Since January 2019 the Department of Endocrine Surgery at Henry Dunant Hospital Center is a Partner Clinic of Eurocrine®.
Our Department of Endocrine Surgery is the first Partner Clinic in the Registry from Greece.
EUROCRINE is an endocrine surgical quality registry which aims to decrease morbidity and mortality in endocrine tumours, with a special focus on rare tumours, by means of an international database based in the EU.
Specifically, the registry collect data to analyse diagnostic processes, indication for surgical treatment, type of surgical procedures, use of resources and outcomes. Data for quality control is analysed at the local hospital level, and on an aggregate national and supranational level. Data is also used for clinical research and to identify and disseminate best clinical practice.
Collection and analysis of data aims to raise clinical standards of care and reduce differences in practice between participating clinics and countries, and thereby diminish morbidity and mortality.
