Many employees have musculoskeletal (MSK) conditions such as chronic back or joint pain. These commonplace ailments are why MSK claims are consistently a top medical spend driver for employers. 

Recent research has uncovered a phenomenon called the “depression-pain dyad” where chronic pain increases the risk for depression and that depression increases the perceived severity of pain. For better long-term outcomes, both of these conditions need to be addressed. 

Learn how Simplot, one of the largest privately held food and agribusiness companies in the nation, implemented a comprehensive digital health solution to lower medical spend and significantly cut depression and anxiety rates. 


Learning Objectives:

-Learn how the depression-pain dyad is creating a cycle of pain, isolation, and depression for your workforce

-Examine the barriers to providing recommended musculoskeletal care and how to overcome them

-Gain insight into how Simplot chose and implemented a comprehensive digital musculoskeletal care solution that reduced MSK pain better than opioids, cut depression and anxiety rates in half, and addressed high medical spend by avoiding 2 out of 3 surgeries
