With more than 1,200 participating sites (hospitals, health systems, surgery centers, and private practice groups), the AAOS created the AAOS Registry Program User Group Network (Unet). This network was created to provide all of the Registry Program’s users and participants the opportunity to share ideas and interact with each other about the collection of orthopaedic procedure data in the United States through a National Registry Program.
We (the Registry Program) strive to create an environment within the orthopaedic community that fosters conversation about best practices and learning ways to improve orthopaedic Registry implementation and processes within their own site.
Members of this network will have the opportunity to participate in regular conference calls and webinars, contact other Registry Program users for information, and help shape the orthopaedic Registry community through their insights and contributions.
Another benefit of being a Registry Program participant is access to the network of other users. To activate engagement and communication with other users, register by creating an AAOS Registry Program 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.
