A Case Study: How Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital Implemented Own the Bone™

In a recent Webinar, Dr. Marc F. Swiontkowski describes his experiences working alongside rheumatologist Dr. John Schousboe to integrate Own the Bone at Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital. Prior to enrollment, only 12% of Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital patients admitted for a hip or pelvic fracture received appropriate screening and subsequent care. 

Within Park Nicollet Methodist Hospital’s first year of enrollment in the program, the percentage of patients receiving follow-up care increased to 80%, assisted by the appointment of a discharge-planning nurse to handle appropriate patient screening and data entry.
