In 2006, Dr. Michael O’Boyle advocated the GFP to Bon Secours St. Francis Health administrators after attending an AO course entitled “Co-Management of the Geriatric Fracture Patient.” The program's goals were simple: improve patient and family satisfaction while decreasing length of stay and overall costs. Today, Bon Secours St. Francis Health boasts a co-managed care approach that improves communication between orthopaedic surgeons and physicians.
