This study will review retrospective electronic health record data from Essentia Health to identify characteristics of patients at risk for low-impact hip fractures, and inform the development of infrastructure necessary to assist in identifying patients for primary and secondary prevention. Two groups will be reviewed: 1) patients referred for DXA scans to test for osteoporosis and osteopenia; and 2) patients age 65+ treated by the St. Mary’s Medical Center trauma service and other Essentia Health Duluth Clinic clinicians for hip fractures, with a focus on low-impact hip fractures.
Dr. Ana Fernandez is the Principal Investigator. Colleen Renier, BS, Melissa Harry, PhD, and Kristy Lundberg, RN, are Co-Investigators.
