In the current system, patients are prescribed PT exercises to help them recover from an injury or surgery. The patient will visit a physical therapist a few times and be expected to continue their exercises on their own at home. Problems may not be detected for several weeks when – and if – a patient returns for a follow up appointment. Patients and their doctors often deal with the frustration of a slower recovery due to the PT not being done properly.
PT Genie provides patients with the personal direction they need to perform the movements accurately, along with a direct connection to their healthcare providers to monitor their condition – every day.
PT Genie not only helps patients recover faster, it helps physical therapists survive in a rapidly changing healthcare environment. By using PT Genie, healthcare providers have a telehealth mechanism to stay in touch with patients at home, along with a way to measure – and prove – the success rate of their patient outcomes. This is increasingly important as insurance companies demand providers move toward value-based healthcare models of efficiency.
