The Organization

The Alberta Bone and Joint Health Institute (ABJHI) is a highly respected not-for-profit organization whose strength is turning knowledge into better care for people with bone and joint health conditions. ABJHI uses the best evidence available to develop innovative products and concepts that improve health care service delivery.

ABJHI provides consulting services to help health care agencies and providers implement change, measure results, and improve the quality of care for Albertans suffering from bone and joint injuries and disorders. These services include designing and evaluating evidence-based continuums of care, brokering the relationships required to advance bone and joint health care, providing project management services, and supporting both change management and the implementation of continuums of care.

ABJHI is developing an Alberta Bone and Joint Health Registry (ABJHR).  The ABJHR will build the technical platform to enable an integrated dataset to create new research, knowledge and innovations to improve Albertans’ quality of life and function. The ABJHR will be developed in modules, starting with shoulder care. ABJHI plans to have the full, comprehensive ABJHR launched by 2025.

ABJHI’s Bone and Joint Health Registry will:

  • – be comprehensive in engaging with and collecting data from stakeholders across the continuum of care, including patients and across the public and private sectors;
  • – improve ease of access to high-quality data for research purposes;
  • – be transparent in processes for data acquisition, security, privacy and governance;
