DMOS Orthopaedic Centers to launch Virtual DMOS
WEST DES MOINES, IOWA, October 27th, 2023 — Monday, October 30, 2023 will mark the “Go Live” date for Virtual DMOS. Virtual DMOS powered by Hatch will allow patients to interact virtually with a provider from wherever they are. Patients will link through their mobile device or computer through www.dmos.com where they will complete a brief questionnaire about what they are calling about as well as upload photos of their injury, if they choose. The patient will then be connected to an available provider who will walk them through a digital front door to begin their care journey with a live video call. The Virtual DMOS service is available at no cost to the patient.
“We’re proud to remove a basic barrier to care for patients in Central Iowa – the simple act of finding it,” said Dr. Nick Honkamp, Board President of DMOS. “Now, with the Hatch partnership and connections to employers, patients will be better able to identify the right provider who will deliver the optimal clinical outcomes they deserve. After serving our communities for six decades, we’re proud to introduce this innovative, new model.”

Hatch enables independent orthopedic providers to establish direct relationships with local consumers and employers. The platform is tailor-made for engaging patients earlier in their care journey through real-time triage, virtual consults, and integrated online scheduling. Coupled with DMOS’ expansive provider network and leading treatment recommendations, patients gain access to timely, convenient, and specialized care.
Through the partnership, DMOS will unlock new employer opportunities in Iowa. As a result, employees can access DMOS’s orthopedic urgent injury clinics and avoid unnecessary emergency room visits, thereby reducing costs and improving care. With these employer relationships, DMOS has the potential to gain market share while ensuring that patients receive proper care.
