AJRR and ASCA partner to validate the effectiveness of outpatient surgery centers
Rosemont, Ill. - March 7, 2017 - The American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) and the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) announce they have entered into a collaborative relationship to encourage ASCA-member ambulatory surgery centers (ASCs) to register in the AJRR. Registry participation, and the data that will be complied, will be used to validate current efforts to reduce health care costs by moving total joint replacements to Medicare's ASC-payable list and expanding the number of private payers that will reimburse ASCs for these procedures.
“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.”
