Our ultimate goal is to publish, through this website and in peer-reviewed journals, analyses of comparative patient outcomes, complications, and revision rates to inform the scientific, lay, and policy communities.
Surgeons and scientists are invited to propose new and ancillary analyses of the registry data and biorepository materials to promote academic-private partnerships to expand the research scope.
We will make every effort to foster scientific collaboration and ensure that a wide range of potential investigators are knowledgeable about current FORCE-TJR data and research, and have the opportunity to participate in the development of new publications, presentations and/or ancillary study proposals.
We propose to transform this network of orthopedic offices and hospitals into a research laboratory that will serve as a national model for comparative effectiveness research.
