Aggregating data from the nation’s largest de-identified medical database, the 2023 ESO Trauma Index reflects insights from over 968,538 hospital records from 596 hospital systems between January 1st and December 31st, 2022. Its goal is to establish best practices to help improve patient care in these essential areas. 

Join industry experts and Trauma Index authors this and every third Thursday of the month for the ESO Data Café webinar series. They will discuss the Index’s metrics, offer insights into their research, and recommend ways to improve outcomes at your organization.  

This month, we’re learning more about the average time it takes to surgically repair hip fractures in the older adult population. According to the 2023 Trauma Index, 94% of this older adult patient demographic received surgical intervention within 24 hours of fracture, and 99% received intervention within 48 hours.  

How can your team ensure they’re hitting this benchmark?    

Here are a few recommendations from the Index regarding improving outcomes for older adult patients needing surgical repair for hip fractures:  

  • • Surgically intervene within 48 hours of hip fracture to substantially reduce morbidity and mortality in the older adult population. 
  • • Time surgical repair of hip fractures to decrease patients’ length of hospital stay.
