CERortho is currently developing observational databases to unobtrusively follow MSK patients and athletes throughout their health care experience and document factors affecting treatment choices, outcomes, as well as other factors important to them. In addition, we are developing cutting edge approaches to analyze these data.

CERorthopaedic Patient Data Repository

Designed to collect longitudinal information on patients with similar MSK conditions from initial complaint to return to work or play. Data includes: clinical characteristics, treatments, and outcomes. In addition, the patient will be actively engaged in the collection process to garner patient reported outcomes and preferences that are not available in existing repositories today.
