Self-funded employers continue to experience unacceptable increases in their healthcare spend. Musculoskeletal (MSK) cost remain among the top three categories of this spend – and the most amenable to far less expensive “digital first” scalable solutions.

The Problem #1

Access

Access to high quality orthopedic care, and in particular covenient access, remains a major challenge. MSK injuries and conditions can occur at all hours of the day and night. Members often seek immediate care from an emergency department, urgent care facility or their primary care physician – three common pathways that are not only expensive but lead the member on the wrong care path from the start.

We offer a range of options starting with our Al-enhanced symptom assessment tool and self-care options, cascading to immediate access to specially trained health coaches, and when indicated, escalating to telehealth visits with orthopedic specialists. Upswing is a 24/7 on-demand, convenient and immediate access-ramp for all members that sets them on the correct care path from the start. 

The Problem #1

Unaccountable Reimbursement for MSK Services

For decades, employers have been responsible for bearing the cost of low value unnecesssry and even potentially harmful MSK services.  Further, they have also carried the cost of unanticipated complications of care and readmissions resulting in catastrophic claims and the expensive stop-loss coverage.

The Solution

Upswing Health

Upswing believes employers deserve accountability for their members health outcomes, stable and predictable annual MSK spend, and full transactional transparency. As such, we offer employers three partnership options for our services (1) a warrantied bundled payment for a package of our services over a defined episode of care (2) a per member, per month with utilization guardrails and (3) a risk-sharing (our risk)  arrangement for managing MSK services. 

The Problem #1

Follow Up

Healthcare providers simply do not have the time to closely follow and engage their patients on their healing journey and assure compliance with medical treatment. This can lead to protracted periods of convalescence with lost time and member productivity.

The Solution

Upswing Health

Upswing’s health coaches and integrated care management technology provide repeated and vital follow-up assessments and track the member’s progress with serial touchpoints providing real-time feedback to the member, their employer, and their primary care physician.  Our health coaches have specialized training in goal setting and motivational science-based principles to optimally engage the member on their recovery path. 

Upswing Health rethinks the most basic delivery pathways for MSK and is the ideal partner for self-funded employers.
We’ve demonstrated an average savings of over $600 per episode for our lead client-a very large self-funded employer-with an exceptional member experience.
