HIP AND KNEE READMISSIONS
The Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) monitors and measures national complication rates as a benchmark for high-quality care. Again in 2018, HOI was well below the national threshold. For hip and knee replacement procedures, HOI had the lowest readmission rate in the nation.

HIP AND KNEE COMPLICATIONS
     CMS measures the complication rate following elective hip and knee replacement within an applicable time period. Through stringent preventive measures, HOI achieved a better (lower) than expected complication rate.
Low THA/TKA Complication Rate
Complications measured by CMS include:
• Acute myocardial infarction (AMI), pneumonia or sepsis/ septicemia/shock within seven days of admission;
• Surgical site bleeding, pulmonary embolism or death within 30 days of admission;
• Mechanical complications or periprosthetic joint infection/ wound infection within 90 days of admission.
