Aug 21, 2023: New Arthroplasty Register profile added

The Swedish Arthroplasty Register (SAR) is a National Quality Register. It is a merger of the two oldest national arthroplasty registers, the Swedish Knee Arthroplasty Register and the Swedish Hip Arthroplasty Register, including knee replacements since 1975, hip replacements since 1979, hemiarthroplasties since 2005, and knee osteotomies since 2013. Reoperations, revisions and other procedures, related to the knee or hip are registered, as well as patient-reported outcome(s).

Aug 16, 2023: New US DB profile with ~300 Million records added!

Started in 2014, STATinMED’s licensed all-payer medical, and pharmacy claims dataset (STATinMED Real World Data Insights) provides insight into approximately 80% of the US healthcare system. These data are comparable with other all-payer claims repositories as they are sourced directly from claims clearinghouses, which are responsible to manage claims transactions between payers and providers, offering comprehensive coverage at the patient level across the US healthcare system.
