New partnership allows for continuity of high-quality care delivered remotely to patients in a rapidly shifting healthcare environment.
Seattle, WA—Alliance Physical Therapy Partners has partnered with MedBridge to provide effective care and patient support via telehealth during the COVID-19 crisis and beyond. MedBridge is an industry-leading online education and patient engagement solution that enables healthcare organizations to improve outcomes and optimize care delivery. Alliance PTP is committed to providing compassionate, results-centered physical therapy throughout its network of clinics across the US.
To continue providing superior service while accommodating social distancing protocols, Alliance PTP has launched remote therapy for patients through MedBridge’s Telehealth Virtual Visits solution.
“We’re focused on delivering high-quality care in a safe environment while engaging patients with the level of care that meets their needs. MedBridge’s Telehealth can help keep our patients on track with their care plans even when they’re not able to visit us in person. We’re able to stay better connected to our patients through virtual visits,” said Richard Leaver, MBA, PT and Chief Operating Officer of Alliance PTP.
MedBridge’s Telehealth solution allows Alliance PTP to offer a patient experience that closely mirrors an in-person session. Clinicians can remotely care for patients in real time, providing a HIPAA-compliant method for continuing treatment plans during the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Virtual sessions are integrated into the platform in a way that supports normal clinician workflow, making remote care simple and intuitive for both clinicians and patients.
With Telehealth Virtual Visits, Alliance PTP can foster rapport, engagement, and education by building, sharing, and discussing targeted home exercises with their patients during each virtual visit.
“The COVID-19 crisis has presented a unique challenge for clinicians to provide the level of care our patients need. Our clinicians appreciate being able to provide their care for patients. And with MedBridge Telehealth, they’ll be able to stay connected to patients outside of office visits, even after the pandemic subsides,” said Leaver of Alliance PTP.
Telehealth Virtual Visits is part of MedBridge’s Digital Patient Engagement Suite, which includes Home Exercise Programs, Patient Education, and a Program Adherence Tracker, along with in-app messaging and satisfaction monitoring with the MedBridge GO Patient App. The virtual patient care solution, paired with MedBridge’s remote training, infection prevention, and crisis management education, offers healthcare organizations a complete solution to address and solve current challenges.
“With the evolving healthcare environment as providers look beyond COVID-19, challenges exist in balancing in-person sessions with virtual visits in maintaining continuity of care. MedBridge is here to help our partners stay prepared during every stage of the market’s cautious return to business with innovative solutions for remote care and education,” said Justin Kowalchuk, CEO and Founder of MedBridge.
