“..consistently seeing significant episode savings”

“After multiple in-house efforts to control ever escalating spine costs, [our plan] engaged Spine Care Partners, LLC to implement their spine care pathway and platform in upstate NY. We have piloted this program in Patient Centered Medical Homes and our own version of Accountable Care Organizations across several communities. We are consistently seeing significant episode savings for back and neck conditions with excellent patient and provider satisfaction. The spine program was relatively easy to implement...”

“They bring high-value solutions to the low-value situation in spine care.”

“The Spine Care Partners Spine Care Program is evidence-based and enables practitioners to follow leading guidelines. Their workshops and tools also enable practitioners to consider the whole person in patient care. And they focus on high-quality care in the early stages, rather than only intervening with invasive procedures at the end stage. They bring high-value solutions to the low-value situation in spine care.”

Robert Cole, MD

“improved access to care... quality ...and markedly improved the patient care experience.”

“The spine program has improved access to care, enhanced the quality of evaluation and treatment, and markedly improved the patient care experience. At the same time, its presence is reducing costs associated with high-priced specialty care and imaging while improving outcomes. It has made my work of caring for those with neck and back pain much simpler and more satisfying.”

“..the “Grandslam” for improving quality and access to care.”

“After our first presentation by Spine Care Partners, I knew we had the right team to assist us with our spine and back care program. Tom Neuner and John Ventura are population health management visionaries. They have come up with an innovative program and hit the “Grand slam” for improving quality and access to care, lower cost and health improvement for our patients. Our experience with Spine Care Partners has been one of the easiest and most satisfying and productive experiences of any vendors or consultants.”

Mariah Stump


“..this should be a required CME for all primary care providers.”

“The training presented by the [Spine Care Partners] was absolutely outstanding! As primary care providers are on the front lines, our knowledge can influence downstream chronicity of pain and decrease unnecessary costs, and it is up to us to rise to the occasion of this chronic pain crisis we face. This CME helps bridge the gap and helps prepare primary care providers for our current pain management crisis by equipping us with the tools and strategies to make an integrative management plan which encourages self-care at the outset.”
