Since its inception (January 2018), this blog's following has been growing steadily. We would like to take the opportunity to thank our readers for their participation, contributions, and feedback. Currently, 5,000 health care professionals receive the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) Blog by email weekly. Others access it though the AJRR website, via a keyword search on the Internet, or on Twitter. Our audience consists of AJRR participants/subscribers, other AJRR stakeholders, and institutions that have indicated an interest in joining AJRR.
Most Popular Content
Blog content is chosen to address diversified, sometimes controversial, clinical and registry issues/opportunities. Some of the most popular topics deal with translating registry findings into clinical practice. The selection criteria for our most popular blogs-to-date (Top 5) are based on number of views, submitted comments, and reader follow-up requests. In case you've missed any of the Top 5 blogs as identified by the actions of your peers, access them below. You can also share past blogs that may interest your colleagues with the social media icons below the title of each blog post.
AJRR's Top 5 blogs:

Reader Comments and Requests
"This was a great article [Providence St. Joseph Health: Surgeons Unify Registry Structure]. Do you or can you get a PDF version? I'd like to share with my hospitals. I suspect there are many others that would benefit from reading as well," requested by OrthoCarolina Hip and Knee Center, Carolina Medical Center.
Typical reader requests are for clarifications, links, or PDFs of "how-to" material included in a blog post. The Providence St. Joseph Health and patient-reported outcome blogs both generated requests like these. Reader comments, on the other hand, often encourage additional coverage of a specific topic, as occurred with the "THA and TKA Surgical Insights" blog post and others that source findings from AJRR's Annual Report. "Are My Patients Sicker Than Yours?," a blog on risk-adjusted data that just missed the Top 5, received many comments indicating that readers were "Looking forward to seeing more on this [topic]." These comments are important to guiding our writing staff to content our readers value.
