In early 2012, a Fortune 500 brand-name manufacturer made the decision to reduce the burden of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) on employees, dependants, and retirees. The Company asked Integrated Mechanical Care (IMC) to run a pilot program for an onsite clinic focused on preventing and resolving orthopedic challenges.  The pilot program was so effective that, within three months of its launch, the manufacturer decided to set up eight (8) clinics—four in onsite family health centers and four in standalone treatment rooms. Since then, these outcomes-accountable™ musculoskeletal condition management sites have saved the manufacturer an average of 25% or more on orthopedic expenditures on covered lives served within the Group Health Benefit Program. In 2012, 2013, and 2014, that equated to more than $1,300 per orthopedic patient per year…or more than $1 million for every 1,000 IMC patients.
