Do you want to become a Star Performer?

The American Orthopaedic Association regularly recognizes Own the Bone sites as Star Performers for their commitment to improving patient bone health after a fracture.

Own the Bone enrolled hospitals and practices that achieve a 75% compliance rate with at least 5 of the 10 Own the Bone prevention measures, based on patients entered during the preceding 12 month period, receive a special recognition as “Own the Bone Star Performers” in the annual recognition ad in U.S. News & World Report “Best Hospitals” Guide. Through their participation in Own the Bone and recognition as an Own the Bone Star Performer, institutions demonstrate a commitment to helping patients understand their risk for future fractures and the steps they can take to prevent them.

Star Performers receive additional public relations tools and recognition such as:
A special participant logo:
