National Leaders in Healthcare

One of Three Collaborators with the California Joint Registry

Hoag Orthopedic Program is one of a small number of institutions that measure functional outcomes from surgery, which is how you feel and can move after surgery. HOI is one of only three clinical centers that partnered to create the pilot registry for joint replacement patients - the California Joint Registry. Through a web-based system, each patient can share about their recovery in the privacy and leisure of their own home. HOI uses this data to continuously improve the care we provide to our patients.

Leader in Bundled Payments

We at HOI are proud to have collaborated with McKesson and Aetna to create the first automated implementation of Integrated Healthcare Associations (IHA’s) bundled payment model, designed to decrease healthcare costs by improving practices and standardizing care. The first of its kind in California and one of the first in the nation, the bundling system has created a new level of accountability and transparency in medical care. We strive to remain at the forefront of emerging healthcare technology in an effort to continue delivering efficient care.

Our talented orthopedic surgeons, nurses, physical therapists and staff are ready to provide you with expert level of care to get you back to doing the things you love.
