Manage osteoporosis to limit disability

Musculoskeletal conditions are the second largest contributor to disability, according to the World Health Organization.

The Osteoporosis Management in Women who had a Fracture (OMW) HEDIS® star measure assesses women 67–85 years of age who suffered a fracture and had either a bone mineral density test or received a prescription to treat osteoporosis within six months of the fracture.
