Ask About the AAOS Registry Analytics Institute (RAI)

While visiting AJRR Table #7, ask about the AAOS Registry Analytics Institute (RAI). In February 2019, the AAOS Registry Program launched RAI to encourage and enable the use of registry data in national clinical studies. The Institute gives clinicians and clinician-scientists the opportunity to submit their hypothesis and proposal for investigations that utilize registry data and inform orthopaedic quality improvement.

Data requests are open to investigators who have a well-defined hypothesis or question related to orthopaedics or musculoskeletal care. For this initiative, “investigators” do not include representatives from industry, federal agencies, commercial entities, insurance companies, administrative databases, or hospital consortia. Use the resources below to access applications and additional information.

  • Speak with our AAOS Registry Program staff at Table #7 about RAI opportunities
  • Cycle 3 applications are being accepted 10/18/19-12/2/19. Learn more about the application and review process here.
  • Visit the Institute's Frequently Asked Questions page for more information


See you in Dallas this November!

Data Snapshot

Did you know? In "Linked" AJRR knee arthroplasty revisions, aseptic problems of wear and mechanical failure were less frequent than infection, which accounted for approximately 27% of these relatively early revision procedures. This percentage increases to over 50% when only revisions performed within three months of the primary procedure are considered.
