The first of its kind in the world, MAP to MOTION will link information from all the different bone and joint services that Albertan patients need.
An information platform centered around bone and joint health
Taking classic patient registries to the next level
With your help, we’re making a strategic investment in prioritizing research, learning, and innovation of bone and joint health. Patient registries are powerful tools to organize health information, understand clinical variation and effectiveness, track diseases, and more. With the MAP to MOTION, we aim to take this once step further by amplifying the exchange of information between participants, care providers, and researchers.

Help Build The MAP to MOTION
We're raising $750,000 this year to support research, learning, and innovation that will improve the lives of thousands of Albertans suffering from pain, loss of mobility, loss of work, social isolation, and low quality of life.
When it comes to bone and joint conditions, there’s a gap in information between the public health system, community health providers, and your health at home. The MAP to MOTION is our chance to fix that.
Help Set the Stage
Essential data points are needed to make a difference for the nearly 200 bone and joint conditions affecting Albertans
80% of people are out seeking non-operative services from private rehabilitation offices, paying out-of-pocket or with private health insurance. Those who cannot afford to pay experience varying levels of support and quality of care.
Health at Home
Rehabilitation and recovery are usually a lengthy process without immediate results. And the COVID-19 pandemic is an additional burden on already long medical wait times in Canada. Weeks to years go by between medical appointments for bone and joint treatments and there is no information on how people are doing.
Balanced Wants and Needs
In recent years, people are looking to take over more control of their health. Health decisions are just now incorporating the values, goals, and current life situation of a person in addition to their clinical data.
