Clara Maass Medical Center participates in Medicare’s Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) program, which promotes high quality, cost efficient, and better coordination of care for patients undergoing hip and knee replacement surgery. Clara Maass Medical Center is working closely with its physicians and post-acute care providers to improve quality and coordinate care from the initial hospitalization through recovery. The CJR program permits facilities to enter into financial gainsharing relationships with its collaborators to share in the success of the program.

The Hospital’s written policy for selecting CJR Collaborators is available for download here.
