Rosemont, Ill.– April 21, 2016 – The American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), The American Orthopaedic Association (AOA), and the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) announce the formation of a new collaboration to align their quality initiatives and reporting through the AJRR’s Orthopaedic Quality Resource Center. The AJRR Orthopaedic Quality Resource Center was once again approved as a Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) for the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid (CMS) Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) for 2016. Under this new collaboration, the three organizations will cooperate in offering the AJRR Orthopaedic Quality Resource Center, operated on the CECity Medconcert platform, for eligible professionals (EPs) and group practices interested in submitting Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS) measures.
“AJRR has taken on a monumental task, and I believe they even surprise themselves when it comes to how successful they have been. It speaks to a well-conceived plan that is being effectively executed.”
