Hungerford, MD, chief of the division of orthopedics, his mission was clear and no less daunting: Upgrade Mercy's total joints program so it could compete with those at nearby behemoths University of Maryland and Johns Hopkins. Sure, Dr. Hungerford had run successful total joints programs at previous institutions, but this time he brought in a powerful and prestigious partner — a consulting service created by a top orthopedic instrument and implant maker. Now in its 8 th year, the partnership has worked wonders. The results speak for themselves. Mercy's key total joints indicators have decreased significantly: costs by 20%, blood transfusion rate by 75%, Total Support for Total Joints Consultants from top orthopedic manufacturers can guide you to same-day replacement success. Daniel Cook | Executive Editor • GOOD DEAL Consulting services bring clinical and financial expertise to the table and help you identify ways to grow your joints program.
