Nova Scotia Health Authority Information Management & Technology invites you to attend our next Let's Talk Informatics presentation: Measuring Outcomes Following Hip/Knee Replacement Using Health Utilization Data.
Over 38,000 patients received hip or knee replacement in Nova Scotia between 2001-2014, yet our understanding of patient outcomes is inconclusive.
Dr. Michael Dunbar, the QEII Foundation Endowed Chair of Arthroplasty Outcomes; co-chair, Canadian Joint Replacement Registry; Research Chair, The Knee Society; and Director of Research, Canadian Arthroplasty Society; and his Orthopaedic Research team at the Halifax Infirmary have explored Nova Scotia's existing health utilization data sources, to compile a comprehensive dataset of patient factors and health outcomes.
Through the application of statistical techniques their group has measured outcomes overtime and across facilities, and uncovered compelling associations between risk factors and patient outcomes. Their analyses offer an example of how data can be linked to create rich population-based datasets, and be applied to inform clinicians and policy-makers with respect to best practices.
Please join us for this informative discussion.
