BRENTWOOD, Tenn, June 20, 2019 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- IMAC Holdings, Inc. (IMAC) (“IMAC” or the “Company”), a provider of Innovative Medical Advancements and Care, specializing in regenerative and rehabilitation orthopedic treatments without the use of surgery or opioids, announces participation in the Validation Institute’s 2019 Health Care Benefits Summit held yesterday at the FedEx Institute of Technology in Memphis. Matthew Wallis, cofounder and chief operating officer, presented the value proposition IMAC Regeneration Centers offers to self-funded companies and other payers, given the Company’s advanced approach to treating musculoskeletal conditions.

During the employer panel, one Fortune 500 company’s benefit manager discussed the importance of innovative benefit alternatives to determine the best offerings for their 42,000 plan members. A keynote presenter representing another Fortune 500 company, centered his message on the importance of building systems that automatically move healthcare consumers to safe and conservative treatments.
RD Whitney, C.E.O. of Validation Institute, was pleased with the event and grateful for the contribution of so many leaders and innovators in the industry. "It's great to bring employers and innovative solutions like IMAC together locally in a wonderful city like Memphis, as we all work toward improving quality outcomes and cost of healthcare."
