This unique clinical care model goes beyond digital physical therapy to treat the whole person and to create lasting change.
“For many, surgery is the most costly and risky healthcare event experienced in their lifetime. By adding Hinge Health to the SurgeryPlus® provider network, we have a combined opportunity to impact almost 10 million people to achieve better clinical outcomes and avoid unnecessary surgical procedures,” said Hinge Health CEO and Co-founder, Daniel Perez.
Employer Direct Healthcare’s CEO, John Zutter, is encouraged by the partnership between SurgeryPlus® and Hinge Health. “Of course, surgery is always the last resort in any care plan, but for those patients that need it, quality and affordability are critical factors to consider when selecting a surgeon,” Zutter elaborated. “Together we uniquely enhance the MSK patient experience with a high-touch, accessible, and personalized care plan that ensures an outcome-oriented and cost-controlled result. In addition, for clients with or evaluating SurgeryPlus®, we can add this broader scope of services without any additional contracting, streamlining the process for our clients.
