Own the Bone® program

LewisGale Regional Health System has implemented the American Orthopaedic Association’s Own the Bone® program. The program is aimed to better identify, evaluate and treat patients that suffer from an osteoporosis or low bone density-related fragility fracture—a broken bone that results from a fall from standing height or less. The program brings focus to the severe health implications of fragility fractures and the multi-faceted approach hospitals or clinics can employ to ensure patients receive the most comprehensive care.

According to the National Committee for Quality Assurance, only one in five Medicare patients has received the osteoporosis care needed after a fracture. Own the Bone® is a national quality improvement program that incorporates 10 measures for reducing future fractures and provides LewisGale Regional Health System with immediate feedback on performance to measure success and help benchmark our facilities with other facilities.

With Own the Bone®, LewisGale Regional Health System reduces this treatment gap and ensures that our patients with fragility fractures are screened and appropriately treated for low bone density or osteoporosis.
