New PT solution may help injury prevention, injury recovery, and telehealth for health plans and self-insured employers.
November 5, 2019 – San Diego, Calif. – Reflexion Health today launches HelloPT™, a digital physical therapy platform that combines tailored injury prevention with telehealth access to licensed physical therapists. As a general wellness product, HelloPT may give employers and payors the ability to manage their population’s physical therapy needs through an evidence-based platform.
Available on any device, users simply answer a short assessment and then receive a self-paced, exercise plan from HelloPT. Recommendations are based on the Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPG) of the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy (AOPT). Users who want further customization can escalate their care to telehealth visits with licensed physical therapists.
According to the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, around half of all Americans suffer from physical therapy needs, which can prevent them from living happy, healthy lives. Many of these issues start with something minor, but often become chronic pain issues that can linger for years and carry a massive price tag for patients if they escalate into conditions that require surgery.
Dr. Joe Smith, CEO of Reflexion Health, shares, “HelloPT is designed to empower people to improve their health. Physical therapy is often thought of as a tool for recovery, but PT can be incredibly beneficial to prevent injuries and keep physical therapy needs from getting to the point where surgery or pain medication becomes necessary.”
The new product line is in keeping with Reflexion Health’s role as a digital healthcare pioneer dedicated to bringing PT home. Leveraging innovations in technology and clinical delivery to offer a patient-centered, data-driven and value-based solution for home-based physical recovery, the company also offers VERA®, an FDA-cleared Virtual Exercise Rehabilitation Assistant that combines avatar coaching, 3D motion-capture technology, remote clinical oversight, and telehealth visits with a licensed therapist.
