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
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.
