Arthritis At Home Episode 166 – Creation of a comprehensive large-scale total joint arthroplasty database to enable advanced predictive analytics
In this episode of Arthritis At Home, Ellen Wang, Programs Coordinator, Arthritis Consumer Experts, speaks to Drs. Cari Whyne and Johnathan Lex. Dr. Whyne is a senior scientist at Sunnybrook Research Institute and Dr. Lex is a resident of orthopaedic surgery and a member of Surgeon Scientist Training Program at the University of Toronto. Recently, Dr. Whyne’s team was successful in obtaining the Ignite Grant from the Arthritis Society for the project titled “Creation of a comprehensive large-scale total joint arthroplasty database linking institutional and population-level sources to enable advanced predictive analytics”. They have a conversation about how they are combining a database on outcomes and population data to create prediction models. These prediction models have the ability to improve the allocation or time and resources to improve the equity of joint replacement surgery. The research team thanks the Arthritis Society for the grant and patients for their contributions.
