WebMD Health Services Partners with Fern Health

Sep 14, 2022

News provided by Share this article Workforce well-being program offers coaching and guidance for chronic pain management PORTLAND, Ore., Sept. 14, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- As more than one in five Americans struggle with chronic pain, WebMD Health Services  today announced a new partnership with Fern Health , a leading digital platform giving employees and health plan members the guidance and tools they need to address the underlying causes of persistent pain. The new offering, available through WebMD ONE , features programs for chronic pain conditions such as musculoskeletal pain, migraines, and fibromyalgia. The Fern Health program, developed in partnership with leading pain physicians from Massachusetts General Hospital, supports participants in identifying how pain impacts their life and helps them set goals related to exercise therapy, emotional health, movement, sleep, and nutrition. Uniquely combined with WebMD Health Services certified pain coaches, individuals are supported through a self-paced digital journey via mobile and web browser-enabled applications, chats and telephone check-ins. Chronic pain is the leading cause of disability in the U.S. and impacts mental health and overall quality of life for more than 50 million Americans. The economic impact is estimated at more than $500 billion annually, more than any other chronic health condition. "Millions of people live with chronic pain, and most do not have access to true multidisciplinary pain management," said Bruce Foyt, WebMD Health Services Vice President, Partnerships. "With Fern Health, we can offer employers and health plans evidence-based programs to fill this enormous gap, while helping to reduce the social and economic impact of chronic pain both in and out of the workplace."

Our clinically validated, holistic pain programs deliver meaningful and life-enhancing results for chronic pain sufferers," said Brad Lawson, Chief Executive Officer at Fern Health. "Partnering with WebMD Health Services gives us an opportunity to extend the work we do -- offering employers and health plans the opportunity to help their employees and plan members live better, more functioning lives, while potentially reducing health costs.
