BOLD: Bariatric Outcomes Longitudinal Database

The Bariatric Outcomes Longitudinal Database™ (BOLD™) is a system which allows a hospital to contribute detailed clinical data collected from patient medical records according to common definitions in order to identify opportunities for improvement. For hospitals that wish to be certified as a Bariatric Center of Excellence, participation is required. Northwestern Memorial Hospital is a Bariatric Center of Excellence.

“Surgical Review Corporation expects more than 100,000 patients to be entered annually into its Bariatric Outcomes Longitudinal Database™ (BOLD™), thus making it the largest bariatric surgery database registry in the world. Each participant in the BSCOE [Bariatric Surgery Centers of Excellence] program is required to submit detailed patient information on every patient that has bariatric surgery.”
