HOPCo and The Center for Bone & Joint Surgery Announce Partnership to Transform Musculoskeletal Care in Southeast Florida

Palm Beach, FL (January 13, 2021) – Healthcare Outcomes Performance Company (HOPCo), the national leader in musculoskeletal practice management and value-based care solutions, and Palm Beach-based The Center for Bone & Joint Surgery (CBJ), have partnered to create an innovative musculoskeletal care platform established to develop unique clinically-integrated partnerships with musculoskeletal practices and other physicians, health systems and payors throughout the Palm Beach Market, with the intent to expand the platform in other markets in South East Florida. 

Utilizing HOPCo’s proprietary care management platform, software tools and analytics, this new partnership will provide value-based health care solutions to improve care outcomes and patient satisfaction. HOPCo and CBJ have already begun working with additional musculoskeletal practices and other care partners to develop a clinically-integrated platform for population health, bundled payment and other unique value-based care arrangements and are in discussions with health systems, payors and practices to expand its care network throughout South Florida.

“The Center for Bone & Joint Surgery has an over 25-year track record of providing outstanding care to patients in the Palm Beach area,” said Wael Barsoum, MD, HOPCo’s President and Chief Transformation Officer. “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.”

The Center for Bone & Joint Surgery is a multi-location practice devoted to diagnosing and treating musculoskeletal injuries and diseases.  CBJ utilizes the expertise of 27 providers and offers leading-edge treatments in orthopedics, sports medicine, joint replacement surgery, trauma and fracture repair as well as spinal conditions.

“We have always made it our mission to provide personalized care to our patients,” said Michael Morgan, CEO of The Center for Bone & Joint Surgery. “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 healthcare, which is creating more value and better outcomes for more patients.”

This partnership further expands HOPCo’s unique service offerings throughout the State of Florida.  In 2019, HOPCo partnered with Southeast Orthopedic Specialists to create a musculoskeletal clinical care platform for the North East Florida and the Gulf Coast.  Earlier this year, HOPCo also announced a joint venture with Ascension Florida, one of the nation’s leading hospital systems, that included the development of the first musculoskeletal-focused CIN in the State of Florida and the first orthopedic specialty hospital located in the Jacksonville area.
