Physitrack launches two new enterprise-focused offerings for its digital physical therapy, telehealth, and patient engagement platform.
The first, called PhysiApp 2.0, is a revamp of the company’s patient-facing physical therapy app that is better suited for long-term treatment and guided patient education.
The second, called Physitrack AI, is a tool for enterprises to better collect data and manage their patient populations.
Both offerings are highly customizable so that they can conform to the needs of a specific enterprise, according to Henrik Molin, CEO and cofounder of Physitrack, in a news story from Mobihealthnews.
Founded in 2012, Physitrack offers an alternative to the traditional paper-based exercise regimens supplied to patients preparing for or recovering from surgery. It features a virtual platform designed to monitor patients remotely and track their compliance with their exercise regimens.
Physitrack’s new version of its app still provides physical therapy education and support to patients, but better supports the adjustable, multi-year patient communication strategies often required by enterprises, Molin explains in the news story.
“PhysiApp itself wasn’t really made for that type of stuff. It was more made for limited periods of time, rehab over a few weeks maybe,” he comments. “We looked at this and we saw that we could do so much more with this, and that became the more custom offering PhysiApp 2.0, which is only available to larger companies.”
Meanwhile, Physitrack AI can help enterprises begin managing their patients prior to their first spoken interaction with the organization. Among its primary features is an onboarding algorithm that allows patients to input their information and needs through the app.
Along with reducing the burden on an organization by prompting the first visit, a telehealth call, or self-management in the case of a minor injury, Molin says that this kind of service can help engage patients who’d normally shy away from a live call, the news story continues.
Molin further notes that Physitrack AI’s algorithms can be adjusted by the customer to better match triaging results to their organization’s capabilities.
“Our clients can define their own questionnaires, their own triage flows, and endpoints,” he states. “We, Physitrack, will then be one step removed from that actual clinical process.”
