Mobilizing Efforts in Osteoporosis Management

Mobilizing Efforts in Osteoporosis Management

The number of Americans age 65 and older will more than double by the year 2050. This cohort will include 20 million people 85 and older — potential osteoporosis patients who today are between 25 and 45 years old. Although past their prime bone-building years, they are not yet candidates for bone-density tests or drug therapy. Many should never need these interventions — provided that low-cost preventive strategies are implemented, starting now. Sound health care policy is directed toward ensuring that negative trends are not allowed to continue unchecked. This supplement is intended to achieve that end.

Highlights:

  • Current and Emerging Treatment Options
  • Identification of Patients at High Risk for Fracture
  • Implications of the Medicare Modernization Act for Care of Osteoporosis Patients
  • Managed Care and Best Practices
