Description

Telehealth for rehabilitation is the way therapy is moving, especially for patients who are in rural settings and out of coverage for home health agencies. But many therapists find telehealth to be too challenging, wondering how to examine the patient correctly, provide manual therapy or basic treatment, how to get reimbursed, and build trust with patients. Some see it as a threat to their job security, thinking they’ll soon be replaced.

Instead of seeing tele-rehabilitation as a threat to your job security or as a delivery service with too many challenges, make it an opportunity to gain access to more patients and increase demand for your therapy, all while continuing to provide quality care wherever you and your patients are. Be ahead of the curve before it becomes even more widely used!

Learn all the ins and outs from the course presenter, who has been at the forefront of the cutting edge of telehealth for several years. You’ll learn how to increase your care with patients from afar by incorporating motivational interviewing techniques to better assess the problem and to build trust; teach self-mobilization techniques to your patients; provide exciting treatments to address musculoskeletal, neurological, cardiopulmonary, and various other conditions while enhancing the patient’s participation in therapy.

Learn how to bill and what software is available to increase accessibility. Your presenter will walk you through some real-life case examples so you can see how it works, from start to finish.

Be ahead of the telehealth curve. Gain confidence in using this delivery system in the most effective way so you can expand your practice now and still provide the best quality of care.
