Improving Patient Outcomes for Joint Replacement

Improving Patient Outcomes for Joint Replacement

R. John Wright, MD, Clinical Director, Department of Orthopedic Surgery, presents information on a newly launched standardized process at Brigham and Women's Hospital that results in reliably better outcomes for joint replacement patients. From initial consult to treatment following surgery and follow-up calls after discharge, the process has shown similar early trends in reducing pain scores and length of stay and increasing patient satisfaction.
