The goal of the Own the Bone program is to close the treatment gap between the repair of a fragility fracture and the prevention of future fractures. By implementing a comprehensive 10-measure program, Own the Bone seeks to:
- Close the gap documented in the RAND and NCQA studies as it applies to physician treatment recommendations
- Change physician and patient behavior to reduce incidence of future fractures
- Develop a turnkey multidisciplinary program that will become incorporated as routine clinical practice
- Promote osteoporosis treatment and bone health maintenance
- Reduce the impact of osteoporosis
- Reduce the risk of mortality after hip fractures
