Multicreterion selection

ONDB allows users to assess results according to every conceivable criterion and in every conceivable combination.

Data importation

ONDB allows data’s importation from any type of existing database program. However this will need special study from our team

Multicentric studies

ONDB can be used for a multicentric study as it has the technical tools to merge large data collections from different surgeons and institutions ensuring patient confidentiality.

Data Retrieval

The software provides easy and reliable data retrieval when using the powerful search tools. Scientific publications: ONDB provides the tools that enable users to produce complete and accurate scientific publications of their personal series.

ONDB Statistics

Statistical analysis tool

Numerous categories of data are already pre-included in ONDB such as patients age and gender; type of middle ear pathology; clinical examination; surgical presentations; type of ossicular reconstruction and position of the reconstruction according to the status of the ossicular chain, audiometric records etc. It contains sufficient data to allow sophisticated statistical analysis.

Modifications of the initial program can easily be made by users according to the additional types of data that may be desired in order to develop this software for other sub-specialities (rhinology, laryngology) or specialities. This is demonstrated in the video user guide.

ONDB Results

Designed either for prospective or retrospective study

ONDB is the tool you need for quality results assesment in medical and surgical practice. Promoting high quality results in public health service remains a very important goal for all health care practitioners.
