Managing Escalating Workers’ Compensation Surgical Implant Costs

Workers' compensation leader ForeSIGHT Medical releases new reporting and analytics tool that
helps identify and control escalating costs in surgical procedures involving implants.

Tampa, FL, November 21, 2013 --(PR.com)-- ForeSIGHT Medical, the nation's fastest growing and most
experienced company focused solely on surgical implant cost containment in workers' compensation,
today announced the launch of InSIGHT™, the industry's first business and data intelligence reporting
suite dedicated to surgical implant cost and utilization analysis. InSIGHT combines geo-specific true cost
data, physician and manufacturer utilization trends, site of care variation benchmarks, and
fraud-waste-and-abuse triggers in a comprehensive report that enables clients to make informed decisions
regarding surgical procedures involving implants.

“The complex surgical implant supply chain, combined with the variable markup and billing practices of
providers, has created a difficult environment for payers to control this escalating cost driver,” said Brian
Bell, President of ForeSIGHT Medical. “Research by the California Workers' Compensation Institute
shows that California hospitals were being overpaid for spinal hardware by as much as $67.5 million in
2010 alone, and it's not just a problem in California. ForeSIGHT specializes in containing costs of
surgical implant hardware across all sites of care, delivering an average savings of 61% to payers across
the nation.”

ForeSIGHT's proprietary implant management platform, Fusion™, analyzes and delivers savings across
every implant-related cost category, including orthopedics, spine, and pain management. From the
seemingly inexpensive hernia mesh, to the highly variable and extremely costly spinal fusion, InSIGHT is
powered by an ever-increasing universe of audit and reduction metrics throughout all sites of care. The
result is a comprehensive program that delivers maximum savings across 100% of the category spend for
surgical implants, delivering a predictable cost structure and actionable reporting.

In the case of a major payer with a 24% year-over-year increase in claims requiring surgical intervention,
ForeSIGHT was able to identify an incremental savings opportunity of greater than 54% off allowed/paid
amounts. A comprehensive review of the client's payment and utilization data was performed after a
thorough application of multiple PPO reductions, Usual and Customary database benchmarks, and
professional peer/clinical review. The value of ForeSIGHT's modular based reduction methodology was
demonstrated through proprietary triggering mechanisms for fraud-waste-and-abuse, oversight and
scrutiny from ForeSIGHT's panel of practicing surgeons, surgical technicians, and rigorous interpretation
and application of state and local regulations. The bottom line was additional cost savings of over $1.8
million dollars for this payer.

“ForeSIGHT is recognized for our deep experience and industry-leading approach to fair, objective, and
repeatable reduction methodologies for surgical implants,” said Bell. “Data and analytics are at the
foundation of everything we do, and InSIGHT packages this data into clear action items for payers.”
