Musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction, inclusive of back pain, is the top cause of disability worldwide and one of the most common reasons for physician visits globally. The MSK sector is also one of the most expensive in the world, with utilization continuing to grow.
Unfortunately, most care delivered across the sector is high-cost and low-value. There is a significant unnecessary and inappropriate surgical rate (e.g., up to 50% of spine surgery is inappropriate), a high rate of unnecessary X-ray and MRI imaging, as well as a significant number of unnecessary ER visits. At large, evidence-based medicine is too often not followed.
Value-Based MSK Care not only meets these challenges by providing better costs, but also a better experience. Value needs to be brought to patients, payers, providers, and society to truly have the next level of value-based care. Join this webinar to move the the value-based care discussion beyond economics and how health plans can enhance care quality and improve outcomes for their members with MSK issues or other chronic conditions.
