An outcomes database is essential for quality improvement and as a scorecard for measuring the performance of centers and surgeons after accreditation. SRC’s BOLD™ database accomplishes that and provides a necessary benefit to accredited facilities and medical professionals at no additional charge.
In 2007, SRC developed a proprietary, longitudinal patient outcomes database (known as “BOLD”) for the bariatric and metabolic surgery specialty. Today, it has been expanded to include multiple specialties and is regarded as the world’s largest and most comprehensive repository of surgical outcomes data.
SRC’s multispecialty BOLD database provides users with real-time access to individual patient information that guides clinical decisions. Providers can also obtain meaningful information through numerous reports that are based on information from their own individual practice. National summary reports enable participants to compare their individual outcomes to aggregate data and assess their approach to care.
