More effective care patterns
Greater satisfication for clinicians & patients
This facet of the program involves data collection, analysis, piloting promising practices, educating clinicians and patients, and incentivizing the utilization of evidence-based care.
Tools for clinicians and patients, ranging from workflows, after-visit summaries, patient-reported outcomes, and algorithms combined with resources to educate patients about low back pain will expand knowledge and lessen provider-burden.
Education & Training
Clinical spine care training is available until 12.31.2023. Starting in 2024, we will be rolling out a new and exciting option that involves custom-built interactive training modules - designed by subject-matter experts in multiple disciplines.
