Partnership Recognizes OrthoIndy Hospital as New Center of Excellence for Orthopedic Care in Midwest to Deliver High-Quality, Affordable Care

Carrum Health, the first digital health company connecting employers and employees with Centers of Excellence (COEs) for better, more cost-effective healthcare, today announced that it’s launching in Indiana through a partnership with OrthoIndy Hospital. Working with OrthoIndy Hospital, Carrum Health will provide Indiana employers, employees and their dependents access to high-quality orthopedic services at predictable costs.  

“OrthoIndy Hospital has a stellar reputation for its orthopedic services,” said Christoph Dankert, VP of Product at Carrum Health. “OrthoIndy Hospital’s focus on delivering high-quality, affordable care makes them an ideal partner as we launch in the state to meet the needs of employer COE programs, and help drive down the cost of common procedures.”

A RAND Corporation study found that prices paid to hospitals across the U.S. for privately insured patients averaged about 241% of what Medicare would have paid. The costs are even higher in Indiana, which was 311% of Medicare, according to the report, “Prices Paid to Hospitals by Private Health Plans Are High Relative to Medicare and Vary Widely: Findings from an Employer-Led Transparency Initiative.”

Through Carrum Health’s technology-powered platform, employees and their dependents will have access to joint replacement and spinal procedures at OrthoIndy Hospital at a fixed, bundled price. Carrum Health helps employers save up to 50% on surgery costs, while ensuring that patients receive best-in-class care and support throughout their healthcare journey. Ultimately, Carrum Health plans to offer a full range of orthopedic care through its platform in conjunction with OrthoIndy Hospital.
