The American Academy of Spine Physicians (AASP) is developing website plugins. A plugin refers to an icon or link which can be embedded onto a website page to serve as a click through portal to additional information.

The ISA plugin provides a seamless link to the Public Information Center (PIC), an online multimedia database of information on the spine, spinehealth and available spinecare care. The AASP and the ISA have been working together to develop an internet bridge which would help add informational depth to members professional websites. This valuable internet resource is referred to as the ISA PIC Plugin. There is no charge for members use of the Plugin. The ISA may offer the use of the Plugin to all healthcare professionals. This will enhance awareness about the complexity of the spine and it will bring greater attention to the role of spine specialists.
