New Analysis: Virtual Musculoskeletal Solutions Improve Health Outcomes and Lower Costs

June 7, 2024
The Peterson Health Tech Institute
Summary
A new analysis by the Peterson Health Technology Institute (PHTI) highlights the efficacy and economic benefits of virtual musculoskeletal (MSK) solutions in treating various conditions. The independent evaluation reveals that virtual solutions can deliver comparable clinical outcomes to in-person physical therapy (PT), expanding access to care and potentially reducing healthcare costs. The report assessed eight virtual MSK platforms in three categories, including app-based exercise therapy, physical therapist-guided solutions, and remote therapeutic monitoring (RTM) supplements. The findings suggest that physical therapist-guided solutions offer substantial clinical and economic benefits, potentially yielding significant savings if widely adopted. Additionally, the integration of virtual MSK solutions into traditional medical benefits could enhance their value by facilitating early intervention and reducing high-cost care.
