Why Modus
01.
Powerful forces constantly influencing physicians prescribing habits which lead to an epidemic of opiod abuse, disability and unncessary aggressive procedures.
02.
The fee-for-service system rewards more care rather than better care.
03.
The efficiency and quality of care received by patients varies tremendously.
04.
Providers' performance metrics are done retrospectively by analyzing billing claims data so there is no real-time feedback loop.
05.
Patients and payers have no access to credible high quality data on specialty providers performance.
06.
Payers and TFA's waste expensive resources attempting to manage utilization (eviCore).
07.
High skilled clinicians waste talent and energy on data entry to validate payments.
The Solution

Real time quality metrics; For the first time, Modus gives High Performance Provider Organizations the tools that they need to truly manage their own utilization (responsible autonomy) while focusing on patients’ functional outcomes and following best practices. Using Modus, providers will communicate using a common platform and achieve greater efficiency by focusing on the patient's highest functional outcome and will be financially incentivized based on patient outcomes.

Designed by a group of physicians, Modus gives providers realtime performance metrics and real-time feedback with clear visuals of clinical and functional data, so that they can make decisions based on value care in real time.

The Modus system includes algorithms that perform visual / quantitative synthesis of functional and clinical data.

The MODUS management approach ranks providers based on how well they provide value in 4 key metrics:
FOLLOWING BEST PRACTICES
IMPROVING PATIENT'S FUNCTIONAL OUTCOMES
PATIENT SATISFACTION
CONTROLLING COSTS
Scorecard
The Modus Payment model is based on our data driven scorecard that outlines each provider’s adherence to best practices, patient’s functional outcome, patient satisfaction, and cost of care.

OUR STORY MODUS™ is the creation of a Physical Medicine & Rehabilitation physician with the goal to provide world class quality at the lowest possible cost.

Spine pain represents a major source of unnecessary disability and tremendous costs. It is the most common industrial injury in the United States, involving 80% of Americans at some point in their lives and 31% at any given point in time.

Due to inappropriate and potentially harmful incentives of traditional fee for service payment, the use of spine surgery and/or epidural injections for people with spine pain caused the cost to skyrocket with poor functional and clinical outcomes . A recently published study of 23,918 visits showed that over the ten year study period, narcotic use increased by 50%, MRI’s increased by 56% and referrals to specialists such as surgeons increased by 105% without any significant improvement in outcomes.

MODUS brings an evidence based approach to the evaluation and treatment of spinal pain front and center. Our treatment and payment model provide accountability and empower high quality providers to give compassionate care based on scientific evidence. Modus creates a partnership between payers and providers and incentivizes doctors for making patient centered choices based upon the latest scientific information to achieve optimum cost effective clinical outcomes.
