MobiHealthNews, a leading online publication covering the digital health news, recently published an article exploring the launch of our HelloPT digital physical therapy platform. Included in the coverage was a rundown of “why it matters,” discussing the aims and potential impact of the groundbreaking telehealth technology.
“It’s no secret that US is facing a shortage of healthcare practitioners across various specialties,” writes Laura Lovett in the article, which comes on the heels of similar HelloPT coverage in Becker’s ASC Review and Orthopedics This Week. “The physical therapy field is among those most impacted.”
Going on to explain the need for an additional 27,000 PTs by the year 2025 (based on an estimate from the Alliance for Physical Therapy Quality and Innovation), Lovett notes that, as a digital health startup, Reflexion Health is making use of virtual technology “to help fill this gap.”
Offering a step-by-step rundown of how HelloPT works, from “choosing what body parts are injured”to filling out a short survey that gives “patients a self-paced exercise plan based on the assessment,” Lovett notes that the platform is geared towards “health plans and self-insured employers.”
