The American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) is dedicated to improving orthopaedic care through collecting, analyzing, and benchmarking data from across the entire United States. We are a not-for-profit organization that brings quality improvement initiatives for total hip and knee replacements to hospitals, private practice groups, Ambulatory Surgery Centers, physicians, and the public. We also provide comprehensive orthopaedic knowledge and will potentially identify problems before they are discovered by public health agencies. The wide range of actionable information and reporting we provide helps improve patient care.
We believe that we are improving orthopaedic care through data – it’s in our tagline, our mission conveys this mantra, and our staff lives this through the daily interactions with the people who work at the hospitals, surgery centers, and private practice groups who give us their data. We collect, convert, and compile the data from participants into our own aggregate format, and produce numerous options for comparative reports individualized by institution, surgeon, procedure, implant, manufacturer, or other value-added criteria.
You can participate in the Registry for a small fee! Health systems, hospitals, surgical centers, practice groups, surgeons, and other participants can contribute data at almost no cost. In exchange, you will receive a Yearly Report of your data. Access to the RegistryInsights™ dashboards, patient-reported outcomes module, and unlimited reporting of your data requires a slightly more expensive subscription fee.
As an AJRR participating site, you have access to a variety of promotional resources – at no charge to you!
