The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Registry Program is dedicated to improving orthopaedic care through the collection, analysis, and reporting of actionable data. We are a not-for-profit organization that brings quality improvement initiatives to hospitals, private practice groups, ambulatory surgery centers, physicians, and the public. We also provide comprehensive orthopaedic knowledge and will potentially identify problems before they are discovered by public health agencies. The wide range of actionable information and reporting we provide helps improve patient care.
The AAOS Registry Program believes that we are improving orthopaedic care through data. Not only is it our mission, but our staff lives this through the daily interactions with the people who work at the hospitals, surgery centers, and private practice groups who give us their data.
We collect, convert, and compile data from participants into our own aggregate format. We produce numerous options for comparative reports individualized by site, surgeon, procedure, implant, manufacturer, and other criteria. Our patient-reported outcomes (PRO) platform can also be used for survey deployment, collection, and viewing.
Hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and private practice groups can participate in the Registry Program for an annual subscription fee. In exchange, participants receive access to the RegistryInsights™ Institution and Surgeon Dashboards, our PRO platform, and unlimited reporting of data.
