Watch patient John Koos and Dr. James Caillouette share their experience as participants in the California Joint Replacement Registry (CJRR).
The California Joint Replacement Registry (CJRR) is an effort by the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF), Pacific Business Group on Health (PBGH), and the California Orthopaedic Association (COA) to collect and share information about hip and knee replacement surgeries performed in the state.
7.2 million Americans are currently living with an artificial hip or knee, and this number is expected to grow as the demand for total hip and knee replacement surgeries increases. Despite the popularity of these surgeries, however, resources for patients, surgeons and hospitals regarding cost and quality are extremely limited. The CJRR aims to rectify this by providing outcomes information to help guide physician and patient decisions, support programs for provider recognition and reward, and produce better outcomes for both patients and surgeons.
