Integrated Mechanical Care (IMC) offers unprecedented successes in reducing the volume, duration, and costs of disability cases.
Our orthopedic disability resolution experts are specially trained in orthopedic triage, health coaching, self-care, diagnosis, and treatment. Their multidisciplinary approach to MSDs has been proven superior to prevailing orthopedic practice patterns and includes best practices from a range of groundbreaking disciplines.
These include, but are not limited to:
Health Economics, Outcomes Research, and Comparative-Effectiveness Research (including methods pioneered by RAND, Milliman, and PCORI);
Evidence-Based Health Education, Coaching, and Chronic Care Counseling (including concepts pioneered and/or refined by the HealthSciences Institute);
Mechanical Diagnosis and Therapy® (including methods developed by Robin McKenzie and The McKenzie Institute International);
Positive Psychology and Flow (including approaches delineated by Mihaly Csikszentmihalyi);
Human-Asset Management and Human-Capital Portfolio Optimization (including performance assessment and professional development approaches advocated by Aon, Mercer, Towers Watson, and other human-capital consultancies);
Human Performance Optimization (including methods pioneered and advocated by the U.S. Department of Defense); and
Industrial, Management, and Quality Engineering methods (including methods advocated by Frederick Winslow Taylor, Peter F. Drucker, and W. Edwards Deming).
In world-class manufacturing facilities, the approach has generated upwards of a…
98% satisfaction rate with provider quality and care delivery;
85% satisfaction rate with program outcomes;
80% decrease in MSD recurrence rates vs. the historic baseline;
60% decrease in the duration of MSD care; and
40% decrease in MSD claims cost, measured in PMPM, versus the historical baseline.
IMC clinicians have unparalleled skills in reversing the psychosocial, physical, and financial setbacks that are common to individuals suffering from musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). We focus not only amelioration of pain and restoration of function, but also on improvements in productive capacity and motivation to contribute.
Our clinicians offer years of demonstrated successes in eliminating “yellow flags” (e.g., beliefs that perpetuate and exacerbate clinical suffering ), catching “red flags” (e.g., indicators of serious underlying conditions), making correct referrals to orthopedic specialists (e.g., for challenges of chemical or traumatic origin), and producing favorable patient outcomes (e.g., in challenges of a mechanical nature).
