mHealthIntelligence: 'Long-Awaited' Results from VERITAS Study 'Affirms Cost Savings' Offered by VERA

Covering the recent, “long-awaited” announcement that the VERITAS study of our Virtual Exercise Rehabilitation (VERA™) has yielded positive results, mHealthIntelligence’s Erik Wicklund writes that these outcomes “are of interest to providers who want to improve post-discharge patient outcomes and reduce rehospitalizations.”

The study, conducted by the Duke University School of Medicine’s Duke Clinical Research Institute (DCRI), is meaningful to “physical therapists who see telemedicine as a means of expanding their business and boosting patient engagement," Wicklund adds.

"Healthcare providers saved almost $2,750 per patient by using telehealth instead of in-person treatment for post-discharge physical therapy after knee replacement surgery,” he writes. “The long-awaited study … makes the case for a remote patient monitoring platform that enables providers to coordinate care at the patient’s home rather than the doctor’s office or clinic.”
