Because our IONM physicians and audiologists are teamed with surgical teams in hundreds of thousands of cases across the country, SpecialtyCare is able to gather IONM data on techniques that typically aren’t known in remote medical facilities or by other providers with a more limited data set. This is why we’re an industry leader in intraoperative neuromonitoring data.
With the creation of SCOPE™, the SpecialtyCare Operative Procedural Registry, SpecialtyCare has the largest clinical database of its kind. Members of our medical office analyze case data and share the scientific findings to our clinical professionals so that the evidence-based trends and best practices can be shared with our partner surgeons and OR teams across the nation, which also brings innovation at the local level.
SpecialtyCare is on the cutting edge of IONM data and research. For example, we recently discovered there is a link between IONM and lower opioid use in recovery for spinal surgery. In a study of over 8,400 patients, cervical spine patients who had surgeries that included IONM were much less likely to be prescribed opiates within the year following surgery compared to patients that did not have IONM included in their surgery. This same study also determined there was a reduction on the number of readmissions post-surgery when IONM was used. This outcome was also confirmed by another study that was presented by the North American Spine Society (NASS) in 2016 that directly linked a lower number of post-operative injuries in patients that had neuromonitoring during their surgery.
