Decision Support Tool Used to Investigate High Frequency of Hip and Knee Surgery
The McCaig Institute research team’s decision support tool was put to practical use for the first time as Alberta Health Services sought insight into the high rate of hip and knee replacement in the province’s southern rural area.
AHS’s Bone and Joint Health Strategic Clinical Network engaged ABJHI to supply the data needed to run a simulation. The McCaig Institute researchers entered the data into the tool and ran the simulation. ABJHI produced a report on the findings.
