Integrated Chronic Pain Program (ICPP)
AMI has been at the forefront of chronic pain management since the inception of the ICPP in 2003. Our proprietary algorithms identify and unmask the hidden costs associated with chronic pain patients. Customized integrative medicine treatment plans have been proven to reduce both global costs and pharmaceutical dependency through the increased utilization of evidence based attended therapies.
As chronic pain rates have increased over the last several decades, so has the use of opioids in response, resulting in an epidemic of opioid use, overuse, and abuse. An AMI Integrative Chronic Pain Program targets populations with musculoskeletal pain who have already turned to opioids.
AMI’s chronic pain management team collaborates and coordinates with all physical medicine and behavioral health providers specializing in the treatment of chronic pain to shift the model of care from a high-cost, high-tech, pharmaceutical/surgical delivery model, to a low-cost, low-tech, hands-on approach.
Providing conservative care options, especially from the onset of a case, has been shown to reduce downstream services and associated costs. Cost savings are typically related to decreased imaging, surgery, injection procedures, emergency room visits, specialist visits, hospitalizations, and opioids.
AMI was the first physical medicine company to receive waivers granted by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) to provide federally approved reimbursement for massage therapy, acupuncture, nutritional counseling, and pharmaceutical consulting.
