Own the Bone Alliance Osteoporosis and fragility fractures have been identified as major public health problems by the US Surgeon General. Approximately 80% of fragility fracture patients do not currently receive appropriate osteoporosis care1.

The American Orthopaedic Association developed Own the Bone as a quality improvement program to address the osteoporosis treatment gap and prevent subsequent fragility fractures. Through a clinically-proven, web-based patient registry and 10 prevention measures, Own the Bone provides tools and helps institutions to establish a fracture liaison service (FLS) in which a care coordinator (normally a nurse, nurse practitioner or a physician assistant) ensures that post-fracture patients are identified and receive appropriate evaluation, diagnosis, and treatment, under the supervision of their primary care physician, orthopaedic surgeon or osteoporosis specialist. www.ownthebone.org/about-own-the-bone.aspx
