Virtual physical therapy services are now available via Agile Virtual Care, a comprehensive telehealth solution to help make physical therapy convenient and safely accessible.
Headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but equipped to serve patients throughout the country, Agile Virtual Care will begin taking appointments immediately, according to a news release.
Created by physical therapists and powered by evidence-based treatments at home powered by HIPAA-compliant video communications, the Agile Virtual Care platform was designed to help people with a variety of musculoskeletal injuries or limitations receive evidence-based treatments at home, according to a media release from Agile Virtual Care.
“As people, we tend to crave convenience and quality, and we believe that the service we’re providing — top-notch care from licensed physical therapists paired with the comforts of home — will both resonate with patients and help them to reach their goals.”
— Richard Leaver, Chief Executive Officer of Alliance Physical Therapy Partners, a network of outpatient physical therapy clinics and operators of Agile Virtual Care
Via Agile Virtual Care’s modern approach to physical therapy, patients undergo an initial video consultation with a licensed physical therapist, where the discussion is centered on how the injury or situation took place, any pain or barriers they are experiencing, and the patient’s goals for recovery. That same physical therapist will then design a customized treatment plan and visit with the patient for every follow-up as they collaboratively work toward reaching the patient’s objectives.
Treatment plans and video tutorials of the proposed exercises are accessible at all times in the patient’s self-service web portal. The ability for the patient to have regular dialogue with their specific physical therapist between formal visits is also available.
Virtual physical therapy can treat the same conditions brick-and-mortar clinics address. In some cases, virtual physical therapy can even help patients avoid costly trips to urgent care and ER facilities.
Patients located in areas where an Alliance Physical Therapy Partners clinic exists have the ability to utilize a hybrid option, with the ability to see the same licensed physical therapist at visits both online and in-clinic.
Agile Virtual Care works with most insurance providers, though a self-pay rate is also available for patients who lack coverage or elect not to use it, and a referral from a provider is not typically necessary. The company is also considering adding services beyond just physical therapy and into more holistic health care, including wellness and weight management, the release continues.
