Summary The American Orthopaedic Association initiated the Own the Bone (OTB) quality improvement program in 2009. Herein we show that the data collected through this program is similar to that collected in other large studies. Thus, the OTB registry functions as an externally valid cohort for studying fragility fracture patients. Introduction The American Orthopedic Association initiated the Own the Bone (OTB) quality improvement program in 2009 to improve secondary prevention of fragility fractures. In this study, we present a summary of the data collected by the OTB program and compare it to data from other large fragility fracture registries with an aim to externally validate the OTB registry. Methods The OTB registry contained 35,038 unique cases of fragility fracture as of September, 2016. We report the demo- graphics, presenting fracture characteristics, past fracture history, and bone mineral density (BMD) data and compare these to data from large fragility fracture studies across the world. Results Seventy-three percent of the patients in the OTB registry were female, Caucasian, and post-menopausal. In 54.4% of cases, patients had a hip fracture; spine fractures were the second most common fracture type occurring in 11.1% of patients. Thirty-four percent of the patients had a past
