Musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions, including low back pain, are a top spend for most employers. Worse, about 30% of that cost is due to unnecessary, wasteful and variable care, often resulting in poor outcomes for the patient.
Is it possible to obtain more efficient care and better outcomes for MSK conditions that afflict your employees? The answer is decidedly Yes!
Positive outcomes are more likely when an evidence-based Standard Care Pathway is followed. Unfortunately, many employees looking for pain relief are given treatments that can send them down a path to sub-standard care. The resulting costs – in time, treatment, pain, and out-of-pocket costs — is a difficult journey, not to mention the direct and indirect costs for the employer.
In our May 7th Luncheon Program, three clinical experts, who understand how the current healthcare system often leaves employees vulnerable, discouraged and unsure of what to do next, will take a deep dive into this thorny issue. Their interactive discussion will provide useful insights regarding benefits strategies to facilitate appropriate MSK treatment options that can lead to better outcomes and lower costs.
