Why did your team decide to start collecting electronic outcome data?
“Monitoring patient outcomes following spine surgery is considered standard practice and allows the outcomes to be compared and benchmarked to identify variation in outcomes. An electronic platform makes it simpler to collect, store, process and analyse these outcomes and facilitates the automation of this process.”
Why did you choose Amplitude as your service provider?
“Amplitude provides a tried and tested platform that has demonstrated the capability to collect, store, manage, process and secure data collected in relation to spine surgeries. Utilising Amplitude allows us to assess outcomes against the well-established British Spine Registry, facilitating benchmarking to international providers.
Furthermore, Amplitude has been custom made/tailored for collecting clinical data and outcomes, incorporates validated and licenced patient reported outcome measures and supports automated and secure data collection, storage, management, and processing.”
