If you are a healthcare professional or centre, you must have observed a large number of patients opting more for telehealth rather than visiting hospitals in-person! 

If you are an entrepreneur, you must have already decided to seize the newly developed virtual physiotherapy opportunity! 

But if you’re struggling to navigate telehealth technology complexities, this blog is a great help.  

What is virtual physiotherapy or telehealth physical therapy?

 

Virtual physiotherapy or telehealth physical therapy is nothing but the remote delivery of physiotherapy services using telecommunication technologies such as voice calls and even video calls. 

To provide virtual physiotherapy service, a physiotherapist and patient both need to have a few important telehealth resources such as an uninterrupted internet connection, telehealth tool, app or software, and mobile or computer devices such as a tablet, smartphone, computer or laptop.  

Who can provide online physiotherapy services and how? 

  • Physiotherapy Clinics: 

Physiotherapy clinics can provide online physiotherapy services to enhance patient delight, attract new patients, and reduce staff burden. 

To provide telehealth physical therapy, you have two options. 

Option 1: Develop your own virtual physiotherapy app or tool. 

Option 2: Deploy a publicly available virtual physiotherapy app or tool. 

  • Individual Physiotherapists

Individual physiotherapists can provide online physiotherapy services to offer rapid & remote service and treat more patients in a given time. 

To provide telehealth physical therapy, you have two options. 

Option 1: Develop your own virtual physiotherapy app or tool and use it in your clinic as well as make it publicly available to make money out of it. 

Option 2: Deploy a publicly available virtual physiotherapy app or tool 

  • Entrepreneurs 

Entrepreneurs can provide online physiotherapy services to make money! 

To provide telehealth physical therapy, you have one option.

Option 1: Develop a virtual physiotherapy app, make it available publicly for both patients and physiotherapists and take your commission out of a patient visit with a physiotherapist.  

Why should you provide online physiotherapy services or virtual physiotherapy in Canada?

There are mainly two reasons and both of these reasons are significant ones! 

Reason 1: Market Demand 

Due to COVID-19, people have changed their ways to get healthcare services. This requires healthcare providers to change the healthcare delivery model. 

People are now avoiding hospital or healthcare centre visits because of the COVID-19 fear.  They are finding virtual visits with doctors more convenient, safe, reliable and affordable. 

To address this newly developed patient behaviour, you need to put a legacy healthcare delivery model to end and adopt a trending healthcare delivery model – telehealth! 

Reason 2: Operational and Financial Benefits 

Having a telehealth tool with uninterrupted internet access and proper telehealth hardware devices make you derive many operational and financial benefits. 

Operational benefits include high productivity, reduced paperwork, rapid care, remote care, desired patient outcomes, automated tasks, fewer errors, and personalized care. 

Financial benefits include less resource utilization, personalized offers, and extensive reach.
