The National Ophthalmology Database (NOD) was established under the auspices of the Royal College of Ophthalmologists (RCOphth) in 2010 to collate pseudonymised data collected as a by-product of routine clinical care using electronic medical record (EMR) systems for the purposes of national audit, research and establishing meaningful measures for revalidation.


PROMs Feasibility Study Report February 2020

The Healthcare Quality Improvement Partnership (HQIP) commissioned the NOD to undertake a pilot study to assess the feasibility of possible future inclusion of Patient Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) in the NOD Cataract Audit as a patient focused outcome. The PROMs feasibility study report was published on 13 February 2020 and available for download here.
