of Excellence

The results will provide an accounting of spine centers across the nation and uncover spine care program trends.

Titled the Spine COE (Centers of Excellence) Survey(TM), the study will track the types of spine conditions treated by dedicated spine programs and measure critical infrastructure requirements, including staffing, training, technology, facilities, surgical capabilities and community education campaigns. Each participating center will receive a customized report card that will help them understand how their services compare to others across the country.

"Spine injuries continue to be one of the leading reasons people seek out a physician's care," said Marcy T. Rogers, M.Ed., president and CEO of SpineMark. "We believe this survey is an important step in defining the core components that comprise pre-eminent spine centers of excellence relative to their services, infrastructure, ancillary programs and research activities."

Co-sponsored by SpineMark, a spine care services organization that partners with hospitals and physicians to develop spine centers, and NeuStrategy, a healthcare think tank focused on neuroscience, oncology and orthopedic COE development, survey results will be published in spring 2008 through an executive white paper and customized report cards for participating centers.
