Dear VEP Providers,
Below is a link to a one-page handout on OP-21, the national core measure for PAIN MEDS FOR LONG BONE FRACTURE. Study it for 2 minutes to learn all you need to know about OP-21. Be aware that starting in January, carpal bones will be included.
Most of our EDs have median times that are better than the national average of 54 minutes. Some of our EDs are in the top 10% nationally with median times under 34 minutes! Our goal for 2016 is to have every VEP ED in the top 10%.
Bottom line: Treat any painful condition as soon as possible, not just long bone fractures.
