Staff from the American Joint Replacement Registry co-investigated Medicare hospital claims and beneficiary enrollment data
ROSEMONT, Ill. (March 6, 2018) — The American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), a hip and knee replacement database part of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons’ (AAOS) registries portfolio, has conducted a study analyzing the correlation between hospital size, the reason for revision (or re-do) surgery, and where total joint arthroplasty (TJA) revision surgery is performed. The link between these three factors has not been studied extensively until now.
“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.”
