Teladoc Health Offers Clients Access to Musculoskeletal Health with Hinge Health
Commercial partnership adds digital physical therapy to virtual care leader’s whole-person approach
PURCHASE, NY, October 6, 2023 -- Teladoc Health, the global leader in whole person virtual care, has entered into a reseller partnership with Hinge Health to give Teladoc clients the opportunity to secure musculoskeletal (MSK) care and support from Hinge Health through their relationship with Teladoc Health. The move helps Teladoc Health clients offer a broader range of virtual care services to their employees through simplified contracting and management.
“The linkages between musculoskeletal pain and primary care, chronic conditions, and mental health are evident” said Kelly Bliss, Teladoc Health US Group Health President. “By bringing these additional capabilities to clients, this partnership allows both organizations to work together to more fully meet the needs of our clients' populations.”
According to the World Health Organization, an estimated 126 million Americans are affected each year by MSK disorders. Treatments, in the United States, cost approximately $505 billion annually in addition to indirect costs related to absenteeism, mental health conditions and obesity.
“We empower people with clinically effective tools to help them reclaim their lives from pain. Our comprehensive program, on average, reduces pain by 68%, and demonstrates 42% fewer individuals starting on opioids with a 67% drop in surgery consideration,” said Dr. Jeff Krauss, Chief Medical Officer, Hinge Health. “Complementing Teladoc’s whole-person approach, our program offers a user-friendly experience, backed by a multidisciplinary human care team, that can be personalized to address pain throughout the body.”
