RxMatch was created to address and reduce the problem of medical over-treatment and the resulting healthcare costs. The over-treatment epidemic has a number of contributing factors and RxMatch aims to address each of them. These factors include, insufficient face-time between physicians and patients, a lack of patient engagement, and a lack of efficacy data for both operative and non-operative treatment options.
The RxMatch solution is a three-month program pairing each patient with a personal Health Coach to help them navigate the options, creating a SMART (Specific, Measurable, Achievable, Relevant and Time-bound) plan specific to that patient and creating a community support system. The Health Coach emotionally supports the patient in his/her journey and ensures compliance.
We believe that with patients actively participating in prescribed non-surgical treatments and engaged in a behavioral support program, the rate of over-treatment will decrease significantly.
