More than one million total joint replacement surgeries occur each year, and the high-volume procedure is performed by surgeons across the country with varying patient outcomes.

In an effort to quantify the quality of care it provides to its patient population, DMOS leverages the PatientIQ platform to collect and measure patient-reported outcomes. Once collected, the platform analyzes how DMOS performs against national benchmarks and organizations nationwide.

In addition to total joint replacement, DMOS leverages PatientIQ to collect and measure patient-reported outcomes in more than seven other orthopedic specialties as part of its strategic priority to identify best practices and areas of quality improvement.

“Patients have a choice when it comes to receiving clinical care and our outcomes are a natural part of their assessment,” said Rich Green, Chief Operation Officer, DMOS. “The PatientIQ platform enables us to prove the quality of our services, including being amongst the nation’s very best at total joint replacement.”

“DMOS’ achievements are not only notable for the organization, but they also represent the clear value of leveraging patient-reported outcomes data,” said Matthew Gitelis, CEO, PatientIQ. “We’re proud our platform continues to yield results for DMOS and quantifies the value of its clinical care.”

DMOS has identified statistically significant improvements in the shoulder, elbow, and spine-related patient-reported outcome measures:
