PROMs animation

The Dutch Arthroplasty Register (LROI) and Netherlands Orthopaedic Association (NOV) have collectively developed an explanatory animation about PROMs questionnaires. The animation ‘Uw ervaring telt’ (Your experience counts), explains how we use these data to improve orthopaedic care even further. We hope the animation provides more clarity to patients and motivates them to take the questionnaire, increasing the response. Orthopaedic departments may show the animation in, for example, their waiting room, on their website or before the questionnaire is taken.

Van Rens Foundation grants

In December 2017, the board of the Van Rens Foundation granted a financial contribution to three research projects. After assessment by external referees, the Scientific Advisory Board held a blind vote, determined a ranking and drafted an advice. This advice was presented to the boards of LROI and Van Rens Foundation. The following projects receive a grant and start their research in 2018:

  • What makes a best performing hospital in hip and knee replacement? Quality Improvement using joint registry data.
  • Effectiveness of dual mobility cups for preventing dislocation after primary total hip arthroplasty by a posterolateral approach and their cost-effectiveness compared to conventional cups in elderly patients.
  • Development of a preoperative prediction tool for pain and functional outcome after TKA using Dutch Arthroplasty register (LROI) data.

 

New privacy legislation

As of May 2018, the new legislation General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) stands. From that moment on, the same privacy legislation applies to all countries of the European Union. The LROI has taken the following precautions:

  • The existing participation agreement between LROI and hospitals has been revised. The participation agreement establishes rules for participation in the LROI and the use of data entrusted to the LROI.
  • LROI regulations and the data breach procedure have been revised and a Data Protection Impact Assessment (DPIA) has been conducted.
