Tired of hearing bad news? We are too. Even though this year has brought about challenges none of us could have prepared for, there have also been exciting new developments in physical therapy.
It may have felt like the world has been on pause but innovation waits for no one. Check out some of our favorite exciting new innovations in physical therapy happening in 2020
Robots are helping to revolutionize how we care for patients in physical therapy. In the past, physical therapists would have to get on the floor and manually stimulate the legs of a patient with paralysis. Today, robotic treadmills and exoskeletons can mimic the motions of manual therapy. Additionally, these robotic helpers have sensors that can help to track and monitor progress.
Concierge + Subscription Based Services
As a physical therapy clinic owner you probably know how difficult dealing with 3rd party insurance can be. Which is exactly why many physical therapy clinics are opening up their concierge and subscription based service models. This type of business model allows you to turn a healthy profit, while also allowing you to spend more time with your patients.
Keep in mind that pricing can and usually is a barrier for certain populations. However, because you can create and customize this payment method in any way you like, you can create affordable tiers that benefit everybody.
There’s a saying that goes, “if you want to go fast, go alone. But if you want to go far, go together.” Collaborative care in theory shouldn’t be innovative, unfortunately it’s still not the norm though. Focusing on collaboration over competition benefits not just you or a competitor but the patient as well.
Some benefits of collaborative care include:
- Reduction in patient healthcare spending
- A well-rounded approach to care
- Efficient referral process
- Improved health outcomes through provider collaboration
