Hip arthroplasty represents a large proportion of orthopaedic activity, constantly increasing. Automating monitoring from clinical data warehouses is an opportunity to dynamically monitor devices and patient outcomes allowing improve clinical practices. Our objective was to assess quantitative and qualitative concordance between claim data and device supply data in order to create an e-cohort of patients undergoing a hip replacement.
We performed a single-centre cohort pilot study, from one clinical data warehouse of a French University Hospital, from January 1, 2010 to December 31, 2019. We included all adult patients undergoing a hip arthroplasty, and with at least one hip medical device provided. Patients younger than 18 years or opposed to the reuse of their data were excluded from the analysis. Our primary outcome was the percentage of hospital stays with both hip arthroplasty and hip device provided. The patient and stay characteristics assessed in this study were: age, sex, length of stay, surgery procedure (replacement, repositioning, change, or reconstruction), medical motif for surgery (osteoarthritis, fracture, cancer, infection, or other) and device provided (head, stem, shell, or other).
We found 3,380 stays and 2,934 patients, 96.4% of them had both a hip surgery procedure and a hip device provided. These data from different sources are close enough to be integrated in a common clinical data warehouse.
