Surgical Alternatives and Patient Path Analysis

Patient well-being is top of mind for all healthcare providers.  Understanding patient treatment patterns is crucial to being able to recommend alternative paths to musculature surgical events.  Doing so not only improves patient outcomes, but also reduces risks to the providers as well as reduction in costs to the payers.  The patient and provider also avoid unnecessary re-admittance patterns relating to post-surgical events including: opioid addiction, anxiety, and long term rehabilitation procedures.
