OTB (Own The Bone)

The American Orthopedic 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 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, orthopedic surgeon, or osteoporosis specialist.
