Scholar Project Database

Assessing the Capacity of Puerto Rico Hospitals to Manage Scoliosis in the Pediatric Population

Medical School/Institution:
Project Location/Site: Puerto Rico
Key Outcomes:
The projected data goes against what the actual data demonstrated. The actual demonstrated that orthopedic clinics may not be affected by the economic crisis as theorized. However, all disciplines in not only orthopedics but all other specialties must be analyzed and included in national databases such as Dartmouth Atlas of Health Care and the National Healthcare Quality and Disparities Report from the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality to help identify gaps and measure progress.
