Force Therapeutics announces that BronxCare Health System, the largest health and teaching hospital system serving the South and Central Bronx, will implement its digital care management platform. The Force Therapeutics platform provides virtual physical therapy, customized care paths, and remote education in both Spanish and English to help orthopedic patients meet their recovery goals. Patients can learn what they need to know—such as how to prepare for surgery or monitor postoperative swelling—from home, in the language they are most comfortable speaking.
Instead of a traditional course of outpatient physical therapy, which can require 10 or more in-person visits, orthopedic surgeons can prescribe virtual physical therapy through the Force Therapeutics platform, saving patients significant time and expense. Force’s adaptive physical therapy follows the health system’s orthopedic protocols, and uses patient input to adjust the intensity and timing of exercises.
The Force Therapeutics platform is also utilized to drive the collection of validated, patient-reported outcomes measures (PROMs) via texts or emails featuring encrypted, no-password links. On average, Force clients collect 89% of preoperative PROMs and 88% of postoperative PROMs, enabling the high rates of matched outcomes that are necessary to fully assess a complete orthopedic care experience. All PROMs are automatically submitted to the American Joint Replacement Registry.
