CJRR 2012–2013 Quick Stats now available
The Canadian Joint Replacement Registry (CJRR) at the Canadian Institute for Health Information (CIHI) is pleased to announce that Hip and Knee Replacements in Canada: 2012–2013 Quick Stats is now available.
Hip and Knee Replacements in Canada: 2012–2013 Quick Stats draws on data from three data holdings at CIHI: the Discharge Abstract Database (DAD), the Hospital Morbidity Database (HMDB) and CJRR.
The DAD and HMDB capture administrative, clinical and demographic information on hospital discharges. CJRR is a pan-Canadian registry that collects additional clinical, surgical and prosthesis information on hip and knee replacement procedures from mandated provinces and participating surgeons.
To learn more about hospitalizations for hip and knee replacements performed in acute care hospitals in Canada, access CIHI’s Quick Stats. This report presents the number of hospitalizations by jurisdiction, age-standardized rates and coverage in CJRR for procedures performed in 2012–2013, including information about the type of procedure, diagnosis and reasons for revision.
