The Quartz Health Solutions family of entities is a leading health plan provider servicing 350,000 members in Wisconsin and parts of Illinois, Iowa, and Minnesota.
In analyzing claims data, Quartz identified low back pain as a consistent driver of both medical utilization and cost.
Quartz’s medical leadership had the vision to expand beyond traditional care to provide an evidence-based, member-centric option for medically appropriate members struggling with back pain.
Quartz partnered with Kiio to pilot Kiio for Low Back Pain, customized to Quartz and white-labeled as MobileBackSM. The pilot was structured to rigorously examine Kiio’s impact on member outcomes, medical utilization, and cost of care.
