They have noted overall improvement in back pain for their patients while achieving major reductions in surgeries, diagnostic imaging and other invasive procedures. In our 2011-2012 measurement period SpineZone saved Sharp Community Medical Group over $400,000 in additional back pain related costs. Working together since 2008, one might project our overall cost savings to be as much as $3.4M for our patients with back pain. SpineZone was uniquely founded by surgeons who are committed to providing the least invasive methods to improve our population’s back conditions and return each patient to the best level of physical and emotional function and highest quality of life. I am highly encouraged by the outcomes provided by SpineZone over the years and it will remain a key resource to the physicians and patients of Sharp Community Medical Group.”
Our experience with the 10 week program has been strong enough that we allow referral of patients with back or neck pain to SpineZone without the need for prior authorization. More than half of the patients who start the program will successfully complete all 20 visits.
Our patients have good clinical outcomes, they’re very satisfied with the program, and Sharp Community Medical Group is avoiding the need for more invasive and more expensive treatments. SpineZone is a valuable partner with Sharp Community Medical Group in helping to provide high quality, cost-effective care.”
