FORCE-TJR attended the Academy Health Annual Research Meeting (ARM) held in June 2915 in Minneapolis, MN. Two presentations were selected for this meeting:

  • Li W, Ayers DC, Harrold L, Lewis C, Franklin PD. A Novel Covariate Adjustment Method for Functional Outcomes after Total Knee Replacement.  (Poster
  • Li W, Ayers DC, Harrold L, Lewis C, Franklin PD. A Novel Covariate Adjustment Method for Functional Outcomes after Total Hip Replacement. 


FORCE-TJR was invited to attend the Health Datapalooza Meeting held in Washington, DC. Patricia Franklin (PI) participated in a panel discussing lessons learned from collecting patient reported outcomes in the UK and US (based on FORCE-TJR data). Of note, patients with a BMI greater than 40 reported significant gains in function after TKR in both the US and FORCE/US.


FORCE-TJR was well represented at the International Congress of Arthroplasty Registries (ISAR) that was held in May 2-15 in Gothenburg, Sweden. Four presentations were selected for the meeting:

  • Ayers DC, Li W, Franklin PD. Using six month post-TKR pain and function measures by implant category for surveillance of early revision risk. (Podium)
  • Li W, Ayers DC, Harrold L, Lewis C, Franklin PD. Novel risk-adjustment method for functional outcomes after total knee replacement. (Podium)
  • Franklin PD, Li W, Ayers DC. US patient risk factors for medical and surgical readmissions after TJR. (Podium)
  • Uyen-Sa D. T. Nguyen, David C. Ayers, Wenjun Li, Leslie Harrold, Patricia D. Franklin Profiles of pre-operative pain and function in patients receiving total hip replacements: a US national cohort (2011-2014). (Podium)


FORCE-TJR participated in the AAOS annual meeting, March 24-28, 2015 in Las Vegas, NV with scientific exhibition (Academy Hall G - Booth SE07) and a number of presentations.

​Course Overview
After the webinar, participants will have a better understanding of transfer of care, concurrent care and the proper application of the various consultation service codes, as well as how to properly apply the recent changes in their practice. 

Educational Objectives
At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  1. Discuss efforts promoting the implementation of patient-reported outcomes (PROs) in health care
  2. Describe ways in which PRO data support patient engagement in health care
  3. Discuss strategies to capture PROs in routine clinical care
  4. Understand challenges and future opportunities for PRO implementation in health care
