SwissRDL - Medical Registries and Data Linkage

Gesundheitsdirektion Zürich

From 1 July 2019, the indication and outcome quality for patients with hip and knee prostheses must be measured in the listed hospitals on behalf of the Health Directorate of the Canton of Zurich (GD ZH).
Every patient who receives an elective and primary artificial hip or knee joint is asked by the hospital about their current state of health before and one year after the operation using a standardised form.
The survey is conducted by SwissRDL on the existing and nationally obligatory register for hip and knee implantations "SIRIS".
