Home exercise programs improve patient outcomes. Now that reimbursement is shifting toward rewarding results and the COVID-19 pandemic is changing the way we do physical therapy, transition to software is a wise decision. Cloud-based software and home exercise apps can fit any budget, including free, pay-per-month, and purchase. If you are looking for home exercise software for your patients, here are a few to get you started.
The Impact of COVID-19
Although physical therapists and physical therapy assistants managed increased workloads of complex patients on the front line of the COVID-19 pandemic, this is not the norm. Physical therapy clinics that remained open during the early weeks of the pandemic saw fewer consumers walking through the door. Physician referrals declined, as did direct access visits. Care hours were cut short and employment suffered. Before the pandemic, telehealth was an exception to the rule in physical therapy. Now, virtual is playing a significant role in physical therapy practice.
