Update of ODEP ratings for Corin products
ODEP (Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel) is an independent panel of experts comprised mainly of leading UK surgeons, but also non-clinical experts with deep experience of the orthopaedic industry. The Panel was set up by National Health Purchasing and Supply Agency (PASA, subsequently replaced by NHS Supply Chain) as a response to National Institute for Health and Care Excellence (NICE) issuing guidance relating to Total hip replacement and resurfacing arthroplasty for end-stage arthritis of the hip (http://www.nice.org.uk/Guidance/TA304) - first publication April 2000, most recent publication in February 2014.
Implant manufacturers are invited to submit data regarding their orthopaedic implant products to ODEP. The Panel reviews this submission, and rate the strength of the evidence presented by the manufacturer, resulting in the award of an ODEP rating.
ODEP provides ratings for hip femoral stems, acetabular cups and knee replacements (at a knee construct level) and early 2017 commenced the process of benchmarking shoulders.
ODEP ratings explained
An ODEP Rating consists of a NUMBER and a LETTER, and a STAR (optional).
The number (3, 5, 7, 10, 13) represents the number of years for which the product’s performance has been evidenced. The letter represents the strength of evidence (data) presented by the manufacturer:
A = Strong evidence - generally higher numbers of patients (giving greater confidence in the results presented), with all patients being subject to follow-up (their outcomes recorded).
B = Acceptable evidence - smaller numbers of patients than the A rating (giving less confidence in the results than A), but sufficient data to demonstrate compliance
The star has been added to the rating system following revised guidelines from NICE in February 2014, A* represents very strong evidence above A and B.
Pre-entry – Products that are registered with ODEP for which there is insufficient data to evidence the three year entry benchmark have been listed as ‘pre-entry’, showing products currently undergoing clinical evaluation:
Pre-entry A* – Products are being evaluated through the Beyond Compliance initiative, a post market surveillance service supported by ODEP.
Pre-entry – Products not under Beyond Compliance, but which are registered with the National Joint Registry.
