Unpaid Annotation
The authors examine the feasibility of a national outcomes database that would be used by patients and providers to make more informed treatment decisions. They focus on issues surrounding two such databases: one for prostate cancer and one for surgical treatment for patients with osteoarthritis. The authors demonstrate the value, desirability, and technical feasibility of establishing national outcomes databases, but they conclude that their design and operation would require substantial resources.
