Telerehabilitation, while not new, has emerged as a valuable tool and as a subset of a larger practice area - digital healthcare. It allows for evidence-based evaluation and treatment in a way that doesn’t jeopardize a patients’ well-being and reduces geographical restrictions. 

We can develop a therapeutic relationship, address pain and dysfunction, educate, provide rehab and exercise programs, and help people improve the quality of their lives.

The objective of this course is to introduce you to the basics of setting up a virtual practice including the who, what, when, why, where, how.

  1. Intro to telerehab: what is it? Who is using it? How are they using it? The patient response.
    • Definitions and terminology: Digital healthcare, telerehab, telehealth
  2. Technology: platforms, cameras, mics, and setup
  3. Legal concerns, insurance and reimbursement considerations
  4. Clinician perspectives from previous webinars to exploring why and how they use virtual care
