This month, James visited Midwest Orthopaedics at Rush (MOR). The MOR Physicians are among the most highly trained, experienced and respected orthopaedic surgeons in the Midwest. They are also the Team Physicians for the Chicago White Sox and Chicago Bulls. Each MOR Physician holds an academic appointment at Rush Medical College, is on staff at Rush University Medical Center, and is active in research and education.
While in Chicago, James spent time with Dr Greg Nicholson, a prominent shoulder & elbow surgeon at MOR. Dr Nicholson is involved in the design of an advanced shoulder replacement system and is a consultant to several orthopaedic companies. James and Greg took the opportunity to discuss the research programme at MOR.
MOR, along with other leading orthopaedic groups in North America, use an electronic data collection system that utilizes internet-based data entry collection tool to collect data for research. This is cutting-edge technology that utilizes smartphones, android tablets and/or home computers to safely and securely collect valuable patient data.
