Own the bone
We are very proud to be a member and Star Performer with the American Orthopaedic Association’s Own the Bone. Own the Bone is a national quality improvement program to reduce the substantial lack of treatment for patients with osteoporotic fractures (or broken bones) and prevent subsequent fragility fractures. Osteoporosis is commonly forgotten about when treating broken bones caused by it, thus perpetuating the cycle of fragility fractures – 50% of people with a fragility fracture will have at least one more fracture. Own the Bone is aimed to better identify, evaluate and treat patients that suffer from osteoporosis or low bone density related fractures. The program brings focused to the severe health implications of osteoporotic fractures and the complex approach clinics can employ to ensure these patients receive the most comprehensive and evidence-based care.
