Leadership Comments on the Value of AJRR Research Now and in the Future

AJRR subscribers consider actionable research findings, based on Registry data and independent analysis, among the most valuable deliverables they receive through AJRR participation. Those deliverables are on display at this year’s AAHKS Annual Meeting, so subscriber and non-subscriber attendees can benefit.

Terence J. Gioe, MD, AJRR Annual Report editor and a frequent collaborator on AJRR research efforts, stated, “AJRR’s access to Medicare claims data, new data specifications that support risk-adjusted analysis, and emphasis on data completeness all contribute to more in-depth research and published findings. The results help surgeons and institutions improve arthroplasty patient outcomes by reducing adverse events that might otherwise go unidentified.”

Kevin J. Bozic, MD, AJRR Steering Committee chair, added, “As the largest orthopaedic registry in the world, based on the number of procedures submitted annually, AJRR data submissions continue to grow through new institution participation. AJRR database growth creates additional research opportunity for subscribers and potentially more statistically significant findings.”
