Wellbe Releases First Annual “Joint Replacement Benchmark Report”

joint-reportMadison, WI — Wellbe, Inc., creator of the Guided CarePath for Total Joint Replacement, today announced the results of the first annual “Joint Replacement Benchmark Report,” a survey of 100 hospital orthopedic departments, benchmarking their practices in total joint replacements for hips and knees.

“Orthopedic service line managers have new opportunities for growth in the aging boomer population, but are simultaneously facing threats of reduced reimbursement and increased competition pressures,” said James Dias, CEO of Wellbe, Inc. “We hope this report will offer orthopedic directors new exclusive insights to help them measure themselves against their peers.”

One highlight of the report is that 79% of hospital orthopaedic departments are participating or planning to participate in a joint replacement registry. Those who read the FREE report will also learn:

  • The 4 major challenges orthopedics departments are struggling to overcome
  • What target dates are most popular for collecting functional outcomes data
  • Which national initiatives are top priority for 2014
  • How the majority of hospitals are staffing for patient coordination/navigation roles

Only participants in the survey have access to the final results. Interested hospitals can participate and get their copy at www.orthoserviceline.com/benchmark.
