Resource Center offers bookstore, new products
The AAOS Resource Center, located in the main level of the South Lobby, offers a
convenient orthopaedic bookstore for Annual Meeting attendees to see new offerings
from the Academy's publications program, and learn about up-coming products
and courses. Academy staff will be present to answer questions about products,
patient education brochures and booklets, course calendars and the 2000 Summer Institute.
In the Resource Center, attendees can even make purchases via the Internet for shipment
directly from the AAOS warehouse and drop-off orders (for shipment only) will
be accepted on site to help them avoid lines.
The CD-ROM demonstration area will have 12 computers
to offer visitors to the Resource Center more op-portunities to review
electronic titles. A new Coding Center will have computer stations that
will allow you to experiment with the latest re-lease of CodeX,
browse Global Service Data and ICD91CPT Cross Reference for 2000
and other practice management resources. Members of the Academy's
Coding Committee will be available to answer questions.
