NASHVILLE, Tenn. Hatch, a leader in healthcare technology focused on direct care, is proud to announce its partnership with Orlando Orthopaedic Center, the premier provider of orthopaedic services in  Central Florida. This collaboration is set to improve the accessibility of quality orthopaedic care for local employers, delivering comprehensive solutions that effectively manage both the quality of care and associated costs.

Orlando Orthopaedic Center has established itself as a key player in orthopaedic healthcare, making it the perfect partner for Hatch to offer personalized and efficient orthopaedic services to the Orlando market. Through this partnership, Hatch and Orlando Orthopaedic Center are committed to simplifying the process for employees to access the orthopaedic care they need, when they need it.

Gerry Andrady, CEO of Hatch, commented on the partnership, saying, "This collaboration is centered around providing direct and efficient care pathways for employers and their employees. Our platform and services are tailored to facilitate these connections, ensuring accessible and appropriate orthopaedic care."

This initiative aims to lower musculoskeletal (MSK) healthcare expenses by guiding employees through the most effective care pathways, from preventive measures to advanced treatments.

Kevin Joyce, CEO of Orlando Orthopaedic Center, shared his enthusiasm for the partnership, noting, "We’re in a unique position to positively impact employer-sponsored MSK care in our local market. Hatch is helping us establish direct employer relationships and enabling our ability to connect patients with the right provider, at the right time and place, at the right price. It’s a win-win that cuts out the middleman of traditional, complex, and costly MSK care."

In addition to direct-to-employer efforts, Orlando Orthopaedic Center will introduce a Hatch-powered virtual triage service. This service allows residents in the Orlando area to easily consult with clinicians from Orlando Orthopaedic Center about their orthopaedic concerns from the comfort of their homes. 

"Adding virtual triage and care navigation through Hatch's platform ensures broader access to our clinicians, allowing individuals to receive timely and convenient orthopaedic care and a full continuity of musculoskeletal care," said Dylan Ferson, Director of Business Development & Ancillary Services at Orlando Orthopaedic Center.

With this strategic partnership, Hatch and Orlando Orthopaedic Center are set to transform orthopaedic care delivery in Central Florida, focusing on improving healthcare outcomes and making high-quality care more affordable and accessible to employers and the wider community.
