    Enlisting Brand Evangelists for Your Practice and the Profession

    One of the most frequently discussed topics in the realm of rehab therapy (PT, OT, and SLP) is brand awareness. When the general public thinks “back pain,” they most commonly think “chiropractor” for the solution. How can we achieve such instant associations in the general public for physical therapy?

However, the concept of a truly “plugged in” healthcare system is far from reality. Still, groups like the Center for Connected Health are pushing the industry forward. Pioneering founder, Joseph C. Kvedar, MD, and his center are driving the tech-enabled, patient-centric vision. Recently, Discovery.com featured Dr. Kvedar, along with the …

    5 Things PTs Need to Know About Telehealth in 2016

    In 2015, lawmakers at both the federal and state levels recognized—and took action to alleviate—the lack of readily available and affordable healthcare options: namely, through legislation that opened the door for telehealth expansion. In fact, this Medscape article reveals that in the last year alone, “200 bills addressing telehealth were introduced in 42 states.” That’s a lot of legislative legwork. And while we can’t shrink and teleport healthcare providers through a television— Willy Wonka-style —quite yet, the …

    How Do Wearables Affect Patient Engagement?

    The idea of patient engagement is hardly new. But, if you were to define patient engagement in your own practice, what would you discover? Is it simply a buzz phrase? (Yeah; that’s a real thing ). Or, is there more depth to your definition?

    #BrandPT .

Why? Because the #BrandPT Twitter discussion revolves around empowering an important segment of the healthcare industry—physical therapists—and thus empowers the entire industry as a whole.   However, this post really isn't about #BrandPT specifically. It has to do with the overall mission to rebrand the …
