Evidence to improve outcomes for spinal patients with EUROSPINE registry from Northgate Public Services

Northgate Public Services has created a spinal registry for EUROSPINE, an organisation dedicated to improving the outcomes for patients with spinal and neck injuries. The Spine Tango registry, which was originally created in 2002, has switched to NPS technology to enable the tracking and monitoring of treatment, implants and surgical outcomes for patients on a global scale.

The information will help surgeons, hospitals and medical device manufacturers to more easily evaluate treatments to help secure the best outcomes for patients. Enhancing the Spine Tango registry aims to inform better treatments and techniques and to strengthen safety for patients receiving spinal surgery.

EUROSPINE has already collected data on spinal procedures from 19 countries and 72 medical centres over a period of 17 years. This data has been transferred to the NPS system, which will incorporate the existing intelligence with future data from across the world to provide vital evidence to improve the safety and success of spinal treatments and implant technology.
