Patients are turning to Telehealth for social distancing
Just a few short weeks ago, we could never have imagined the impact COVID-19 would have on our daily lives. Businesses and schools have closed and people are staying in their homes. But one thing that hasn’t changed is the need for therapy. Because we are considered essential, many of our clinics have remained open. However, the introduction of our new Telehealth service is giving people an opportunity to continue their physical, occupational, and speech therapy treatments from the comfort of their homes.
Ivy Rehab partners, Southeastern Physical Therapy and Southeastern Therapy for Kids, talked with 13News Now about our Telehealth service and how it allows patients to connect with their therapists through their computers or cell phones. In general, our clinics are seeing the benefits of treating patients of all ages and conditions through Telehealth, but as this segment points out, children with developmental delays are finding this service incredibly helpful because they aren’t in school right now.
