This session will describe the demographics and distribution of treatments related to spine care from the first multi-specialty sponsored spine patient registry. Learnings about data being captured, standards utilized in treating spine populations and gaps in care that need to be addressed will be highlighted in this session. Further, a discussion on different methods of implementation and potential obstacles/considerations in different clinic settings (academic, small private practice, larger multi-specialty, etc.) will be explored.

Learning Objectives

  • Better understand the use of registries in clinical care.
  • Understand the stratification of different presentations of spine problems in physiatry and neurosurgery.
  • Discuss issues related to data capture and sharing in a National registry.
