Registry has been commissioned by the British Association of Spine Surgeons (BASS) to give you, our members, the opportunity to collect data on your patients prospectively.
registry is established and controlled by surgeons.
is inevitable that some form of central data registry will be made compulsory in the future, due to either pressure from Commissioners or revalidation. We encourage all of our professional
colleagues to use the BSR as part of their PROMs collection and good practice.
How does it work?
The registry is web-based so as to be easily
accessible with minimal infrastructure input needed at hospital level.
The registry enables you as a Spinal Consultant to
collect the amount of data that suits you and your working practice.
On adding a patient to the registry, you can choose
to add diagnosis, indications, complexity factors and your procedure information in just a few minutes. The system requests all the appropriate PROMs information at the right times from your
patients via email and a secure web based patient portal.
How do I report on my data?
You can view your patient data in real time, giving
you an accurate and representative picture of your individual patient progress, as well as your patient cohort as a whole.
As a registry user, you will be able to run off
reports of your patient data at any time.
This report can include any information you have
entered into the registry; diagnosis, surgical procedures, complications and PROMs.
These reports can be used for research, audit and
your own revalidation.
Your data is completely secure and will not be
shared with other surgeons.
This Registry enables the collection of personal data
regarding Patients undergoing spinal treatment.

clinical and administration team in your data collection, although many surgeons manage it themselves due to the minimal administration time needed.
