Why MSK Should Be a Top Priority for Your Organization and How to Evaluate Digital Solutions

Each year, one in every two adults will have a musculoskeletal (MSK) issue. MSK issues cost over $344 billion in employment and medical costs annually in the US. The pain associated with MSK problems is a top reason for opioid prescriptions and lost work days. MSK pain also takes a significant toll on employees’ mental well-being.

Demand for virtual health care options has created an opportunity to innovate your wellness strategy, better control your costs, and improve employee satisfaction by adding effective digital MSK solutions to your health care ecosystem. However, figuring out what you need is not always easy given the different digital MSK care options available. Join the conversation to gain a deeper understanding of key considerations and practical ideas for selecting the best option for your employees and organization.  Join this webinar to learn:

  • Reasons why addressing MSK issues in your workforce is imperative
  • The link between MSK pain and employee mental well-being
  • The essential elements of effective MSK care
  • Digital MSK options and what to consider
  • How to evaluate a digital MSK vendor

Power of Prevention: Impactful Virtual Therapy for Behavioral Health Needs

When seeking behavioral health services, more often than not, employees are met with a number of obstacles including provider shortages and limited availability, long wait times, high costs, and the stigma of seeking care. In an effort to better support employees and realizing the power of prevention, many employers are making behavioral health offerings a priority.

Returns on investment in behavioral health treatments far outweigh the costs — each dollar invested to scale up treatment yields a return of $4 in improved health and productivity.

In this webinar, attendees will learn about:

  • The accelerating need for behavioral health services
  • Key components to an impactful, preventative behavioral health strategy
  • How an integrated behavioral health solution can deliver clinically proven treatment outcomes while driving overall health care costs down
