MedRisk Introduces TeleRehab to Onsite Physical Therapy Program
Onsite physical therapy programs reduce time away from work, eliminate travel time and expense, and increase patient compliance, which can keep musculoskeletal issues from evolving into complex and costly claims.
However, it may not be feasible for all locations or for employees who work remotely, so MedRisk has added a telerehabilitation component to ensure consistent care for all of an employer’s injured workers.
MedRisk places a full-time, onsite physical therapist with expertise in treating work-related injuries in key locations to provide care to patients at their workplaces. The onsite physical therapist, who has also received specialized training on the delivery of physical rehabilitation via video conference, delivers physical rehabilitation to employees at satellite locations via telerehab. All the patient requires is the use of an Apple or Android mobile device, the MedRisk app or a computer with an audio-enabled webcam.
“The onsite-telerehab model guarantees consistent treatment strategies and philosophy of care for all employees regardless of their geographic locations,” said MedRisk’s Chief Clinical & Product Officer Mary O’Donoghue.
In addition to treating patients, MedRisk’s onsite physical therapist provides initial evaluations and injury triage, functional capacity evaluations, post-offer employment testing, re-injury prevention training, ergonomic assessments, workstation analysis and work readiness testing.
