Draft Hip Arthroplasty Performance Measurement Set

AAHKS formed a Hip Arthroplasty Work Group to identify and define quality measures towards improving outcomes for patients undergoing a hip arthroplasty.  This project utilized the expertise of practicing orthopaedic surgeons and other clinicians to create explicit, valid, and feasible quality measures that can be used to monitor and improve the quality of orthopaedic care.  The measures evaluate outcomes and appropriate preoperative, intraoperative, postoperative care and which are critical to improving patient function and quality of life.
