How Can Digital Care Programs Aid Those With Chronic Musculoskeletal Pain?

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Jeffrey Krauss, MD, chief medical officer of Hinge Health and Stanford Clinical assistant professor, about the efficacy of a 12-week digital care program aimed to reduce lower back and knee pain in a real-world population.
Chronic musculoskeletal pain costs the United States hundreds of billions of dollars each year. Now, with the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, healthcare providers are tasked with providing optimal care to patients while minimizing human contact as much as possible.

On this episode of Managed Care Cast, we speak with Jeffrey Krauss, MD, chief medical officer of Hinge Health and Stanford Clinical assistant professor. In a study he co-wrote entitled “Digital care for chronic musculoskeletal pain: 10,000 participant longitudinal cohort study,” researchers evaluated the efficacy of a 12-week digital care program aimed to reduce lower back and knee pain in a real-world population.

According to authors, the results support the prospect for digital care programs to serve the overwhelming number of musculoskeletal pain sufferers worldwide.
