July 8, 2015 The Colorado Health Foundation announced investment in Telespine as part of a mission-focused partnership to support Telespine’s effort in providing an affordable healthcare solution to heal low back pain. Telespine’s mission is in line with the Colorado Health Foundation by providing a solution that increases access to quality health care and encourages healthy lifestyle choices. The $250,000 program-related investment in Telespine is part of the Foundation’s Private Sector Initiatives program, which seeks to increase the opportunities to improve the health of Coloradans.
“Telespine can provide access to cost-effective, convenient healthcare treatment for lower back pain to individuals who do not have access to care due to no or limited insurance benefits or cannot afford traditional care in an office-based healthcare setting,” said Jesse Wolff, Director of Private Sector Initiatives for the Foundation. “The Telespine program will help further the Foundation’s goal of increased patient engagement by combining a telehealth delivery method with personalized exercise and education tutorials, online video consults and coach-to-patient messaging, as well as individualized patient reminders and notifications.”
Mark Barnes, CEO of Telespine noted, “We are very excited to have the support of the Colorado Health Foundation, and are confident that our partnership will help drive access to innovative digital health solutions for all Coloradans suffering from lower back pain.”
