Spine Registry

You care... About patients and about quality healthcare. You want to give your patients the best possible spine treatment. But how do you objectively measure and demonstrate the quality of the care you provide?

The NASS Spine Registry is a diagnosis-based clinical data registry that tracks patient care and outcomes. Using a web-based platform, collect and analyze your care data alone and as compared to other spine care providers. The multidisciplinary, longitudinal design captures different types of care and resulting outcomes. It also allows NASS to measure comparative effectiveness of treatments, identify best practices and close gaps in the medical evidence for spine.


  • Any spine care physician or provider treating patients in the U.S. can use the registry—regardless of specialty or medical/surgical orientation. You do not have to be a NASS member
  • Affordable for all practice types and sizes—from the largest health systems to the solo practitioner
  • Collect data on your care and outcomes for quality improvement
  • Own your data
  • Web-based—No need to purchase software
  • Confidential feedback on your care and outcomes alone and benchmarked against the de-identified aggregate pool
  • Confidential―Data is de-identified at point of entry. No personal health information reaches NASS or its vendor. NASS sees only the de-identified, aggregate data pool
  • Centralized IRB—No need to obtain your own lRB unless required by your local institution
  • The cervical and thoracic spine are not included in registry at this time
