HSS EmployerConnect Benefits Employers

Reduce total musculoskeletal spend – Musculoskeletal disease is the largest single health care expenditure across all employers. We can partner together to impact the direct and indirect costs tied to these conditions.

Improve presenteeism – Among those who have come to HSS for a second opinion, 26% received a nonsurgical recommendation.1 While surgery benefits many people with orthopedic issues, it’s not right for all patients. Having the wrong procedure or undergoing an unnecessary surgery is not only bad for your employees’ health but is also incredibly costly for employers. HSS EmployerConnect provides a way to get in front of your employees earlier in the treatment process to ensure they are getting the most appropriate treatment and excellent care.

Steer to in-network providers – HSS EmployerConnect will direct your employees to in-network providers based on condition and other preferences and will assist with securing appointments to ensure that they are seen by high quality HSS providers.
