Brief project description

The aim of this project is to make a registration system available to orthopedists that allows them to register information related to the placement of hip prostheses in order to create a “Belgian register of joint replacements”. The purpose of this register consists of: a) collecting data to enable professionals to examine the quality of care during hip prosthesis placement; b) providing information about the type of prostheses placed on a patient when he or she comes for a consultation, so that accessories can be appropriately ordered if necessary; and c) determining the lifespan of the prostheses.
