Spine 10 x 25
Did you know that spinal disorders cost the USA $600 billion a year?
What is Spine 10 x 25?
The Spine Foundation has established the Spine 10 x 25 Initiative, a national movement aimed at achieving a 10% reduction in U.S. spine-related disability by the year 2025. Our cause will favorably impact patients and their families, providers, employers, third-party payers, disability insurance carriers, taxpayers, and society in general.
Why Spine 10 x 25?
According to recent studies, spine-related impairment is the most common cause of disability in the United States. Combining direct care, disability benefits, employer costs and patient expense brings the annual financial impact of spinal disorders to $600 billion. That is why reducing spine-related disability must become a national priority. Achieving a 10% reduction in spine-related disabilities by 2025 (Spine 10 x 25) is a reasonable goal. This is why the Spine Foundation needs all of your support to build sponsorship and provide contributions to help us reach this worthy goal.
- Phase 1 - Raise provider and public awareness of the public health issue. Define the scope of the problem through analysis of VA, Work Comp, and other related data. Forge alliances with payers, political leaders, and other spine-related organizations
- Phase 2 - Create a Coalition Task Force with the charge to Develop tactics to change the playing field. Continue to establish a strong national imperative.
- Phase 3 - Indoctrinate all stakeholders and initiate the designed changes, at the local and national level
