What is Own the Bone?

Learn more about how Own the Bone offers simple tools including a patient registry and 10 prevention measures to accomplish its goals.

Why Own the Bone?

Learn about the fragility fracture epidemic and how Own the Bone enables hospitals and practices to establish a bone health or fracture liaison service (FLS) to help evaluate and treat these patients.

“One of the best predictors of a future fragility fracture is a previous fragility fracture.  The AOA’s Own the Bone program sounds the alarm and provides a protocol and registry to give these patients the support, treatment, and education to reduce the risk of a secondary fragility fracture.”
– Fred C. Redfern, MD, FAOA

Own the Bone works across different care settings

Learn from three Own the Bone program coordinators who found success running an FLS program within their different care settings, including an urban academic medical center, a community-based regional hospital, and an integrated health system.
