Data updates

The service is regularly updated and data are available for the following time periods:  

 

  • Volumetric data - April 2003 to March 2019 (see comment below)
  • Funnel plot data - April 2003 to September 2018

 

Please be aware that not all of the reports within Clinician Feedback have been updated during this data refresh.  The significant number of changes made to the data set when moving from MDSv6 to MDSv7 have had a significant knock-on effect to the reporting services such that it has not been possible to implement all the changes in the time available.

 

However, changes have been made to the following reports:

  • Primary Procedure Report - Hips and Knees
  • Revision Procedure Report - Hips and Knees
  • Revision Rate Report - Hips and Knees

 

All the funnel plots showing the Standardised Revision Ratio (SRR) and Standardised Mortality Ratio (SMR) will be updated as normal.

 

Please accept our apologies for not being provided with a complete update: if you have any queries or require access to any of your personal data, please contact the NJR Service Desk using the contact details on the NJR website (www.njrcentre.org.uk)

 

NJR Clinician Feedback is a resource available to all orthopaedic surgeons in England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Isle of Man who undertake hip, knee, ankle, elbow and shoulder replacement surgery and are registered with the National Joint Registry (NJR). It is delivered by the Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership as part of the NJR programme.

 

NJR Clinician Feedback is designed to provide orthopaedic surgeons with data and information relating to the care that has been delivered both by them and on their behalf and it enables an analysis of data within the wider context of hospital, sector (NHS and Independent Healthcare), and national benchmarks. It also provides a means of plotting data within a statistical control chart (funnel plot) enabling surgeons to view trends apparent from the data held by the NJR.

 

 

 

Recent Changes and Additions:

 

New functionality has been implemented in NJR Clinician Feedback with the latest (April 2019) refresh. This functionality enables ‘push notifications’ to consultants, alerting them through email to the presence of newly linked events for their patients within the NJR data and to facilitate the checking and validation of this data. For further information please go to http://www.njrcentre.org.uk/njrcentre/Surgeons

In order to benefit from this new functionality please log in and enter your current email address. If you have already entered an email address, please ensure that it is up-to-date.

 

New Price benchmarking Embed reports - a new implant monitoring report is now available for Consultants in Charge. The report can be found under the Implant Pricing menu option in the surgeon level folder. These reports are run quarterly. This quarter the report is being released as a draft version to allow users to provide feedback on the content and format of the report. Feedback received by the end of September will be reviewed by the NJR and, if accepted, may be incorporated into the formal release version of the report in November 2018. Please send your feedback to enquiries@njrcentre.org.uk.

 

90 day standardised mortality ratio funnel plots (Hips and Knees) for Consultants in Charge - 90 day SMR, based on the most recent five years of data, now available under Outcomes/Outcome Reports menu option. 

 

 

Annual Clinical Reports, Surgeon Primary Procedure Report and Surgeon Revision Procedure Report now available to Lead Surgeons.

 

 

Change to Surgeon Primary Procedure, Surgeon Revision Procedure and Revision Rate reports - following a change in the protected status of the Local Patient ID this field will now display "Consent Declined" for procedures where consent = No.

 

Surgeon Primary Procedure Report:   enables download of all primary procedures and the endpoint for each, i.e. viable, revised, or patient deceased.  It can be filtered by joint type, procedure type, patient case-mix, endpoint, and time. It can be viewed either on screen or downloaded as a pdf file or spreadsheet.  The spreadsheet provides the most detailed data including, for example, details of what was revised, the indications for revision, and (for all procedures) the time from the primary procedure to the first change in endpoint. Where a procedure has been revised by another surgeon, the surgeon’s name and hospital are now included in the report.

Note:  the report does not necessarily provide the 'current' end state but the first change since the primary took place.  For example, if a patient has died after the revision of a primary procedure, the end state will be reported as 'Revised', not 'Deceased'.
 
 

Surgeon Revision Procedure Report:   enables download of all first revision procedures and the endpoint for each, i.e. viable, revised, or patient deceased.  The report can be filtered by joint type, procedure type, patient case mix, endpoint, and time. It can be viewed either on screen or downloaded as a pdf file or spreadsheet.  Where a procedure has been revised by another surgeon, the surgeon’s name and hospital are now included in the report.

 

Note: the report does not necessarily provide the 'current' end state but the first change since the revision took place.  For example, if a patient has died after the second revision procedure, the end state will be reported as 'Revised', not 'Deceased'.

 

If you have any queries about the reports or wish to make suggestions about how they could be improved, please do not hesitate to contact either the NJR Centre directly or your local Regional Coordinator.
