    • “For years we have had great success thanks to the Accelero Team with aligning our Total Joint Program. The team found that some of these successes naturally contributed to our other program populations such as the hip fracture population. After committing to the Accelero Fracture Assessment process we quickly learned that we had some rollover successes, but many areas that could use the same attention that was offered to the Total Joint program. The Accelero Team gave us the insight and view into our program that is difficult to “see” from the inside. We have walked away from that assessment with attainable goals and quick forward progress to better the care for our Hip Fracture population.”
    • “The Accelero Hip Fracture Assessment is a fantastic set of outside eyes. This team knows the evidence, assists to work with the providers to best understand the workflow, and do not miss one layer when it comes to the complexity of the processes for these patients. The information they provided our team gives us actionable next-steps and a sturdy platform to step from. The assessment is a value-added component for the improvement of our hip fracture care.”
    • “The Accelero team provides a systematic approach to best understand the unique workflows that hip fracture care offers. The team offers robust experience and success with the work they do both nationally and internationally. Their process is thorough and leaves no step unnoticed. Not only are they thorough- the on-site team is approachable and willing to meet with all of the stakeholders. This process allows a team to handle both the science and the human components of process improvement.”
    • “The Accelero team approaches their program assessment in a way that makes the invisible, visible. The team helped us to understand how we can best make the right thing to do the EASY thing to do.”
