Tap Into Real-Time Best Practices

Integrated Mechanical Care’s outcomes-accountable™ musculoskeletal care and related orthopedic solutions grew out of the McKenzie® approach to Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT)—one of the most researched conservative care strategies in the world for the last 25 years.

However, unlike other MDT-based programs, IMC’s care model is transdisciplinary, learning-system based, and outcomes-assured™. Diagnostic and therapeutic methods of McKenzie® origin are enhanced on a just-in-time (JIT) basis as the Company’s Big Data analytics, outcomes-driven machine-learning systems™, web crawlers, and human intelligence teams identify and deconstruct unexpected clinical successes and setbacks across served markets and deliver evidence of new best practices.

The most visible portions of this high-tech, transdisciplinary approach are the Company’s (1) scientifically-validated, psychosocially-based health coaching services, (2) technology-enabled quality assurance and grand rounds processes, and (3) semantically-labeled knowledge management system.

Leverage Continuous Learning

IMC and COSPT’s transdisciplinary, learning-system based care model ensures every patient encounter is meticulously documented and contributes to ever-improving industry-leading economic, clinical, and humanistic outcomes.

Rely on Evidence-Based, Transdisciplinary Solutions

To continually advance orthopedic thinking and practice, IMC targets high-cost, poorly diagnosed, and debilitating orthopedic conditions and designs groundbreaking multidisciplinary interventions from an evidence-based portfolio of musculoskeletal care and population health management strategies “to create the greatest good for the greatest number.”

The Company’s bio-psychosocial approach reflects IMC’s understanding that biological, psychological, and social factors influence human pain and function—especially in the context of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

Focus on the Entire Healthcare Value Chain and Care Continuum

Building on this gold-standard clinical foundation, IMC works up and down the Healthcare Value Chain and across the Continuum of Care to ensure that:

  1. MSD sufferers are identified in biometric screening programs, triage centers, onsite clinics, primary care practices (PCPs), and pre certification programs;
  2. reliable diagnoses are made before treatment strategies are selected;
  3. rapid referrals, rapid resolution, reduced pain and improved function are the orders of the day;
  4. employees return to work satisfied with their healthcare experiences, and capable of heightened productive capacity, productivity, and socioeconomic contributions;
  5. Group Health, Workers’ Compensation, and Disability programs are designed to optimize MSD patient outcomes;
  6. the economic, clinical, and political incentives of healthcare stakeholders are aligned around MSD patient interests; and
  7. MSD-related healthcare information, financing, administration, and delivery systems interoperable (so health industry stakeholders have access to the right information at the right time).
