Orthopedics This Week has published an article exploring a study that found that our Virtual Exercise Rehabilitation Assistant (VERA™) telerehab platform can boost patient satisfaction with post-TKA and THA surgery rehabilitation while also offering significant cost savings to payors and providers.
Consulted on the topic of technological adoption within the healthcare industry, Reflexion Health President and CEO and Forbes Technology Council member Dr. Joe Smith writes that the challenge “isn’t innovation or execution, it’s adoption. Getting providers and payers to change — it’s the biggest challenge healthcare innovators face.”
“One of the strengths of this system is that you actually know if the patient is doing therapy. It is another opportunity to have a higher-quality touchpoint with the patient without the patient having to come into the office. It doesn't eliminate the need for skilled physical therapist, but it is an extender of physical therapy.”
“We’ve got to focus on using appropriate technology, for which we should be grateful — there's a lot available — to lower the overall cost of healthcare delivery. Otherwise, I think we have too much of an opportunity cost in this country, where we could use that money to do other things to help us be better.”
