Prescribe customized patient education with new AAOS online tool
A new online tool lets you customize educational handouts for your patients using material from the Academy’s patient education Web site, Your Orthopaedic Connection (http://OrthoInfo.org). The electronic “Rx for patient education” is an offshoot of the popular “Rx for patient education” prescription pads. It lets you select articles in any or all of the anatomic or topic areas, customize the handout with your name and practice information and then print out a ready-to-use information sheet.
If you have an AAOS Personal Physician Web site with your practice logo, that logo will also be displayed on the handouts. You can give patients their customized “Rx for patient education” handouts during office appointments, and simply check off the articles you want them to read. Access and create your personalized “Rx for patient education” at: http://www.aaos.org/rx (password protected).
