Blue Health Intelligence Studies Innovative Musculoskeletal Therapy Solution: Claims Data Supports Airrosti’s High Value Care

Blue Health Intelligence (BHI) published an article confirming Airrosti’s methods improve care efficiency, reduce total cost of care, and limit the utilization of high-cost imaging and surgeries for musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries.

Airrosti, a large healthcare provider group headquartered in San Antonio, Texas specializes in improving care delivery for MSK conditions. In an independent study using BHI claims data, Airrosti demonstrated a 44% reduction in total cost of care. Airrosti attributes this efficacy to their evidence-based approach and strict adherence to established clinical guidelines. The BHI data also showed a 76% reduction in high-tech radiological procedures and a 51% reduction in opioid prescription utilization.

The BHI study found that Airrosti patient episodes of care were 60% shorter than musculoskeletal patients managed elsewhere, demonstrating Airrosti’s ability to impact absenteeism for employer plans.

John Thresher, Vice President of Strategy at Airrosti, shared that insurance carriers, employers and population health groups are all looking for opportunities to reduce total cost of care and the BHI study helped Airrosti deliver value to all parties. “We’re able to validate our outcomes data with an employer group, a plan sponsor, or a payer, and demonstrate the value we can provide,” Thresher said.

Studying the BHI data also improved the clinical effectiveness of Airrosti’s approximately 250 providers. “It’s helped us resolve utilization management issues and referral management issues, among other things. Because we have the visibility, we’re able to implement some additional efficiencies to continuously drive down total cost of care,” said Thresher. This continuous effort has allowed Airrosti to reduce total episodic cost by 7% per year for the past three years.

More About Airrosti: Founded in 2004, Airrosti specializes in delivering high quality, outcome-based musculoskeletal care. Airrosti has providers throughout Texas, Washington, Ohio, and Virginia.
