Research shows that telemedicine interventions can effectively help patients with obesity lose weight. However, many orthopedic providers lack the capacity to offer comprehensive weight loss support to their patients.
This case study analyzes the use of Prescribe FIT, a full-service remote monitoring and virtual lifestyle health program, by JIS Orthopedics for patient weight management.
Prescribe FIT helped participating patients achieve clinically meaningful reductions in weight. Patients also reported improvements in non-scale metrics such as pain, mobility, A1C, and energy.
The program was also a cost-effective ancillary revenue stream for the practice. JIS Orthopedics collected over $1 million in insurance reimbursements from 4 RPM CPT codes.
Orthopedic practices interested in a weight loss solution for their patients may have success by partnering with an evidence-based program like Prescribe FIT.
