Palladian’s proprietary online approval process and evidence-based clinical guidelines determine an appropriate course of conservative (non-invasive) care, for the rehabilitation of musculoskeletal conditions and the management of spinally-related pain.
About Palladian Health
Palladian Health was founded in Western New York almost twenty years ago as a chiropractic network and care management organization, working with major payers in the Northeastern U.S. to improve patient outcomes while reducing unnecessary medical expense.
Its range of service offerings evolved over the years to include Coordinated Spine Care in 2008, a proprietary process which improves the assessment and management of musculoskeletal pain from spinal disorders and promotes evidence-based decision making throughout the care cycle.
In 2015, Summer Street Capital became the control owner of Palladian, putting a new leadership team into place. Palladian is now a leading NCQA-certified, URAC accredited musculoskeletal care management company focused on care management in orthopedics, physical therapy, chiropractic and related spine pain services partnering with payers across the United States.
Today, Palladian’s broadened targeted customer base includes health insurers, TPAs, ACOs and large self‐funded groups focusing on the biomechanics, structure and function of the spine, its effects on the musculoskeletal system and synchronicity of these systems as they relate to the preservation and restoration of health.
The company’s expanded offerings now include a multitude of strategic options and delivery systems proven to improve clinical outcomes and patient satisfaction, including the ability to seamlessly integrate its value-based care management algorithms within a payer’s existing utilization management infrastructure.
Palladian’s care guidelines and proprietary algorithms -- developed and continuously updated by a distinguished panel of nationally renowned medical experts from a wide range of specialties -- are utilized to deliver high quality and effective results which maximize patient outcomes and eliminate unnecessary procedures and costs from the system.
We provide the best access for clinically excellent and affordable musculoskeletal health. We are dedicated to improving the coordination of patient care, enhancing the clinical effectiveness and efficiency of caregivers and, ultimately, improving the quality of people's lives.
Musculoskeletal ServicesAs a managed care company, Palladian Health provides services to determine medical necessity, using a utilization management model or a clinical decision support model, to manage musculoskeletal conditions and spine-related pain.

These guidelines have been established by the Palladian Health Clinical Policy Advisory Board, comprised of renowned medical professionals from across the United States.
Palladian’s evidence-based guidelines serve as the basis for making determinations on the appropriateness of intermediate diagnostic procedures including diagnostic imaging, advanced spinal imaging (CT and MRI), as well as electro-diagnostic procedures.
