Solera Health launches its new Musculoskeletal (MSK) offering through digital MSK therapy solutions SWORD Health, Kaia Health and Sworkit.

Through its growing network of evidence-based digital interventions, Solera’s new MSK offering will address a continuum of musculoskeletal conditions through sub-clinical services spanning preventative wellness, injury and chronic condition management, as well as preoperative and postoperative rehabilitation. 

MSK disorders include conditions and injuries affecting the bones, joints, and muscles and are a contributor to disability. According to a study published in BMC Medicine, individuals with an MSK condition have a nearly 20% higher risk of developing a chronic disease, compared to those without such conditions.

“MSK diseases affect half of adults in the U.S. and nearly 75% of senior citizens. Despite the enormous need for MSK treatment, the market is largely underserved. Physical and occupational therapy are essential for prevention and recovery; however, many people who need it don’t receive treatment due to limited accessibility and high cost. In fact, MSK conditions account for $600B in medical expenses per year, 20% of medical diagnoses, and 80% of Workers Comp claims.”

Through a single touchpoint for condition management and streamlined engagement, Solera’s matching algorithm ensures consumers are paired with the right solution to optimize cost and outcomes. Solera’s digital MSK offerings not only help solve significant physical therapy access and adherence issues but have been shown to drive outcomes that are as good or better than in-person physical therapy.

Included with all program offerings is a real-time data and analytics engine, thereby allowing measurement of progress and care. Easily accessible, convenient, and paid for by the consumer’s health plan, Solera provides payors and employer partners with a digital front door to tested and proven condition management programs impacting the most prevalent and costly chronic conditions. 

“Musculoskeletal care is not a one-size-fits-all solution category, and Solera’s MSK offering addresses the diverse needs of a member population with network partners serving multiple levels of acuity. We’re excited to premiere our MSK offering with these advanced, digital musculoskeletal care solutions. Our collaboration with SWORD Health, Kaia Health, and Sworkit, support our ongoing mission to curate and deliver best-in-class digital and in-person interventions that help members achieve their health goals,” Langowski continues.
