The Orthopaedic Data Evaluation Panel (ODEP) was set up to implement NICE guidance on primary hip implants in 2002 and hip resurfacing in 2004. The Panel provides on-going assessment of hip implants to benchmark both hip femoral stems and hip acetabular cups against the NICE guidance, providing a benchmark rating for implant survivorship and data submission quality. In 2014 the process was extended to include Total knee prostheses. In 2016, a pilot studying the feasibility of using ODEP for shoulder implants commenced, initially looking at Reverse Shoulder arthroplasty. The ODEP rating is now a commonly used benchmark used not only in the UK but globally.


The panel members accept data submissions bi-annually - for hips in spring and autumn, for knees in winter and summer, with regular meeting arranged to discuss improvements and review improvements to the process scheduled throughout the year. The first shoulder submissions review will take place in April 2017.
