Better Orthopedic Care

E-mail Print PDF

PBGH is pursuing a number of initiatives to improve orthopedic care. Hip and knee replacements are increasing in volume and contributing to the rise in health care costs. PBGH has supported the California Joint Replacement Registry (CJRR), a pilot project designed to collect and share data to provide credible feedback to orthopedic surgeons, hospitals and patients about their treatment decisions, quality of care, and patient outcomes. The long term goals are to improve treatment decisions and care delivery for patients receiving joint replacements. The CJRR is a joint undertaking by PBGH, California HealthCare Foundation and the California Orthopedic Association. The CJRR will be piloted at 4 sites during early 2011, with plans for expansion later in 2011. For more information, contact Kate Chenok at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
