NASHVILLE, Tenn. – Hatch, a leading digital healthcare technology company, today announced a partnership with OrthoLoneStar, the largest independent orthopedic practice in Texas and the fourth largest in the country. Through this partnership, Hatch will help increase local consumers’ access to orthopedic care and ensure patients are connected to the right orthopedic provider—utilizing clinical acuity, patient preferences, and real-time availability metrics.
“This partnership is a meaningful milestone in our commitment to expand our offerings, meet patients’ evolving needs, and provide employers across Texas with direct access to high-quality, value-based musculoskeletal care.”
With a national presence, Hatch’s white-labeled platform aims to engage patients earlier in their care journey by utilizing digital tools such as digital triaging, telehealth, asynchronous texting, and online scheduling. By connecting patients with OrthoLoneStar’s leading orthopedic specialists they can receive immediate support and treatment recommendations from the comfort of their own home. In addition to increasing referrals and consumer capture, Hatch enables employer partnerships with the goal of improving employees’ experience and reducing employers’ healthcare costs.
“We’re thrilled to partner with OrthoLoneStar, a company that shares our vision for making access to the best possible care easier,” said Gerry Andrady, CEO of Hatch. “With a user friendly platform, OrthoLoneStar will be able to leverage digital tools and technology to enhance their care offering and continue to expand their footprint in Texas. We’re excited to work alongside a team of award-winning physicians at the forefront of orthopedic care.”
As Texas employers fight rising healthcare costs, this partnership will arm employees with immediate digital access to local orthopedic specialists, mitigating unnecessary emergency room or urgent care visits and, when appropriate, connect them with OrthoLoneStar’s high-quality in-person providers. OrthoLoneStar has more than 165 physicians, nearly 1,200 employees, and 46 locations.
“With a mission of providing the highest quality orthopedic care at the best value across Texas, we see great opportunity in embracing a digital platform while staying true to our local roots,” said Anthony Brooks, COO of OrthoLoneStar. “This partnership is a meaningful milestone in our commitment to expand our offerings, meet patients’ evolving needs, and provide employers across Texas with direct access to high-quality, value-based musculoskeletal care.”
