AAOS Introduces the Shoulder & Elbow Registry Powered by PatientIQ

AAOS Introduces the Shoulder & Elbow Registry Powered by PatientIQ

ROSEMONT, IL – JANUARY 31, 2024 – 

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons (AAOS) has expanded its partnership with PatientIQ to offer Shoulder & Elbow Registry (SER) participants a turnkey solution for data submission. Integration of PatientIQ’s cloud-based platform into the SER marks the second AAOS Registry to offer a seamless experience that simplifies the ability to automate the collection and normalization of outcomes data. Together with AAOS, PatientIQ is reducing barriers to tracking evidence-based best practices and advancing the delivery of musculoskeletal care.

Building on Fast-Growing Adoption
AAOS first partnered with PatientIQ in December 2022 to integrate its cloud-based platform directly with Fracture & Trauma Registry (FTR) participants’ electronic health records (EHR) and simplify the ability to collect and submit registry data. Within eight months’ time, the partnership yielded more than a 20% increase in data submitted to the FTR and, today, the registry has gained more than 20 new participating sites. Given the swift success of the offering, AAOS sought to expand access outside of the FTR to its other clinical registries, beginning with the SER.

“Since the inception of the Shoulder and Elbow Registry, the AAOS has sought to revolutionize the way data can be leveraged to improve care," said Grant E. Garrigues, MD, FAAOS, SER Steering Committee Chair. "PatientIQ's technology and expertise in orthopedic data collection and analysis furthers our ability to establish best practices and optimize patient outcomes."  


A New Tier of Registry Participation Technology

To optimize AAOS registry participation, PatientIQ leverages FHIR-based APIs and other live integration functionality to extract and translate critical health information into registry-compliant specifications and submit it on behalf of participating orthopaedic surgeons. In doing so, PatientIQ eliminates the administrative and technological burden often associated with submitting procedural, post-operative, and patient-reported outcomes data to clinical registries.

“We're excited to continue building a modern clinical registry infrastructure with the AAOS, in which our technology can serve as a powerful conduit to clinical discovery," said Matthew Gitelis, CEO, PatientIQ.  

‍Hospital sites, ambulatory service centers, or institutions where fracture and trauma or shoulder and elbow-related incidents are treated are invited to participate in the FTR and SER registries. To get involved with the FTR or SER, email an AAOS Registry engagement associate at RegistryEngagement@aaos.org, call 847-292-0530, or visit www.aaos.org/registries.
