Ask About the AAOS Registry Analytics Institute (RAI)

While visiting AJRR Table #1, ask about the AAOS Registry Analytics Institute®(RAI). The goal of the RAI is to provide a resource to the scientific community to further understand and improve orthopaedic and musculoskeletal care by making data analyses available. Investigators can submit hypotheses about information in AAOS registries. The RAI supports the AAOS mission while also providing clinicians and scientist-clinicians access to information beyond what is already published.

Analyses requests are open to investigators who have a well-defined hypothesis or question related to orthopaedics or musculoskeletal care. For this initiative, “investigators” are clinicians or clinician-scientists affiliated with a clinical practice or care setting. Representatives from industry, federal agencies, commercial entities, insurance companies, administrative databases, or hospital consortia are not eligible. Use the resources below to access applications and additional information.

  • Speak with our AAOS Registry Program staff at Table #1 about RAI opportunities
  • Cycle 3-2021 applications are being accepted through November 15, 2021. Learn more about the application and review process here.
  • See a list of papers and presentations based off RAI completed applications.

We are looking forward to seeing everyone in person at #AAHKS2021.
