A quartet of U.S. healthcare groups are teaming up to take a closer look at the long-term effectiveness of medical implants, launching independent clinical studies in order to evaluate devices and their outcomes for patients, the group announced this week.

Comprised of 3 large U.S. health systems and one of the nation's largest health benefits companies, the consortium plans to conduct independent, long-term studies on "everything from heart problems to bad knees and hips," according to a press release.
