Welcome Goals of Meeting Discuss osteoporosis and low bone density Learn about the AOA Own the Bone® Program Identify and Initiate Implementation Steps for Own the Bone Welcome/Goals 2
Osteoporosis/Low Bone DensityMagnitude of Problem 3 • Nearly 25% of patients who suffer a hip fracture die within 12 months, while another 20% end up in a nursing home • Fragility is the most common cause of fractures among seniors, yet only 20% of patients receive best-practice care • Up to 50% of all women and 25% of all men over age 50 will sustain fragility fractures in their remaining lifetime
Fragility Fracture Occurrences • Fractures cost: >$19 billion/year • Increase expected if no action 400,000wrist 550,000 vertebral 350,000 hip 125,000 pelvic 675,000 other Sources: American Cancer Society .

Why Did AOA Create Own the Bone® ? 5 • AOA Critical Issue: AOA understood it would take leadership to change physician and patient behavior • AOA developed Own the Bone to address a treatment gap highlighted in the 2004 U.S. Surgeon General’s Report on Bone Health and Osteoporosis • AOA successfully piloted Own the Bone in 14 hospitals in the United States for 10 months in 2005/2006 • Results published in JBJS January 2008
What isOwn the Bone® ? 6 • A web-based quality improvement initiative • Multi-specialty approach • A means to identify, evaluate and initiate evidence-based care for osteoporosis and low bone density after a fragility fracture in patients aged 50 and over • Follows National Osteoporosis Foundation Clinician’s Guidelines • Overlaps with CMS, AMA Physician’s Consortium, HEDIS Measures • Consistent with Joint Commission Monograph on Osteoporosis
Own the Bone®: Goals 7 • Increase overall awareness and improve utilization of evidence-based management of osteoporosis and low bone density in fragility fracture patients 50 and over • Change physician and patient behavior to reduce the incidence of future fractures and improve patient care by promoting bone health • Encourage clinicians to identify, evaluate, diagnose, and treat patients with poor bone health after a fragility fracture • Close the “treatment gap” documented in theRAND and NCQA studies • Capitalize on the “Teachable Moment”
Own the Bone®: Benefits 8 • Promotes gathering and recording of pertinent information efficiently through a national, web-based registry • Access to a downloadable library of patient education tools to assist in compliance with 10 evidence-based measures • System-generated patient and physician letters detailing the patient’s risk factors and recommendations for better bone health • Benchmarking reports allows us to compare our results against the aggregate results of all Own the Bone participants • E-Newsletters
Own the Bone® : Benefits 9 • Web-based training • Registry webinar trainings held every other month • Registry training videos available at ownthebone.org for subscribers • Exchange of best practices among participants through ongoing webinars • 40% Discount on National Osteoporosis Foundation patient education materials • Public relations tools • Press Release templates • Special Own the Bone Participant Logo
