HANDS ON Total joint consultants can help you establish proven clinical pathways that cover the entire episode of care.   |   Pamela Bevelhymer, RN, BSN, CNOR

The Oregon Surgical Institute (OSI) is on pace to complete its 500th outpatient joint replacement of the year next month. Patients are ready to head home 6 hours after they walk into the facility in Beaverton, Ore., because staff know how to run an efficient, successful program that's growing right along with the same-day joints market. OSI's staff and surgeons got the program to where it is today because of their commitment, dedication and hard work, but the facility also received some major help along the way from a consulting program offered through an orthopedic equipment vendor. As the outpatient joints market continues to surge, an increasing number of the major players in the implant and instrument space are offering consulting help to facilities that need assistance launching or streamlining their programs. A vendor-run consulting program can serve as an invaluable resource if you're looking to launch, retool or even rebrand your facility's total joints program.
