Advanced Arthritis Relief Protocol

Non-Surgical, In-Office Knee Therapy

OVERVIEW

Integrative Practice Solutions (IPS) has developed an innovative clinical business model focused on resolving joint pain caused by osteoarthritis and/or injury. The Advanced Arthritis Relief Protocol™ (AARP Program) is a non-surgical, FDA approved treatment that is covered by both Medicare and commercial insurance.

PROJECTED INCOME AND PROFITS WITH THE IPS ADVANCED ARTHRITIS RELIEF PROTOCOL

The AARP Program follows a winning combination of fluoroscopic guided injections of hyaluronic acid, an at home physical therapy device, and the IPS OAide 3000™ Single Hinge Unloading Knee Brace.  When used in conjunction for a bilateral course of treatment, reimbursement figures can be estimated with the figures shown here.

Improve Your Clinical Outcomes

At IPS we have developed a clinical business model that offers near perfect patient outcomes with extraordinarily high patient satisfaction (A 92.7% success rate with patients demonstrating at least 50% decrease in pain with increased function and ability).

IPS Equipment Packages

IPS equipment packages include the hardware needed for the AARP Program and are designed for established clinicians/owners not yet offering osteoarthritis treatment as well as those opening a new practice. Comprehensive training and ancillary supplies are provided upon delivery of equipment.

Portable Mini C-Arm & Digital X-Ray Combination

With the addition of fluoroscopic guidance, clients gain the ability to offer arthrography as a diagnostic procedure. By bringing this equipment in-office, clients can now increase accuracy for more positive patient outcomes, add overall case profitability, and provide digital x-ray in a fully portable platform. This equipment is ideal for providers with multiple locations, or providers that perform rounds in hospitals or other medical facilities. This full-service AARP package includes a medical grade procedure chair/table, applicable accessories, training, and installation with a full one-year parts and labor warranty.

Remanufactured Mini C-Arm

This option provides costs savings for budget conscious practices as well as being perfect for clinics that do not have a need for portability or digital x-ray. Clients are still benefiting from the use of guided fluoroscopy. This full-service AARP package includes a medical grade procedure chair/table, applicable accessories, training, and installation with a parts and labor warranty.
