Recognizing the significant impact of osteoporosis, The Joint Commission has worked since 2005 to develop performance measures in osteoporosis across the care continuum. This work has led to the development of 3 measures, which may be used at any time to meet hospital quality improvement goals. Plans are in place to submit to the National Quality Forum for endorsement as national consensus standards. The measures were developed under the guidance of a 12 member Technical Advisory Panel.
