Spine-related symptomology continues to be the second most common reason people seek the help of primary care providers. Unfortunately, the associated disability and direct/indirect costs incurred by suffering patients, their employers, third-party payers, and society continue to be staggering in terms of amount and impact. Studies have shown that early navigation and educated, systematic and medical support can mitigate inefficient utilization of the healthcare system and stave off biopsychosocial maladaptive chronicity.

Traditional access to the spine specialist and medical team is failing patients with spinal disorders as the number of providers diminishes, reimbursement contracts, and third-party payer restrictions mount. Patients require an early and reliable connection to a triaged support system to prevent unnecessary suffering and self-imposed disability.

This recorded webinar series is designed for all spine-related disciplines and provides attendees with an understanding of the current challenges and problems, introduces the concept of spine triage, and develops a foundation from which a tiered navigation program can be customized and implemented.
