Center for Quality & Patient Safety Research
At the Center for Quality and Patient Safety, part of NYU Langone’s Department of Orthopedic Surgery, we perform an array of research focusing on the importance of quality and patient safety in the delivery of musculoskeletal care. Below is a sampling of our current research activities. Learn more about our research findings in the Orthopedic Surgery 2019 Quality and Outcomes Report.
New Studies Focus on Patient Outcomes, Best Practices, Cost Control, and Reducing Risk
To raise the quality of orthopedic care for all patients, a multidisciplinary team of doctors at NYU Langone Orthopedic Hospital explores the most effective strategies for treating orthopedic diseases. Find out how this was accomplished along with optimizing patient safety and outcomes and controlling total costs.
Research Explores Pain Management Patterns to Minimize Opioid Prescribing After Orthopedic Surgery
The Department of Orthopedic Surgery recently completed an analysis of our opioid-prescribing patterns by physician and procedure type. Based on these analyses, our teams have begun to implement new protocols for reducing opioid prescribing. Learn more about some examples of this initiative.
