Top 4 Benefits of Telehealth in PT

The prevalence of tech and touchscreens in our everyday life means that telehealth has reached potential that was unheard-of even 10 years ago. If you haven’t incorporated virtual care delivery, here are four reasons why you should consider it:

 

1.)    Improved patient outcomes

 

Telehealth allows you to interact with your patients in between visits, which leads to higher patient engagement. Those periodic check-ins are often all that are needed to ensure they stay compliant with their program. Plus, many telehealth programs include pre-recorded videos that walk patients through certain exercises and stretches, so they can make sure they’re doing things right.

 

2.)    Expand your clientele base

 

Those who are homebound or in underserved areas can find it difficult to make it to in-person physical therapy sessions on a regular basis. Telehealth could end those barriers for them, allowing you to expand into a client base that previously would have been unavailable.

 

3.)    CMS increases its availability

 

Great strides have been made recently in terms of Medicare reimbursements for telehealth. Its recently unveiled Rural Health Strategy and earlier Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement (CJR) model both open the door for more telehealth coverage.

 

 

4.)    Low cost of entry

 

Many times, implementing a new form of technology into your practice is associated with a high cost of entry. But, you don’t have to break the bank to introduce telehealth to your clinic. Tech companies such as BlueJay Mobile Health have comprehensive plans already in place. Best of all, since they are one of our vendors, you can get their services at a reduced price!
