Comprehensive Spine: Tying Together Core Elements Through Patient Navigation

It is not uncommon that patients seeking care for back and neck pain will report a lengthy and often frustrating process of getting relief. Many will have been referred to a spine specialist by a primary care physician (PCP) - who is often unclear of who the right specialist really is (pain, physical therapy, physical medicine/rehab, surgery, chiropractor, etc). The solution = offering a Comprehensive Spine program, not just one focused on appropriately mining patients for curative spine surgery. A Comprehensive Spine Center can take these patient referrals, regardless of where they really belong, and shepherd them through the right steps with the help of navigation, patient engagement, multiple care path availability and multispecialty physician alignment. Join us for a webinar on how to tie together all of your spine program operational components with navigation/specialty care coordination, manage outcomes, create true comprehensive spine care, and so much more.

Attendees will understand:

  • The Core Elements of Comprehensive Spine Care
  • Clinical, Operational, Physician Engagement, Outcomes, Education, Finance
  • Common Barriers to Success
  • 10 High Impact Benefits of Patient Navigation
