NATIONAL OUTCOMES REGISTRY SYSTEM (NORS): Register to submit data
The National Outcomes Registry (NORS) will provide the most comprehensive picture of OPAT service provision in the UK. NORS correlates reports and data from all submitting OPAT services.
It will offer an overview of the number of OPAT centres in the UK and Ireland, models of service, number of patients admitted to OPAT centres, treatments days saved and other vital audit data such as most commonly used agents and proportion of successful outcomes.
All OPAT Centres are encouraged to enter data on a quarterly basis so that a national picture can be established, but centres can also have a benchmark regarding OPAT services and outcomes.
The NORS site will go live in June 2015, in the meantime, please register your interest at the following link http://opatregistry.com/
