What is VOTOR?

The Victorian Orthopaedic Trauma Outcomes Registry (VOTOR) is a clinical quality registry and a collaboration of hospital and academic institutions.

The registry is a comprehensive database of orthopaedic injuries, treatment, complications and outcomes based on admissions to The Alfred, Royal Melbourne, University Hospital Geelong and Northern Hospitals.


What is a Clinical Registry?

The primary purpose of a clinical registry is to monitor patient outcomes and report on the quality of the care provided for a specific medical disease or condition, or for an area or specialisation of health service provision.

What does VOTOR do?

The overarching aims are to:

  • Monitor orthopaedic injury management, treatment approaches and outcomes;
  • Identify variations in orthopaedic clinical practice;
  • Identify specific injuries, procedures and patient populations at risk of poor outcomes;
  • Monitor the use of orthopaedic implants and their outcomes.
