Companies Helping to Shape the Future of Spinecare

Introduction

The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) is an organization comprised of healthcare professionals dedicated to excellence in spinecare. The primary mission of the academy is to facilitate integrated and multidisciplinary spinecare. The AASP is committed to providing educational opportunities and resources for healthcare professionals and their patients. To help meet its goals the AASP has partnered with the International Spine Association (ISA), an organization dedicated to informing professionals and the public worldwide about the spine, spine disorders, available spinecare and spinecare products.

The AASP offers numerous opportunities and programs for companies, who are committed to reaching members of the spinecare community and improving spinecare. Companies are encouraged to become educational partners. Companies are also encouraged to display product information on the International Directory of Spinecare Products and to help the AASP and to help keep spinecare professionals and the public informed about new technology and available products in spinecare.

The American Academy of Spine Physicians


The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) is one of the largest professional organizations of its kind, representing healthcare professionals of various disciplines who care for patients with spine and related disorders.  The primary mission of the AASP is to facilitate an integrated and collaborative approach to spinecare. The AASP is committed to providing educational opportunities and resources to patients, physicians and the public.

National Initiatives

The AASP has implemented numerous national initiatives to help inform the public, patients and professionals about the spine, spine disorders, available spinecare and spinecare products. To help improve the delivery of spinecare, the AASP offers continuing education opportunities to healthcare professionals leading to prestigious credentialing (Diplomate and Fellow status). The AASP leads the National Spinecare Awareness Initiative, which encompasses many educational projects, one of the largest being the online Public Information Center (PIC) of the International Spine Association (ISA). The AASP with the help of the ISA has the potential to reach millions of individuals with information about spinecare, lifestyle and product recommendations.

Influence of the American Academy of Spine Physicians

The prevalence of spine-related disorders has grown to epidemic proportions with back pain representing one of the most common reasons for seeing a healthcare provider.  The direct and indirect costs of spinecare have a profound impact on many societies including the United States (U.S.). The majority of individuals over 50 years of age have degenerative changes in their spine. Approximately 80% of the U.S. population will experience a back problem at some time during their lifetime. Most people go to the internet to search for health-related subjects, which include information about spine disorders and spinecare professionals and to research treatment options.

Consumers are influenced less by traditional marketing approaches and are looking to national organizations and peer-reviewed content on the internet to help make healthcare decisions. The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP), like the American Heart Association (AHA), and the American Diabetes Association (ADA), is in a position of influence, and, therefore, assumes the responsibility to educate the public and members of the healthcare profession about spinecare-related topics. This is a monumental task and requires the integrated efforts of spinecare professionals, educational institutions, and corporate partners.

The AASP frequently receives requests from consumers, the media, physicians and other healthcare professionals for product recommendations. The AASP is frequently cited for its perspectives on lifestyle issues and the role of products.  From time to time, the AASP endorses products and publishes recommendations to help individuals make good choices.

The American Academy of Spine Physicians has implemented effective strategies to help Corporate Educational Partners and Educational Sponsors reach healthcare professionals, patients and the public. One of the methods utilizes advanced internet communication technology to link healthcare websites to AASP and ISA databases. One of the resources is the plug-in module which can be embedded into any website and lead the user to a multimedia database of "need-to-know" information about the spine, spine disorders, available spinecare and spinecare products. Spinecare providers can help ensure that their patients are informed through the use of Spinecare Information Prescription forms/pads. AASP members and their patients can also access and download information about spinecare products through the searchable database of the International Directory of Spinecare Products, an online catalog managed by the ISA.

It is the position of the AASP that all spinecare professionals should provide direction to their patients about available educational resources whenever possible. To help members, their patients and the public identify good products and services, the AASP offers endorsement opportunities for services and products.

To obtain this level of endorsement your product or service must be evaluated by the AASP Products and Services Committee followed by approval of the AASP Board of Directors.

A non-exclusive endorsement by the AASP indicates that your company, product or service is one that meets the AASP endorsement criteria. This endorsement grants you the right to use the "Endorsed by the American Academy of Spine Physicians" logo, but the AASP would retain the right to endorse competing products and services. To obtain this level of endorsement your product or service must be evaluated by the Products and Services Committee followed by approval of the AASP Board of Directors. Each endorsement will be listed on a directory of recommended products/services for professionals, patients and the public. This document can be downloaded from the AASP website and will be used by spinecare professionals, patients and the public to make good choices.

An AASP product endorsement represents that the Academy has reviewed a product and states that it is a good product that will contribute to spinehealth.

For more information about product endorsement, please contact the AASP at service@spinephysicians.org or call (847) 697-4660. You may also go to the AASP website at www.spinephysicians.org to review and download additional information about corporate opportunities.

Product Endorsement Brochure

Some of the programs and projects are summarized below:

The International Spinecare Directory

The International Spine Association (ISA) with the assistance of the American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) developed and manages the International Spinecare Directory (ISD) The ISD is comprised of five interconnected subdirectories which are the International Directory of Spinecare Professionals, the International Directory of Spinecare Facilities, the International Directory of Spinecare Products, the International Directory of Spine Organizations and International Directory of Spinecare companies.  All of the directories are highly visible and accessible online. Each directory houses a full profile page for listed products or participants. Active members and credentialed members of the AASP receive a higher level of recognition on the directory. AASP Educational Sponsors, Educational Partners and endorsed spinecare products/services receive special acknowledgment and/or recognition on their respective directory listings.

Each online directory is linked to the AASP website and to the online Public Information Center (PIC) of the International Spine Association (ISA). This gives each user an opportunity to acquire need-to-know-information about the spine, spine disorders, available spinecare and spinecare products. The user can also learn about the roles of the various spinecare disciplines. Educational partners and sponsors will be acknowledged with click through banners or icons on each of the directories. They will also receive prominent recognition for their contribution to the field of spinecare.

Online Public Information Center (PIC)


The online Public Information Center (PIC) represents a multimedia database of information about the spine, spine disorders, and available spinecare developed through the collaborative efforts of the International Spine Association (ISA) and the American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP). The PIC is held and managed by the ISA and serves as one of the largest databases of its kind. It represents the public information hub for the AASP and the ISA. Four Spine Information Script Pads were developed for use with the PIC. The script pads were designed to direct patents to online information about their spine disorder as well as, recommended spinecare product(s), recommended treatment methods and for referral to other spinecare professionals. Healthcare professionals can use the script forms to direct patients to relevant information. The script forms are available to all healthcare providers. However, active AASP members can print personalized forms.


Good Choices Program


The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) is committed to informing the public about the importance of lifestyle modification and the use of select products to help manage neck and back pain as well as to improve spinehealth. To help achieve this goal, the AASP developed the "Good Choices" program, which includes a downloadable list of products, services and lifestyle recommendations. This includes a list of recommended and/or endorsed spinecare-related products organized by category. Products which are endorsed by the AASP and/or by the International Spine Association (ISA) will be acknowledged. AASP Educational Partners and Sponsors will be acknowledged in this program.

Practice Development Program


The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) Practice Development Program was created to provide members with resources they can use to develop and grow their practice. This program includes access to credentialing, educational brochures, marketing posters, press releases, professional introductory letters, PowerPoint slide programs, and website database plug-ins. The AASP will continue to develop resources for members. The Educational Partners and Sponsors assigned to this program will receive prominent visibility and will be considered a valuable member of the development process.

Candidate Member Program


The Candidate Member Program of the American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) encompasses the development and implementation of special products and services for students and residents in training. This initiative was designed to reach candidate members and potential candidate members at various educational institutions throughout the country. This program provides a unique opportunity for AASP Educational Partners and Sponsors to increase their visibility to individuals, who will be purchasing products, requiring services and investing in their practice after graduation.

AASP Career Enhancement Program

The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) offers Career Enhancement opportunities. The AASP has partnered with another organization to provide comprehensive career services and resources. An online AASP Career Center was designed to help members expand their career opportunities. This includes posting professional information, finding employment and navigating career transitions. The program was also designed to help employers locate and learn about qualified spinecare professionals of various disciplines. It has become increasingly important for physician and non-physician spinecare professionals to have perpetual access to career opportunities, especially with the transition toward larger integrated healthcare groups and healthcare systems.

The AASP Career Enhancement Program includes an online career board which allows employers and job seekers to post opportunities, make inquires, direct offers, search databases, receive emails, and advance their careers right from their digital devices.  Additional services include convenient, personalized career guidance services such as resume critiques, career coaching, resume & cover letter services, and disclosure of salary negotiation considerations. Career boards can be used to help facilities find qualified support staff. The AASP is committed to working with other associations to help facilitate nationwide "match-making" solutions. The integration of online organizational career boards/databases will enhance the visibility of resumes which will enhance the growth and development of spinecare professionals and facilities.

Social Networking Program

The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) offers social networking tools and resources to help members communicate with other professionals and the public. Networked communication provides an efficient method for "spreading the word" and revealing opportunities. The AASP has developed a resource referred to as SpineLink (Spincare360) which has many of the resources of other types of social media such as LinkedIn Twitter, My Space and Facebook. This resource can be used to inform a colleague and to invite a healthcare provider to join the AASP and to join a member's personal spinecare network.  The AASP also offers a library of text, messages and facts which can be quickly be accessed and used in social media settings. SpineLink (Spinecare360) can be used to facilitate the diffusion of innovations in spinecare.

Networking sites provide the spinecare professional with a unique opportunity to communicate with other healthcare professionals and to develop referral relationships. Social networking also facilitates the sharing of information such as pictures, brochures, videos, fact sheets, online information and other educational materials. Favorite links and tools can be shared with others. Users can also be drawn into or directed to practice settings.

Online networking is sometimes referred to as "viral marketing" because of the rapid multidirectional spread of information. With the push of a few buttons on a computer, keyboard or mobile technology, members can distribute information quicker and to a larger audience than through other forms of media. Online networking has become a powerful tool, which will continue to influence personal health and the delivery of spinecare. It will continue to empower patients, professionals and the public.
