MSK conditions affect greater than 50% of Americans each year, have the greatest level of over-provisioned procedures and surgeries, and cause one of the highest levels of disability. “Not many people appreciate that the quality-adjusted life year (QALY) impact of hip osteoarthritis actually exceeds that of chronic diabetes,” said Dr. Nwachukwu. “BICMD deeply understands why MSK care is a top priority for our clients. We have therefore strategically grown our MD orthopedic network as well as formed meaningful channel partnerships with companies like FIGUR8 to best meet these needs. We are eager to share relevant insights among a larger audience through our upcoming webinar focused on MSK.”

BICMD aims to improve the quality and appropriateness of care by ensuring that expert medical advice is at the center of care delivery. BICMD’s innovative telehealth platform creates a digital front door providing direct access to the nation’s elite medical minds.
