Beyond Compliance is a service to support the safe and stepwise introduction of new or modified implants such as joint replacements.
An independent panel of experts, known as the Beyond Compliance Advisory Group, work with the implant manufacturer to assess the relative risk of any new product, and the rate at which it should be introduced to the market. The service collects data about patients who receive these implants and about their recovery following surgery. This data is made available to surgeons using the implant, to the manufacturer, and to independent assessors from the Beyond Compliance Advisory Group, to provide real-time monitoring of the implant’s performance.
Beyond Compliance is an optional service available to manufacturers of hip and knee joint implants. The service may be extended in the future to include other types of implant.
