The mission of the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) Registry Program is to improve orthopaedic care through the collection, analysis, and reporting of actionable data. The Program's vision goes beyond hips and knees to include additional anatomic registries. Beginning with the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR), the AAOS Registry Program is managed by AAOS as a multi-stakeholder participation model. Stakeholders include representatives from the orthopaedic surgeon community, device manufacturers, hospitals, private payers, and the public. The AAOS Registry Program will continue AJRR public advisory best practices that help enhance the value of registries by ensuring a public voice in data collection, reporting, and utilization activities.
