Crossover Health and Matrix Announce Joint Primary Care and Occupational Health Offering for Employers

Crossover Health and Matrix Clinical Solutions Announce Joint Primary Care and Occupational Health Offering for Employers

SAN CLEMENTE, CA and SCOTTSDALE, AZ, January 20, 2022 — Crossover Health, a leader in delivering value-based hybrid care, and Matrix Clinical Solutions, a Matrix Medical Network ® company and provider of workers compensation health services, announced today at the 2022 Onsite Employee Health Clinics Summit in Scottsdale, Arizona, that they will offer a joint primary care and occupational health solution. The new-to-market offering will combine Crossover’s Primary Health care model, inclusive of primary care, physical medicine, mental health, coaching and care navigation, with Matrix’s custom workplace health solutions, such as onsite occupational health, workplace certification and vaccine deployment and testing, providing employers with a comprehensive health, safety and well-being strategy.

Employer investment in both primary care and occupational health is growing exponentially, in large part because of the evolving workplace health and safety considerations of the pandemic-era. According to a study conducted by Mercer and the National Association of Worksite Health Centers, employers are embracing more expansive health services. Similarly, employers are making major investments in the Occupational Health & Workplace Safety Services industry, contributing to an estimated market size of $7.1b by 2022.

“The pandemic has emphasized an existing demand for employer-sponsored healthcare solutions, as well as workplace health and safety measures, with many employers seeking something more comprehensive and long-term than current offerings,” explained Stephen Ezeji-Okoye, MD Chief Medical Officer,  Crossover Health. “Collaborating with Matrix will enable Crossover to offer to employers a broader range of services, streamlining the care experience and delivering meaningful results.”

Matrix Chief Medical Officer and Group President, Daniel Castillo, M.D., M.B.A., added, “We look forward to working alongside Crossover starting with our existing episodic health solutions and exploring the potential to build out comprehensive and convenient solutions for employers who are taking workplace health and safety to the next level. Our combined national footprint coupled with our commitment to improving clinical outcomes and lowering the total cost of care will enable us to create a new standard for workplace health through this joint offering.”

Crossover and Matrix each operate in all 50 states, and combined have approximately 250 physical locations and nearly 6,000 health care providers and staff. The companies share a dedication to the role of foundational primary care and preventative health, and have deep roots in employer-sponsored healthcare. The collaborative solutions are anticipated to be offered later this year.
