AJRR exhibited at the NAON 38th Annual Congress at Booth 508. We provided hard copies of our 2017 Annual Report, jump drives with information on how and why to participate in the Registry, and NAON-branded pens.
Attendees were able to stop by the stage at the Joint Connection on Sunday, May 20 from 2:40 p.m. - 2:55 p.m. MDT for our presentation, "What's the Buzz About Registries?" The presentation's goal was to provide an understanding of the history and value of clinical data registries and how they can benefit your department.
