Surgeons Can Now Compare Their Own Procedure Data Against National Registry Benchmarks
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 contributed by hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and orthopaedic practices across the United States. With the recent introduction of Surgeon Dashboards, the Registry Program has added a new quality improvement resource available to individual AAOS surgeon members.
This new member benefit allows surgeons, whose sites participate in an AAOS Registry, to compare their individual data against national de-identified information and benchmarks. The Surgeon Dashboards, enabled by an enhancement to the AAOS RegistryInsights® platform, can display procedural, post-operative, and patient-reported outcomes (PRO) data. Surgeon Dashboards are available at no additional cost to participating sites’ surgeons who are AAOS members.
