Gain Insight into Improving AJRR Implementation at Today’s User Group Meeting


Registries have become a driving force in health care for quality outcomes and the fulfillment of government initiatives. Aspects of the patient experience can be drilled down and identified at a level that is more precise and illuminating than before, enabling surgeons and healthcare staff to make better decisions when it comes to patient care.

AJRR holds a meeting for its users each year during the AAOS Annual Meeting, and this year’s meeting will be one of the most informative yet.
