Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital will use data mining software from InVivoLink to collect clinical,financial and operational data directly from the operating room at the point of service. The pre-, intra- and post-operative data from orthopedic procedures will include details on joint implants, patient characteristics and physician utilization, and surgery outcomes. Using the platform, surgeons can gain access to reports that describe their patient flow, implant utilization and productivity, according to InVivoLink.

“With the continuing surge in joint replacement procedures, we must have actionable, evidence-based data to make the best decisions for our patients,” according to a statement from David Fisher, M.D., director of the Total Joint Center of Excellence at the hospital. Indianapolis-based Indiana Orthopaedic Hospital opened in 2005 and is operated by a provider system called OrthoIndy.
