The musculoskeletal system, often referred to as the locomotor system, is a complex network of muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, and joints that provides the structural framework for our bodies and enables movement. It plays a vital role in supporting and facilitating our physical activities, from the simplest gestures to the most complex athletic performances.
This system is not only essential for mobility but also crucial for protecting vital organs, providing stability, and maintaining overall body posture. It is the intricate interplay between these components that allows us to stand, walk, run, and perform a wide range of actions, making the musculoskeletal system a cornerstone of our daily lives and physical well-being.
It’s no wonder that when things aren’t working well in this vital system, it can dramatically impact quality of life.
Musculoskeletal health conditions encompass a broad spectrum of disorders and ailments that affect the muscles, bones, tendons, ligaments, and joints in the human body. These conditions can range from common issues like arthritis, osteoporosis, and back pain to more complex and rare disorders.
The PMCM Solution
In the realm of orthopaedic injuries and the musculoskeletal space, navigating complex medical conditions can be a daunting journey. However, there’s a beacon of hope in the form of personalised medical case management (PMCM) services, and we’re proud to uncover new research leading the way to cutting-edge solutions.
Our commitment to improving the lives of patients suffering from orthopaedic injuries is underscored by our recent study, “Clinical Utility of Personal Medical Case Management for Orthopaedic Injury Patients.” This study, conducted between 2018 and 2021, offers profound insights into the efficacy of PMCM services in the realm of orthopaedics.
Key Findings of the Study:
Change of Diagnosis: The study revealed an impressive 26% rate of change in initial diagnoses among the 473 cases analysed. This shift in diagnosis often led to a change in treatment recommendations, highlighting the importance of precise medical guidance.
Change of Treatment: An astounding 63% rate of change in treatment recommendations showcased the significant impact of PMCM services. Patients benefited from recommendations for conservative or interventional/procedural approaches to treatment.
Patient Satisfaction: Medix’s commitment to patient care shines through with a stellar patient satisfaction rating of 4.8 out of 5. An overwhelming 96% of patients expressed their willingness to use the PMCM service again, with a similar percentage recommending it to others.
Medical Procedures Avoided: The study demonstrated that 29% of patients managed to avoid medical procedures, including surgeries. This not only reduced the physical burden on patients but also contributed to a noteworthy reduction in medical costs for 23% of patients.
Adherence and Cost Reduction: Patients’ adherence to the new treatment recommendations was a remarkable 93%, emphasising the trust and confidence they place in Medix’s PMCM services.
