Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company and The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery have announced a partnership to develop a platform for musculoskeletal care in southeast Florida, according to a release.

The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery is a Palm Beach-based, multi-location orthopedic practice that specializes in orthopedics, sports medicine, joint replacement, trauma, fracture repair and spine injury. Combined with the proprietary care management platform of Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company (HOPCo), the partnership will strive to create a clinically integrated network of physicians in the Palm Beach market, according to the release.

“The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery has an over 25-year track record of providing outstanding care to patients in the Palm Beach area,” Wael Barsoum, MD, president and chief transformation officer at HOPCo, said in the release. “Their leadership team embraces the shift to value-based care, which makes them an ideal partner for us. We are excited to help them build the first of its kind musculoskeletal care platform in partnership with other leading musculoskeletal providers in the region,” Barsoum said.

“We have always made it our mission to provide personalized care to our patients,” Michael Morgan, CEO of The Center for Bone and Joint Surgery, said in the release. “The addition of HOPCo’s evidence-based care pathways and outcomes tracking analytics will allow us to provide more cost-effective care to our patients while still maintaining our personalized care approach. We see this partnership with HOPCo as a major step into the future of health care, which is creating more value and better outcomes for more patients,” he added.
