What if you could predict surgery before it's needed?

The only end-to-end solution that can avoid unnecessary surgeries and related costs.

  1. Predict candidates for surgery


    Identify members 10x–40x more likely to have surgery.

  2. Engage with at-risk members you've identified


    Engage members up to 8 months in advance of surgery.

  3. Provide physical therapy instead of surgery


    Treat members with Sword's Digital Physical Therapy.

We use machine learning to find at-risk members and save you millions

Time is the key element to being able to impact a course of care for a member. Predict has been built to spot at-risk members before they become surgical candidates and provide them with better, more effective care.

Current solutions that use risk models do not result in decreased costs because they lack integration, innovation, advanced engagement and personalized treatment solutions.
