Motiva Health


Joined Vator on

Motiva Health specializes in a next generation, hands-on approach to onsite conservative care. We address the largest medical cost driver for employers, musculoskeletal disorders.

  • 16% of employer healthcare budget is consumed by musculoskeletal (MSK) care
  • A total of $874 billion was allocated to MSK disorders in the U.S. in 2015 (including treatment costs and indirect costs)
  • 290.8 million workdays were lost due to back and neck pain alone in 2012

This trend will continue to rise unless there is a better solution to MSK care.

Using a Direct Contract Value Based Care model, Motiva Health partners directly with employers to provide onsite access to MSK specialists. Our hands-on, conservative approach provides employees with the most effective care possible, decreasing healthcare spend and lost hours from work.

Combining on-site physician accessibility, convenient mobile scheduling, personalized rehabilitation tracking, and next generation 3D patient education - our experience is centered around the patient and designed exclusively for the employer.
