American Surgery Center Association 2018 Annual Meeting

ASCA's 2018 Annual Meeting is from April 11-14 in Boston. Attendees can stop by the AJRR booth to see how Registry participation, and the data that will be compiled, will be used to validate current efforts to reduce health care costs by moving total joint replacements to Medicare’s ASC-payable list and expanding the number of private payers that will reimburse surgery centers for these procedures.

Join the AJRR User Group Network Now!

With more than 1,000 participating institutions (hospitals, health systems, surgery centers, and private practice groups), the AJRR created the AJRR User Group Network (Unet). This network was created to provide all of AJRR’s users and participants the opportunity to share ideas and interact with each other about the collection of hip and knee arthroplasty procedures data in the United States through a National Registry.

We (the AJRR) strive to create an environment within the orthopaedic community that fosters conversation about best practices and learning ways to improve hip and knee replacement Registry implementation and processes within their own institution.

Members of this network will have the opportunity to participate in regular conference calls and webinars, contact other Registry users for information, and help shape the orthopaedic Registry community through their insights and contributions.

Another benefit of being an AJRR participant is access to the network of other Registry users. To activate engagement and communication with other users, register by creating an AJRR Unet Forum account below. Once inside the Forum, you can ask questions of other users, provide insight, share best practices, and learn more on how to utilize your Registry participation to the fullest. You will also be added to our Unet e-mail distribution list.
