Total knee arthroplasty (TKA) is the most common inpatient elective procedure performed in the United States, yet there is considerable variation in the provision (and nature) of rehabilitation following this major surgery. Postoperative protocols are typically one-size-fits-all, whereas each patient is unique, with his or her own goals, priorities, and reasons for considering TKA. Meanwhile, data collected in routine practice are typically used to justify payment or demonstrate the value of services rather than to inform care with individual patients. In this webinar, we present an alternative use for routinely collected outcomes data: to inform prognosis and augment clinical decisions.

Join HPA The Catalyst to discuss using health system data to monitor total knee arthroplasty rehabilitation. This webinar will be presented by Andrew Kittelson, PT, DPT, PhD. Dr. Kittelson is a rehabilitation science team member at the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus.

Educational objectives:

  • Provide an overview of prognosis for a variety of outcomes following TKA.
  • Discuss which outcomes offer the most value in terms of monitoring progress in rehabilitation.
  • Review the benefits and pitfalls of clinically collected data.
  • Provide an example of how clinically collected data can be used to provide a framework for monitoring rehabilitation and informing individual-level decisions.

Speaker: Andrew Kittelson, PT, DPT, PhD

Dr. Andrew Kittelson Andrew is a rehabilitation science team member at the University of Colorado. Dr. Kittelson's research focuses on improving care for people with knee osteoarthritis and people undergoing total knee replacement, through 1) a better understanding of the clinical condition, and 2) improved decision-making in day-to-day practice. Dr. Kittelson is interested in combining data collected in routine clinical practice with analytical strategies to better inform decisions in rehabilitation settings.
