Dr. Joe Smith Discusses Results & Milestones of VERITAS Study with Orthopedics This Week

Reflexion Health President and CEO Dr. Joseph “Joe” Smith recently walked Orthopedics This Week through the results and milestones of the VERITAS clinical trial — the soon-to-be published study showing that our VERA virtual PT platform is as safe and effective as traditional therapy for TKR patients, while offering the power to sharply reduce post-acute costs, to boot.

“The first development milestone was proof of concept — proving that all patients could use it (usability) and that the feedback to each patient about their exercises was appropriate,” Dr. Smith told OTW.

“The second milestone was that use of VERA improved compliance/adherence while delighting patients,” he continued. “The final milestones (as proven in the VERITAS trial) were that overall outcomes were at least as good as standard of care while the costs to everyone were much lower.”

“For busy clinicians, VERA provides unprecedented and efficient visibility into the patient's post-operative recovery while greatly diminishing the overall cost of post-surgical rehabilitation,” he added. “For patients, VERA provides convenience, dramatically enhanced compliance, the comfort of an on-demand, at-home solution, and cost-savings from avoided travel and co-pays—and they love it!”
