Patient Participation Information
Doctors choose to participate in a NeuroPoint Alliance (NPA) registry, because they are committed to the highest quality medicine and patient care.
What does this mean for you and your treatment?
Participating doctors and hospitals have staff who record critical variables on patient outcomes, including information on treatment. At different intervals throughout treatment, staff record and archive the progress and timeline. The data is then submitted to a nationwide database for analysis and comparison to the results of other patients through national benchmarks. The QOD is one of the most robust and powerful tools available to physicians and helps determine the best treatments for patients.
How does my data help other patients?
As part of QOD, doctors receive actual and actionable data that can be used to guide patient management decisions, ensuring that patients receive the most valid and evidence-based care available.
Many physicians make decisions based upon their best estimate of what the potential risks and outcomes of a given surgery may be or they refer to data from highly selected trials, which may or may not be specifically relevant to a particular situation. QOD physicians are able to review the actual risks and outcomes of procedures. You can be assured that your participating physician has the most up-to-date and valid data available.
