Telehealth is revolutionizing healthcare, offers ‘low-cost, mass-scaling’ opportunity, says eWellness CEO

Proactive Investors Tuesday, 7 May 2019
Telehealth is the natural evolution of health care in the digital world and empowers physical therapists to remotely interact with patients, which greatly improves the efficiency and affordability of health care, according to a white paper authored by eWellness Healthcare Corp (OTCQB:EWLL) CEO Darwin Fogt. Nearly 74% of polled patients in the US would use telehealth if it was offered, Fogt writes in the report, which as  published in Impact magazine. “Many times, patients who are experiencing musculoskeletal discomfort can be assessed through a video evaluation and prescribed exercises that will help resolve their issue,” he writes. DEEP DIVE: eWellness Healthcare sparks digital revolution in physical therapy “Other times, patients may just need a quick answer to a question regarding stretching or postural education. Due to the unparalleled access to care, patients who might have otherwise sought care for low back pain from an urgent care center, for example, won’t have to absorb those costly interventions, and they are saved the time and effort of getting themselves to a care center,” Fogt writes.    The advent of interoperable electronic health records (EHR), secure cloud storage, and wearable health trackers have incentivized consumers to jump on to the telehealth bandwagon. “Rural communities that may not have a physical therapist within miles can now access a physical therapist’s expertise through a technology platform to get the help the patients need,” he explains. Enhancing care Fogt, who co-founded eWellness Healthcare, writes that telehealth offers “unprecedented levels” of access to care for the patient and “a low-cost, mass-scaling opportunity for the practice.” “Cash-based, post discharge maintenance programs can easily be delivered via telehealth,” writes Fogt. “In addition, informative lectures and real-time online virtual group classes are now possible as a new revenue stream.” As a physical therapy telehealth company, eWellness Healthcare offers insurance-reimbursable, real-time, distance-monitored treatments. The company’s PHZIO platform lowers treatment costs, expands treatment access and improves patient compliance. The company is on a quest to transform the way the estimated $35 billion market for physical therapy works in the US by licensing its PHZIO platform to physical therapist clinics. The Culver City, California-based company has operations in the US and Canada. Contact Uttara Choudhury at [email protected] Follow her on Twitter: @UttaraProactive
