Today Force Therapeutics announced that Marshfield Clinic Health System (MCHS), an integrated delivery network in Wisconsin, has selected its digital care management platform to improve access to care, reduce cost and quality variation, and increase patient-reported outcomes collection. Force’s provider-driven platform uses customized care paths and virtual education and physical therapy to engage orthopedic patients in an effective journey.
MCHS is one of the largest private group medical practices in the country, with 11 hospitals, 60+ Marshfield Clinic locations, and more than 1,600 providers serving predominantly rural communities across Wisconsin. The Force platform will help MCHS orthopedic surgeons extend their reach by connecting joint replacement patients to their care teams via remote monitoring and messaging tools. Real-time status updates will help clinicians track patient progress, enabling proactive outreach to those who require extra support, education, or care plan modification.
MCHS is a leader in rural healthcare, and the Force platform’s virtual preoperative education and physical therapy care plans support its goal of providing access to high-quality care where and when patients need it. This technology also saves patients co-pays and transportation costs, as it reduces the need for in-person appointments.
