Work is underway to develop an inventory of community clinics across Ontario that accept patients who receive bundled care.

Through an applied Health Research Question to ICES, the RCA has obtained NACRS Clinic Lite data on rehab utilization, clinical features and patient-reported outcomes. The data is currently being analyzed and, over the next several months, the RCA will issue a survey to community and outpatient rehab clinics to identify which sites accept externally referred bundled care patients for post-hip/knee arthroplasty. Survey results will ultimately promote a better understanding of the current state and thus bring further context to the data. The resulting summary document will form a repository of sites that accept bundled care patients and will be posted to the RCA website.
