Indian Arthroscopy Society (IAS) announced the launch of the Indian Ligament Registry (ILR). ILR is an initiative of the Indian Arthroscopy Society which is the official national organisation for arthroscopy surgeons. The registry is a pan-India, surgeon-initiated clinical database, created with the purpose of monitoring and improving the quality of ligament surgeries in India. Through the Registry, IAS aims to support improved clinical outcomes, patient safety and academic research.
ILR is capable of capturing all vital patient data before, during and after the surgery using a standardised 'click & go' form in a secured Internet portal. ILR has been developed by leading experts in the field and validated by eminent surgeons throughout the country. ILR has been technically commissioned and supported by NEC Software Solutions (NEC), a UK headquartered company that operates some of the world's biggest healthcare registries.
ILR has been tested with a pilot programme involving more than 100 surgeons and is now being rolled out across India. This is expected to benefit many thousands of surgeons who undertake ligament surgeries and millions of future patients.
