The NPA Welcomes the University of Illinois to the QOD Program

NeuroPoint Alliance welcomes the University of Illinois Hospital and Health Sciences in Chicago (UIC) to the Quality Outcomes Database (QOD) Neurovascular program. Led by surgeon champion Ali Alaraj, MD, UIC joins over 100 existing QOD participating centers, several of which have been submitting data since 2012. As of December 2018, there are over 110,000 patients enrolled in the QOD Spine registry and over 5,000 patients enrolled in the QOD Neurovascular registry.

The QOD serves as the nationwide prospective clinical registry for neurosurgical procedures and practice patterns. Its primary purpose is to track the quality of surgical care for the most common neurosurgical and spine procedures as well as provide individual surgeons, practice groups, hospitals and health systems with an immediate infrastructure for analyzing and reporting the quality of their neurosurgical care.
