Health System Trends: Transforming Musculoskeletal Care with a Digital PT-first Model

With more than 50% of US adults suffering from back, shoulder, knee and other joint pain1, musculoskeletal care (MSK) costs the U.S. healthcare system an estimated $420 billion2—more than any other chronic condition. While evidence demonstrates the benefits of a therapy-first approach, implementing guideline-driven care that leverages technology across health systems comes with many challenges.

This recorded webinar, presented in partnership with Kaiser Permanente and Corewell Health, provides tactical strategies for incorporating digital tools within PT-first pathways to drive improved outcomes, create a better patient experience, and reduce downstream costs.

Watch this recorded webinar to learn:

  • Best practices for care delivery of MSK, and specifically low-back pain patients.
  • Practical strategies to operationalize new workflows and incorporate rehab in primary care and orthopedics.
  • How MedBridge’s Patient Engagement solution can support digital engagement of MSK patients.
