USBJI Summit Focuses on Best Practices

The U.S. Bone and Joint Initiative (USBJI) will hold a summit on “Best Practices in Patient-centered Musculoskeletal Care,” Nov. 18–19, 2013, at the Washington Court Hotel in Washington, D.C. The conference is the second in a series of biennial summits for the leadership and staff of musculoskeletal healthcare professionals and patient organizations, government officials, and insurance and industry representatives.

The topic of best practices is important and highly relevant in the current climate of healthcare reform. As the cost of musculoskeletal disease in the United States approaches $1 trillion annually and unprecedented changes in the delivery of health care are occurring, the determination of best practices and their delivery in cost-effective, patient-centered programs is key.

The USBJI Best Practices Summit will feature lectures by almost two dozen experts from many different disciplines involved in the care of patients with musculoskeletal disease. Meeting attendees will also have opportunities to participate in discussion and breakout groups focused on implementing best practices in different care settings.
