At CICN, outcome metrics drive clinical decisions and accountability. This approach improves predictability in outcomes and cost of care, reduces unnecessary care and procedures, and creates a standardized approach specific to diagnosis. These factors set the stage for CICN being among the first musculoskeletal health groups to move to value-based care.

The following slideshow shows several broad results of our metric-driven system. The following successes were achieved in 2016 and 2017.
Average visits to resolution reduced by 30-50% compared to usual care.
Patient copay costs for CICN care reduced nearly 50% compared to usual care.
Patient lost productive time due to care reduced by nearly 40% compared to usual care.
Implementation of software tools improved outcomes and consistency of outcomes over two years, setting the stage for the ability of CICN to move to value-based.
