Zimmer Helps Physicians and Hospitals Negotiate Emerging Health Care Business Challenges Through New Consulting Programs
Date:2/16/2011

SAN DIEGO, Feb. 16, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Zimmer Holdings, Inc. (NYSE: ZMH; SIX: ZMH), a global leader in musculoskeletal care, today introduced two new consulting service programs designed to help physicians and hospitals address emerging challenges in the delivery of orthopaedic care.  Offered through Zimmer's wholly owned subsidiary, Accelero Health Partners, the Hospital Advantage and Practice Advantage programs are designed to help orthopaedic practices increase market awareness, boost efficiency and profitability and improve patient outcomes and satisfaction.

"Over the coming years, successful physicians, hospitals and companies will be required to deliver more value in health care than has been delivered in the past," said Dr. Jeffery Pierson, M.D.  "A key way in which orthopaedic practices can differentiate themselves and deliver greater value is through the development of programs that offer a unique value proposition to patients while also driving efficiencies."

Recognizing these challenges, Zimmer has developed Hospital Advantage and Practice Advantage programs.  These consulting service programs are designed to assist hospitals and surgeons in developing more efficient and successful orthopaedic practices.

The Practice Advantage program is designed to differentiate a physician's practice, focusing on boostin
