February 1999 AAOS Report

1998 online sales increase

Online purchases made on the Academy's web site generated more than $750,000 in revenues in 1998. Sales of AAOS textbooks, videotapes and continuing medical education course and Annual Meeting registrations were responsible for the revenues. However, much of the success of the online purchases can be attributed to the increased registrations received for the 1999 Annual Meeting. Online registration for the meeting more than doubled this year with 2,071 people accessing the Academy's web site to register; last year, 975 people used the home page to register for the Annual Meeting. Most online purchases can be made by accessing the "Educational Resource Catalog" section at www.aaos.org. A new service to Academy members on the web site is the "Orthopaedic Bookstore" where you can find information on and purchase practically any medical book in print.
