcomes and safety
- Manage and reduce costs
- Advance orthobiologic science and bioengineering
"OBERD is delighted to support this initiative and provide the tools to collect essential data in this exciting medical field", said Andrew Clement, Chief Commercial Officer "The Registry will enable users to easily contribute to a national database that, through the use of OBERD's infinite range of filter combinations, can provide the raw data for innovative research in the future.”
