AJRR 2018 Annual Report to be Released on November 2
Just as in previous years, the AJRR will publish its Annual Report during the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) Annual Meeting in Dallas, TX. Hard copies of the AJRR 2018 Annual Report on Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Data will be distributed at the AJRR’s booth at the meeting starting on November 2, 2018. The report will also be available for download that day on the AJRR website.
Analysis of 2017 Registry data yields new insights into U.S. hip and knee arthroplasty practice. AJRR remains the largest orthopaedic registry in the world based on annual procedures submitted.
In 2017-2018, AAOS and AJRR, united through the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Registry Program, successfully delivered on significant past promises to Registry stakeholders. Read this year’s Annual Report for information about what it means to join the AAOS Registry Program, gain access to Medicare claims data, create new data specifications that support risk-adjusted findings, ensure data completeness, enhance the RegistryInsights™ dashboard experience, launch an International Prostheses Library, and so much more that adds value to an institution’s Registry participation.
