Our goal is to improve the quality and transparency of healthcare, worldwide. We believe that the incorporation of both clinical and patient-reported outcomes is crucial for achieving this goal. Besides offering transparency, the data collected using TiH's registry systems are frequently used for specific scientific research purposes. A few examples of studies based on these data are listed below.
