Early intervention of physical therapy can reduce the need for unnecessary medication, imaging, or surgery. Moreover, delaying treatment can lead to additional expenses and more chronic conditions. In the current environment, face-to-face physical therapy visits are less viable due to increasing demands on the healthcare system, as well as the enactment of stay-at-home measures.
Salaso Health is a HIPAA compliant and secure telemedicine service that allows medical providers to continue person-centered care remotely. Using the Salaso platform, providers, physical therapists, and assistants can reach out to patients through a telemedicine visit and assign exercises during the virtual appointment.
After the clinician sets up the Salaso account, the next step is to log in, add patients, and begin scheduling telemedicine visits. During the visit, providers can prescribe exercises based on evidence-based protocols in the form of HD videos created by Salaso.
