Physical Therapy Pal (PT PAL), the first clinical HIPAA-compliant mobile application used between physical therapists and patients, will present the PT PAL Web portal and app at the American Telemedicine Association Telemedicine Venture Summit, Monday, May 19, 2014, Baltimore, Maryland, during the Innovations Spotlight educational program. PT PAL is redefining the way PT professionals, payers and other industry stakeholders document patient compliance and adherence to at-home treatment protocols, while improving patient engagement and driving down costs for the entire healthcare system.
“PT PAL is like having a physical therapist in your pocket, reminding patients to perform their PT-prescribed exercises and offering constant guidance on correct form and repetition,” says Naveen Khan, founder and CEO, PT PAL. “The results are enhanced recovery and speedier return-to-work or active lifestyles.”
PT PAL creates the first-of-its kind communication loop of information for physical therapists, clinics and hospitals, providing documented evidence about patient adherence to PT-prescribed treatment in the home. As a result, payers and other stakeholders now have access to individual progress and patient population management. By documenting the patient care experience, PT PAL data can be used for research, statistics and reimbursement -- taking physical therapy communication to new levels of evidence-based medicine.
“Healthcare happens every day outside of the clinic,” Khan adds. “PT PAL offers unparalleled assistance to patients, who only spend a small portion of their time with their physical therapist. This new tool is sure to be a game-changer for PT patients everywhere.”
