Reducing Orthopedic Costs and Suffering

Apply a Clinical Solution to Musculoskeletal Challenges

Integrated Mechanical Care (IMC) offers clinical services and other musculoskeletal solutions that help orthopedic patients recover from musculoskeletal challenges with unprecedented speed and the industry’s lowest recurrence rates.

In fact, at one year post discharge, fewer than 10% of IMC’s patients experience a recurrence of symptoms—compared to an industry average of more than 50%.  That’s an 80% reduction in recurrence rates!

IMC’s musculoskeletal condition management programs outperform every known strategy for resolving orthopedic conditions and managing orthopedic costs.

With IMC’s help, healthcare purchasers, third-party administrators (TPAs), and third-party payers (TPPs) don’t need to look for savings through insurance benefit exclusions, discounted fees, narrow networks, prior authorization requirements, pre-certification programs, care-withholding incentives, or onerous reimbursement procedures.

These administrative strategies metaphorically “squeeze the water balloon,” giving the illusion of cost savings but actually causing payer costs to bulge out elsewhere. They don’t help patients recover. And, without recovery, the direct and indirect costs of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) continue to escalate.

Get Patients Better…and Keep Them That Way

IMC’s clinical, evidence-based approach offers patients with MSDs a reliable, efficient, and effective musculoskeletal assessment and condition-reversal process rapidly resolves their orthopedic disabilities, optimizes their musculoskeletal health, and empowers them to be happier and joyfully constructive members of their communities.

In other words, IMC’s approach to the management of MSDs works.

The results?

For Self-Insured Employers (SIEs), that means employees return to work more rapidly—delighted with their care—and with heightened productive capacity, productivity, and earnings contributions.

For Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), that means beneficiaries rapidly resolve their orthopedic disabilities, reverse their pain, and regain their physical function—all through a program proven to significantly reduce recurrences, so the total cost of care (TCOC) is a fraction of historic levels, and so quality performance scores soar.

For Home- and Community-Based Service (HCBS) Providers, the societal burden of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) is reduced, and socioeconomic development gets the jumpstart it deserves.

Help MSD sufferers live more joyful, purposeful lives

Integrated Mechanical Care (IMC) offers clinical services and other musculoskeletal solutions that help patients recover from musculoskeletal challenges rapidly, with minimal discomfort, and with lasting results.

The Company ensures that patients with musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) have access to the world’s most reliable, efficient, and effective musculoskeletal assessment and care process.

This unique process optimizes musculoskeletal health and empowers MSD sufferers to overcome pain and limitations in function, so they may live more joyful and constructive lives.

Rely on a clinical approach

IMC’s approach to the management of MSDs is unprecedented in its effectiveness. That’s because the Company’s musculoskeletal solutions are clinically-driven—a refreshing departure from today’s administratively-driven healthcare cost-management fads.

IMC’s unique approach to  Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy (MDT) incorporates best practices from the biological, psychosocial, and socioeconomic sciences. That’s because individuals who suffer from MSDs don’t just suffer physically. Their painful and often crippling conditions can take an enormous toll on how they view themselves, what roles they play in their families and communities, and whether they can earn a living and provide for their loved ones.

With scientifically validated and fully integrated MDT, health coaching, and quality assurance modules, IMC’s outcomes-accountable™ conservative care is the right choice for the vast majority of MSD patients.

And IMC’s rapid patient assessment, triage, and referral programs ensure MSD sufferers who are candidates for other orthopedic solutions (e.g., chiropractic, physical therapy, injections, surgery) are referred to the very best healthcare providers—with referral speeds unparalleled in the communities that IMC serves.

Ask about a partnership

IMC works in partnership with a broad range of health industry stakeholders to minimize the human and socioeconomic costs of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs)—for example, Self-Insured Employers (SIEs), Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and Home- and Community-Based Service (HCBS) Providers.

However, the Company is best known for its work helping Fortune 500 and S&P 600 companies improve outcomes associated with their number-one healthcare spend: musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

With IMC’s help, these brand-name companies don’t need to look for savings through administrative strategies such as benefit exclusions, discounted fees, narrow networks, prior authorization requirements, pre-certification programs, care-withholding incentives, or onerous reimbursement procedures.  (These administrative strategies don’t help patients recover and, instead, give the illusion of cost savings. In the absence of a true musculoskeletal solution, the direct and indirect costs of MSDs continue to escalate.)

IMC’s clinical, evidence-based approach ensures that patients with MSDs have access to a reliable, efficient, and effective musculoskeletal assessment and condition reversal process that optimizes musculoskeletal health and empowers them to be happier and joyfully constructive members of their communities.

In other words, IMC’s approach to the management of MSDs works. IMC patients recover at rates unprecedented worldwide.

The result?

Dramatic improvements in economic, clinical, health, health-related quality of life, and satisfaction outcomes across health industry stakeholders.
