Can any surgeon participate in SpineTRACK?
Yes. However, there are eligibility requirements that must be met in order to participate. They include current or prior demonstration of data collection capability, such as employing a designated staff member to oversee the data collection effort, participation in research initiatives, and/or publication history.
How much does it cost to participate?
NuVasive underwrites the costs of the registry platform with respect to software licensing as well as database programming, management, and implementation (i.e., there are no added fees charged by NuVasive to the participating site); while the participating site must provide the onsite resources (staff) for successful utilization.
Is this tool available globally?
Yes, eligible sites worldwide may participate; however, there are country-specific requirements that will require additional evaluation.
What is the process to join SpineTRACK?
Following a formal vetting process by NuVasive Clinical Resources to assess for eligibility, that team will work with your practice to obtain the proper approvals (ethics/quality committee, as required). A Participation Agreement and Business Associate Agreement will also need to be put in place before access to the registry platform can be granted.
