Physician-led practice to leverage the platform for value-based care and research initiatives

Bethesda, MD – October 5, 2023 – The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics (CAO), one of the nation’s largest providers of orthopaedic and musculoskeletal care, today announced it has selected the PatientIQ platform to automate the collection and analysis of patient outcomes data and enhance quality across the practice. The cloud-based platform will serve as CAO’s backbone technology for patient-reported outcomes, value-based care, and research-based initiatives.

The selection of the PatientIQ platform follows a comprehensive search for a technology partner that could demonstrate expertise within orthopaedic care delivery and an unparalleled ability to derive actionable insights from outcomes data at scale. PatientIQ will integrate directly with CAO’s electronic health record to standardize patient-reported outcomes collection for its major orthopaedic interventions and, in doing so, enable CAO to standardize quality measurement across providers and locations.

“At the core of The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics is our absolute belief in providing the best patient experience, and gaining comprehensive, actionable patient outcomes data is essential to that mission,” said Richard Robinson, Chief Executive Officer, The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics. “With its overwhelming adoption within orthopedics, PatientIQ was the right partner to ensure we always provide the best care to the communities we serve.”

CAO has prioritized personalized service and superior care for patients across Virginia, the District of Columbia, and Maryland since its founding in 2013. More recently, CAO has emerged as a leader in value-based care delivery, prioritizing high-quality care at the lowest cost. As such, CAO will also leverage the PatientIQ platform for patient care management within its value-based care programs.  


“Part of leading with value is being able to manage patient care and assess outcomes in real-time,” said Kendra Roark, RN, BSN, Sr. Director Patient Care Navigation, The Centers for Advanced Orthopaedics. “The PatientIQ platform will empower us with the technology necessary to do so effectively.”

CAO also plans for PatientIQ to serve as the core tool for its research foundation, providing physicians with easy access to robust data sets and advanced analytics that will drive clinical discovery.

“It’s always exciting to work with like-minded organizations who believe in the power of patient outcomes data to advance clinical care,” said Matthew Gitelis, Chief Executive Officer, PatientIQ. “We look forward to furthering CAO’s ability to comprehensively assess and improve quality across the practice.”
