Spreemo Health is successfully tackling one of employers’ largest cost drivers, musculoskeletal conditions, where unnecessary surgeries and inappropriate procedures result in significant patient harm and employer expense. Patients who suffer from musculoskeletal conditions often require advanced imaging procedures to inform additional treatment, including potentially, invasive surgery and injections. Despite the prevailing belief that these imaging procedures are commoditized, leading clinical research conducted in collaboration with Hospital for Special Surgery has demonstrated that significant diagnostic errors within musculoskeletal imaging are pervasive, with error rates as high as 43%, leading to inappropriate and costly care while causing significant harm to patients. Spreemo Health connects employees and their families to Radiology Centers of Excellence – providers that have demonstrated superior diagnostic accuracy – within their communities all across the country, ensuring that each patient receives the most accurate diagnosis at the start of his or her care journey. As a result, Spreemo Health, named to Deloitte Technology Fast 500 for two years in a row, helps employers achieve significant savings on medical spend through a reduction in inappropriate and unnecessary care, proven by independent ROI studies conducted by various Fortune 500 clients.
