DES MOINES, Iowa, Sept. 20, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Tempus Innovations, creator of next generation cost containment solutions for the Property and Casualty (P&C) industry, has partnered with Regenexx to reduce high-cost musculoskeletal surgeries to benefit patients, providers and payers. Tempus ION is the trademark network that provides access to the Regenexx interventional approach to healing musculoskeletal conditions without surgery.
Regenexx is a national best practices clinic network that specializes in minimally invasive interventional orthopedics, a new medical specialty that uses precise image-guided injection of orthobiologics capable of healing tissue. Regenexx cell-based procedures effectively intervene on 70% of all orthopedic injuries and conditions where surgery was previously the only solution. This approach enables employers and payers to save up to 80% on orthopedic costs, all while providing best-in-class outcomes. This process offers self-funded corporations the only real-time savings approach for reducing their healthcare expense trajectory for one of the top healthcare spend categories.
"Tempus is proud to partner with Regenexx to provide injured workers with an alternative to orthopedic surgery," said Greg Gaughan, CEO/Co-founder of Tempus Innovations. "Tempus ION provides payers and injured workers with access to non-surgical treatments that reduce spend, are less invasive with less risk, and provide faster recovery and return to work."
Companies who partner with Regenexx not only report a significant drop in the need for high risk orthopedic surgeries, they show less absenteeism and an enhanced benefits package. In fact, when given the choice of a traditional surgical procedure or a Regenexx procedure, employees have chosen to pursue Regenexx over 99% of the time. When combined, these two factors create a win-win scenario for companies in offering innovative yet cost-effective benefits to their employees.

As the provider of the most advanced non-surgical orthopedic care available in the United States, we are committed to making the latest advancements in medical innovation available to produce the best-possible patient outcomes for Tempus' customers," said Jason Hellickson, CEO of Regenexx.
