    New Edition Published: “The Burden of Musculoskeletal Diseases in the United States” (BMUS)

    Date: March 16, 2016

    Researchers, healthcare professionals, policy makers and the public will discover helpful content in the BMUS, a data resource produced by the United States Bone and Joint Initiative in collaboration with a number of organizations, including ASBMR.

    The BMUS is available in two forms, an executive summary for general audiences and advocacy efforts, and a full report that includes prevalence, health care utilization, economic burden, ICD-9-CM codes and more for each musculoskeletal condition. New to the user-friendly web interface is content that has been expanded where possible to include new information on children and adolescents, aging, military, gender, and ethnicity. The user-friendly interface provides downloadable data/fact sheets for use in your presentation slides, reports and advocacy efforts.
