WHY THE NEED FOR A SPINE ASSESSMENT PROGRAM?
To address a critical delay in access to multidisciplinary assessment and management of patients with spinal diseases and injuries. Caleo Health has instituted a document review and assessment process to internally triage referrals.
Deliver personalized medicine for those living with spinal disorders.
The assessment process is designed to provide: single-site management of your condition(s), coordinate investigations and optimize care processes. We offer a continuum of care where patients are referred to the most appropriate healthcare provider for management and treatment.
