Ways that Physical Therapists benefit by Telemedicine:
+ Compensation gets a boost - Charging a convenience charge for the televisit is acceptable to most patients for eliminating the problems associated with an office visit (travel, waiting, taking time off work, etc.). Plus, they are more likely to contact you than go to the ER with non-life threatening problems if they have the ability to have a televisit. So you get the visit fee.
+ Much more convenient and better care for patients - 64% of patients expressed interest in telemedicine and 70% said they would prefer receiving a prescription via video visit vs an in-person visit. Bottom line, patients benefit and your practice does too.
+ Convenient for Physical Therapists- Replacing follow-up visits (normally 10-15 minutes on average) with a televisit (normally 3-5 minutes), saves you and your patients time.
Quote from the American Physical Therapy Association: "In physical therapy, our patients/clients are asking for more time-efficient and less costly care models. Their busy lifestyles also can make it difficult for them to attend traditional appointments.
Applications of telehealth in physical therapy already have roots that expand throughout patient/client care and consultation, as it allows PTs to better communicate with patients/clients and provide more flexible care. Telehealth will not replace traditional clinical care. However, it will give PTs and PTAs the flexibility to provide services in a greater capacity. Examples:
- Patients typically in clinical or hospital settings could be managed from their homes
- Quicker screening, assessment, and referrals can improve care coordination within collaborative delivery models such as accountable care organizations or patient-centered medical homes
- Telehealth can facilitate consultation between providers or in clinical education"
