Navitus Health Solutions, a full pass-through pharmacy benefit manager (PBM), announces its partnership with SWORD Health to bring its virtual musculoskeletal solution to Navitus’ clients and their plan members nationwide.

Navitus’ partnership with SWORD Health is a major expansion of its comprehensive suite of solutions to include clinical-grade care for the most complete range of musculoskeletal issues: preventative, acute, chronic and postoperative care, according to a media release from the company.

“While traditional physical therapy can be effective, it can also be costly, inconsistent and inconvenient for many plan members. At Navitus, we believe there are more advanced ways to treat musculoskeletal pain.

“We’ve partnered with SWORD Health because they share our commitment to innovative solutions. We’re excited to offer our clients a world-class, digital musculoskeletal therapy solution that enables members to take control of their pain management.”

— Julie Olson, DNP, MS, RN, CQIA, Vice President of Clinical Innovation at Navitus

Navitus’ partnership with SWORD Health will help members overcome musculoskeletal pain by:

  • Providing remote access to physical therapists who diagnose, educate and coach members to better health.
  • Using sensor-based technology to give real-time feedback that is more accurate than human eyes.
  • Treating all major points for chronic pain and post-surgical rehab so that everyone with musculoskeletal pain can get the help they need.

“Our mission is to free two billion people from physical pain, and this would not be possible without partners like Navitus. Their out-of-the-box, next-generation thinking about pharmacy benefits shows that they understand the changing world of healthcare services. They are deeply invested in innovation and clinical efficacy which is the foundation of SWORD. Together, we will make the lives of members richer and more productive.”

— Virgílio Bento, Founder and CEO, SWORD Health
