AAHKS members have been receiving informational packets from the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) in the mail this week. If you have further questions or would like to view a demonstration of the new AJRR Level III patient-reported outcome (PRO) dashboard system, AJRR staff will be available at the in Academy Hall WC at the AAOS Annual Meeting in Orlando.
The PRO dashboard system collects electronic health records (EHR) directly from hospitals or through an EHR vendor, and sorts the data into charts, graphs, and reports. Once a significant amount of data is collected in the Registry, the dashboard system will be able to compare PRO data from individual hospitals to national benchmarks.
Stop by the AJRR booth if you are thinking about starting a PRO program or are ready to submit PRO data to a Registry. Visitors can also pick up the new AJRR Patient-Reported Outcome Measures (PROMs) Guide. If you can’t make it to the meeting, contact staff and download the PROMs guide at www.AJRR.net. AJRR is the official registry of AAHKS.
