Get our study summary on the cost savings of a digital treatment program for hip and knee osteoarthritis and learn about the outcomes compared to a face-to-face model.

In this Study Summary

We report the results of a costing analysis of a new digital platform for delivering first-line care, including disease information and physiotherapy to patients with OA, and compare this with an existing face-to-face model of treatment. The results show that the digital model, overall, costs around 25% of the existing face-to-face model of care.
