Data Shows Continuity of Hip and Knee Arthroplasty Trends and New Findings From Enhanced Survivorship Analyses 

"Highlights in this Annual Report include new analysis of timely topics including dual mobility hip bearings and cementless fixation in total knee arthroplasty, exploration of the impact of patient comorbidities including smoking, and more sophisticated survivorship analyses with adjustment for age and sex, along with other findings."

"Building on an already solid foundation, this year's Annual Report provides additional clinical insights and risk stratified outcome analyses related to patients who undergo hip and knee arthroplasty procedures. These analyses were made possible by the successful integration of administrative claims data into AJRR, which provides a more complete picture of our patient population and their associated comorbidities and outcomes, including longitudinal outcomes of patients who receive care at non-AJRR participating sites."

-Kevin J. Bozic, MD, MBA
Chair, AJRR Steering Committee


The 2019 Annual Report showcases new or enhanced Registry capabilities and offerings including:

  • Increased tracking and monitoring of patient outcomes with longitudinal patient information though the expansion of the Registry analytics platform, RegistryInsights®. Now, participating hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and individual surgeons have the ability to view their respective dashboards displaying their data compared to the AJRR national benchmark.
  • Enhanced capture of patient-reported outcome measures (PROMs) through continued support of the RegistryInsights PROM platform and partnerships with third-party vendors with the expanded Authorized Vendor Program.
  • Additional opportunities for sites to track performance measurements and use Registry data in national quality improvement (QI) programs.
  • Peer-reviewed publications and presentations based on AJRR Registry data.
