Figure 3 below illustrates the cost and the unique Human Capital Risk Index® (HUI) score for the musculoskeletal cohort as compared to the non-musculoskeletal cohort for large employers in the HCMS Research Reference Database (RRDb). In all four risk groups (50%, 30%, 15%, 5%), the musculoskeletal cohort has a significantly higher HUI score. The difference is most predominant in the 5% and 15% groups. As previously stated, much of this cost and risk is associated with the co-morbidities in the musucoskeletal cohort.

These findings enforce the need for a person-centric holistic primary, and preventive, health care intervention that identifies and engages the high-risk individuals.
