AAOS introduces Practice Management reSOURCE Directory

Whether you’re thinking about expanding your practice, looking for human resources support, or seeking legal assistance, the AAOS is making it easy for you to find business vendors and consultants you can trust—companies and individuals who specialize in working with practices like yours.

The new Practice Management reSOURCE Directory helps you find quality companies that specialize in practice management solutions and services. This new online service enables you to quickly search based on criteria important to you and your specific practice needs and identify a reliable “short list” of companies to consider—and all come recommended by your colleagues.

Trustworthy and convenient

When you want a track record of consistency, check the reSOURCE Directory. Each company is recommended by at least three orthopaedic practices that are highly satisfied with their products and services. Complete contact information is provided, so you save time and avoid frustration from unproductive Internet searches or cold-calling.

The reSOURCE Directory is an integrated resource that presents information critical for managing a busy practice in a handy, concise, and user-friendly format.
