Osteoarthritis affects almost two-thirds of aging adults. When knee or hip osteoarthritis pain limits daily activities, patients and clinicians must decide if joint arthroplasty surgery is indicated. This PCORI-funded research designed a patient-clinician decision report that includes predicted surgical outcomes based on national data. The report was implemented and evaluated among 6000 patients at 12 sites. Qualitative and quantitative evaluations of the decision report's impact on care will be presented.
