The purpose of the RICH database is to build a unified multi-center data repository for hypospadias cases. This will help explore short and long-term outcomes and will be regularly updated to answer newly emerging clinical questions. The database could potentially facilitate high-level evidence needed in hypospadias surgery, collaborative research among pediatric urologists and dynamically integrate new variables to answer emerging questions with secured data access policies.
