Luna, a provider of on-demand physical therapy, announces the introduction of the Rehab at Home service line for health systems and orthopedic groups, enabling them to bring outpatient physical therapy treatment to patients’ homes.
Luna has launched the service with collaborations with more than a dozen of the top health systems and orthopedic groups in the U.S. to help them deliver on-demand physical therapy to patients, including Emory Healthcare, Scripps Health, Rothman Orthopaedic Institute, Resurgens Orthopaedics, and Modern Orthopedics, all announced in 2021.
“We are excited to expand our rehabilitation services with on-demand, in-home physical therapy as an alternative to visiting an outpatient clinic. By partnering with Luna, we’re able to bring safe, convenient, and high-quality care to people in their homes, removing the barriers to care of time and transportation and making it as easy as possible to complete their treatment plan.”
— Scott D. Boden, MD, Director of the Emory Orthopaedics & Spine Center and Vice President for Business Innovation for Emory Healthcare
Provide Care Where Needed
By partnering with Luna, systems are able to provide care where patients need it, making it more convenient and improving adherence without needing to build new clinics.
Health systems partnering with Luna benefit from instant access to technology, processes, resources, and support. Luna’s technology platform matches patients with a therapist from Luna’s local networks based on specialty, geography, schedules, and other factors. Patients work with the same therapist throughout their care regimen to receive care while also being able to use the platform to set next appointment times, perform therapist-prescribed exercises, and track their progress, a media release from Rocklin, Calif-based Luna explains.
“Luna’s Rehab at Home offering is an entirely new way to do physical therapy that benefits not only health systems and patients, but also therapists. Therapists are able to sign up with Luna and take on new appointments, often in addition to their full-time PT jobs, allowing them to earn extra income on their own schedule.”
— Palak Shah, Co-founder and Head of Clinical Operations at Luna
With the Luna Protocols capability, announced in April, therapists are able to access tailored rehabilitation instructions to ensure patients receive quality, standardized care that helps them reach the rehab timeline set by their surgeon. Therapists are able to log findings from the appointment, including any warning signs which can be escalated to the patients’ surgery team.
The technology allows therapists to standardize the quality of care and align with instructions from the surgeon in a way that is not typical in a traditional clinic setting, the release continues.
In addition to Emory and Scripps, Luna works with health systems, orthopedic clinics, and PT groups across 32 markets and 19 states, including Arizona, California, Delaware, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Minnesota, New York, North Carolina, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Virginia, Texas, and Washington State.
