In a nutshell: This study aimed to assess the effect of an integrated hip fracture co-management model on length of stay, cost per case, time to surgery, treatment of osteoporosis, utilisation of preoperative echocardiogram, mortality and readmission. It found that the integrated medical-surgical co-management model was associated with reduced length of stay, costs, time to surgery and increased initiation of appropriate osteoporosis treatment.
