Helping Patients Improve Spinal Health Care!

Welcome to SpineOnlineTM, a web-based research tool created to document outcomes of spinal therapies. SpineOnline brings together patients and the nation’s top spinal practitioners to identify what works best in treating spinal disorders. This secure national database provides a simple and intuitive user experience for providers and patients from any online access point. SpineOnline produces outcomes research by integrating health care providers’ clinical evaluation and patients’ self-reported outcomes to improve spinal health care across America. The design of this research tool is focused on accumulating patient and provider input so as to most rapidly collect essential data to advance spinal health care.

Research Information

Now more than ever, quality data is needed to preserve access to appropriate spinal health care and to drive improvement. The Spinal Research Foundation has developed SpineOnline as a platform to lead the efforts to create collaborative research across the country. This will enable the Foundation's research partners to much more rapidly produce sufficient numbers and quality outcomes research to support the effectiveness of spinal interventions. Without this data, patients are going to continue losing access to life-improving therapies.
