The best place to learn more about Registry Program participation is the AAOS Registry Program booth in the Resource Center at Academy Hall, open Tuesday through Friday, 7 a.m. to 5 p.m.
Registry staff will be available to answer any questions about the AAOS Fracture & Trauma Registry (FTR), the Academy’s newest registry. The FTR is now open for enrollment and collects data on five of the more common fractures in the United States. Staff will also be able to discuss any of AAOS’ other four registries: the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR); the Musculoskeletal Tumor Registry; the Shoulder & Elbow Registry; and the American Spine Registry (ASR), which is a collaboration between the American Association of Neurological Surgeons and AAOS. Your input is wanted on the Registry Surgeon Dashboards—come get a demo and provide your insights for future enhancements.
Another reason to stop by the Registry Program booth is the opportunity to pick up an electronic copy of the AJRR 2021 Annual Report Supplement. The AJRR supplement includes device-specific cumulative percentage revision rates as well as demographic and outcome data by COVID-19 status. An AAOS Patient-facing Registry Report with information on all the AAOS registries and the importance of patient-reported outcomes will be available at the booth as well. Attendees will also be able to pick up a printed ASR Fact Sheet with figures from the registry’s cervical and lumbar spine data.
Registry data can help participating sites meet requirements for collaborative programs such as quality certification programs, federal quality initiatives, insurer distinction programs, and state collaboratives. Don’t miss presentations from The Joint Commission at the Engagement Theater in Academy Hall, where staff from The Joint Commission will discuss program requirements for its Advanced Certifications for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement and Spine Surgery. AJRR and ASR satisfy the registry requirement for each, respectively. The Joint Commission mentoring session, which will answer questions about the certifications, will be held Wednesday from 1 to 2 p.m. in McCormick Place Room E256.
AAOS collaborators Cohere Health will have an Engagement Theater presentation titled “Reimagining Prior Authorization for Musculoskeletal Care.” Registry surgeon leadership will also speak in additional Engagement Theater presentations about the various AAOS registries and recent publications utilizing their data analyses. Please refer to the My Academy app for dates and times.
AAOS members will present registry data throughout the Annual Meeting and have collaborated on four posters that will be on display in Academy Hall. For details about the presentations, posters, and the Registry Program booth, visit www.aaos.org/RegistriesAM2022.
