The pocket card material was prepared by Stratis Health and the Oklahoma Foundation for Medical Quality, the Quality Improvement Organization Support Center for Patient Safety, and adapted by IPRO under contract with CMS. The pocket card lists prophylactic options for 10 different surgeries, including intracranial neurosurgery, general surgery and elective total hip replacement.
