We'll have booths at the Ambulatory Surgery Center Association (ASCA) and National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses (NAON) 2019 annual meetings this month. Be sure to stop by for a live demonstration of new RegistryInsights® features and a hard copy of the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) 2018 Annual Report!
If you're attending the NAON 39th Annual Congress in Atlanta, you'll be able to find examples of nurse leadership in registries at our booth or the stage for a scheduled presentation of ours:
Implementing a PRO Program in a Healthcare System: Local Efforts and National Registry Collaboration
Tuesday, May 21, 2019 at 9:00 a.m. - 10:00 a.m. Eastern Time
Presenters: Hope Honigsberg, BSN, RN IV, CNOR, Orthopaedic Nurse Navigator, University of Maryland Shore Regional Health;
Dena Weitzman, OD, FAAO, Analytics Lead, Registries, AAOS
Attendees of this session will learn how to improve on or develop and implement a patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) program at their site in order to participate in local and national quality improvement objectives.
The AAOS Registry Program will be at Booth 353 at ASCA 2019 and Booth 507 at NAON 2019.
Whether your site is a hospital or ASC, being accredited by The Joint Commission is an important quality distinction. The next step, achieving Advanced Certification for Total Hip and Total Knee Replacement (THKR), will set you above the rest. AJRR has been selected as the sole registry pathway enabling health care sites to achieve advanced hip and knee certification. Through certification, you will not only gain high-quality recognition in the marketplace, but also achieve: a pathway to excellence, framework to improve patient outcomes, reduce variation in care, increase consistency, reduce risk of error, continuum efficiencies, and competetive edge.
For more information on Advanced Certification for THKR, stop by The Joint Commission Booth #612 at ASCA 2019 and The Joint Commission Booth #704 at NAON 2019.
