Why Enroll?

Own the Bone:

  • provides tools and resources necessary to begin your own fragility fracture program.
     
  • helps institutions establish a fracture liaison service (FLS) in which a care coordinator (normally a RN or NP) ensures that post-fracture patients are identified and receive appropriate evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment, under the supervision of their primary care physician, orthopaedic surgeon or osteoporosis specialist.
     
  • has been tested and proven effective.
     
  • provides access to benchmarking capabilities enabling you to measure your hospital's performance internally as well as externally.
     
  • is adaptable to suit your institution and patient population's needs.
     
  • provides the structure necessary to implement higher quality standards. "Failure to diagnose" osteoporosis associated with related fractures is likely to become a key quality of care and professional liability issue for hospitals and physicians.
     
  • is the right thing to do.  By enrolling in Own the Bone, physicians, medical specialists, and hospitals are showing that they are concerned about patient bone health and that their patients will receive the appropriate follow-up care.
