Kaia Health, announces Kaia Gateway and Premium Partners, a complete MSK care solution for all US employers and health plans.

The solution is based on a large randomized controlled trial (RCT) suggesting how a treatment path combining digital therapy, personalized health coaching and a collaboration with medical providers achieved better outcomes than standard of care.

Kaia Health’s complete MSK care solution will feature a claims-based ROI for each client and support preventative, acute, chronic and presurgical care for total spine, hip, knee, shoulder, hand, wrist, foot, and ankle. These capabilities will be fully rolled out by January 2022.

Introducing Kaia Gateway

Kaia Gateway is the new front door for all MSK patients, and accessed via Kaia Health’s existing digital MSK program.

A clinical triage algorithm will screen each patient and direct those at risk of needing more invasive or intense treatment to a Kaia Health medical provider for case review. An AI-enabled escalation algorithm will monitor patients longitudinally for clinical and behavioral patterns, mitigating the risk of unnecessary elective, and often costly, surgery.

The algorithms feature Kaia Health’s patented Motion Coach computer vision technology, which, using a smartphone, tracks thousands of data points on a patient’s body and provides real-time exercise feedback.

“Kaia Gateway creates an unprecedented level of understanding of MSK patients and their progression. The algorithms now include Motion Coach™ data in addition to self-reported and adherence data. Motion Coach™ thus now drives our clinical decision making in addition to patient engagement. This richer dataset will offer a more informed user case review and allow Kaia Gateway to make better patient choices in the treatment app or via one of our partners.”

— Justin Yang, Kaia Health’s US Chief Medical Officer

Premium Partners: a Deeper Level

Kaia Health coaches refer out to other medical services within employers’ ecosystems. Premium Partners represent a deeper level of partner integration. They will be closely tied to Kaia’s existing MSK treatment and have access to detailed treatment history, including Motion Coach insights and disease progression. It will also feature other care solutions, including digital interventions, PT and telemedicine.
