Healthcare technology platform BetterPT and mobile technology company BlueJay Mobile Health announce a partnership to help bridge patients, PTs and healthcare providers through the full continuum of care.

Through this collaboration, BetterPT connects patients with the right clinics via its streamlined point of entry, and BlueJay Mobile Health–a provider of artificial intelligence (AI)-powered telehealth—facilitates online patient engagement and care.

“This important and first-of-its-kind partnership between BetterPT and BlueJay Mobile Health brings together two innovative companies that are committed to transforming and improving healthcare experiences for patients across the full continuum of care,” says Greg Peters, CEO of BetterPT, in a media release.

The partnership enables patients needing physical therapy to quickly access care through BetterPT’s platform and healthcare providers to provide better care through BlueJay’s AI-powered patient engagement. With BetterPT’s interoperable application, patients can find clinics in their local area that best fit their needs, accept their insurance and immediately request an appointment, all with a few clicks.

BetterPT features an inbound patient management (IPM) solution designed to offer operational efficiencies to clinics, helping to cut down administrative burden and paperwork. BlueJay Mobile Health’s comprehensive technology facilitates online patient and provider engagement, including PT assessments, treatment programs, and outcomes tracking, as well as interdisciplinary coordination to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs, the release explains.

“We are pleased to partner with BetterPT and look forward to leveraging our unique and complementary capabilities to increase patient access to care and also enable better care delivery among healthcare providers,” states Tony Zhang, CEO of Livermore, Calif-headquartered BlueJay Mobile Health.

“This strategic collaboration expands our networks and adds another important layer of efficiency, convenience and connectivity to our comprehensive technology platform.”
