As the world speeds up, people rely more on mobile technology to keep them updated while on the go. Smartphones, Netbooks and Tablets are used for more communicate, manage their finances and keep their schedules in check. As we come to accept these technologies as a part of our daily lives, we near the final frontier: Healthcare.
As usual, healthcare is the final application of emerging technology. The unfortunate part about this is that it's probably the segment that could benefit the most.
The Beryl Institute recently showed a 10% increase in patient satisfaction and a 40% improvement in satisfaction with educational materials when interactive technology is provided. Physical Therapists have a great opportunity to improve the patient experience. Many therapists give their patients a home exercise program when they leave the clinic. Using something interactive, specifically video, can increase patient satisfaction and in turn create better outcomes.
In our effort to keep physical therapists on the cutting edge of technology, WebPT is releasing an integrated Home Exercise Program that includes video. This program can be sent directly through email to give patients access to their HEP wherever they like.
Mobile technology is everywhere, and healthcare is just catching up. Keeping your clinic up to date with the latest technology will improve the patient experience, and WebPT is working to ensure that you get there. We will be hosting a Webinar on October 4th and October 6th to explain how the new HEP feature will work. If you are interested in learning more, please register here.
