Do More With Your Data Through Registry Participation

Clinical data registries help the frontline orthopaedic surgeon to collect quality data without having to create the entire infrastructure themselves and serve a vital role in empowering surgeons to demonstrate quality based on their data.
In late 2018, the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) launched the AAOS Shoulder & Elbow Registry (SER). Participation by practice sites (hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, or private practices) enables evidence-based analysis by surgeons on a scale not possible before.
Practice sites that join SER get full logistic and technical support from expert staff. And, these benefits:
  • Shoulder arthroplasty, rotator cuff repair, and elbow arthroplasty modules for data collection
  • Dashboards for all surgeons at the site
  • The RegistryInsights® patient-reported outcome (PRO) technology solution to administer and manage PRO measure collection
  • Participation counting towards ABOS Maintenance of Certification requirements
Watch the replay from the AAOS webinar, “New AAOS Shoulder & Elbow Registry Modules You Should Know About,” to learn more or if you would like to speak to an AAOS staff member about enrollment, please contact AAOS Registry Engagement Associate Kristine Sizemore at

STOP Campaign

The American Shoulder and Elbow Surgeons is excited to announce a new partnership with the American Orthopaedic Society for Sports Medicine (AOSSM) and the STOP (Sports Trauma and Overuse Prevention) Sports Injuries program, which aims to help prevent traumatic and overuse injuries in young athletes.
The program utilizes a broad set of sport and injury-specific resources that provide athletes, parents, coaches and healthcare professionals information on common sports injuries, how they can be treated, and most importantly what steps can be taken to prevent them. Beyond raising awareness on the important topic of injury prevention, the program also highlights how playing safe and smart can enhance and extend a child’s athletic career, improve teamwork, reduce obesity rates and create a lifelong love of exercise and healthy activity.
We encourage ASES members to consider supporting the program by signing-up their own practices and institutions as official collaboration organizations and sharing the educational materials with patients. To learn more about how you can get involved and help keep kids in the game for life, visit

SOS and OBERD Systems Now Available to ASES Members

In Spring 2018 the ASES leadership carefully evaluated several data management web-based systems that would allow ASES members to collect and analyze patient reported outcome data as well as promote the use and improvement of PRO’s in clinical care.  After a thorough evaluation, the ASES leadership chose 2 systems: Surgical Outcomes System™ and OBERD.
Each data management system brings a set of valuable benefits – members are invited to select the system that best addresses their practice needs. SOS if available free of charge while OBERD is being offered at a deeply discounted price. This is an excellent opportunity for our members and we hope that you will take full advantage of this benefit. To learn more about each system review the details below.
