The California Joint Replacement Registry (CJRR), founded and primarily funded by the California HealthCare Foundation (CHCF), and the American Joint Replacement Registry (AJRR) announced the transfer of CJRR to AJRR. CJRR will be solely owned and managed by AJRR. CHCF will provide a restricted grant to CJRR to aid AJRR in the transition process and to support CJRR’s operations as a separate entity, in parallel with AJRR operations. As part of the agreement between CHCF and AJRR, CJRR will continue public reporting of patient outcomes in consultation with the newly formed California Data Use Group (CDUG). CDUG will serve as an advisory committee to CJRR. This new relationship between the two organizations will help advance the mission to provide better outcomes for patients having total hip and knee arthroplasties in California and throughout the United States.
