In the world of physiotherapy, the holiday season can be challenging for many practitioners and clinics. Many patients choose to take a break and suspend their treatments during this period, which can result in a significant decrease in revenue. However, there is an innovative solution that will allow you to keep your doors open and keep billing: telerehabilitation.
In this article, we will explore how you can take advantage of this tool to provide remote patient care and ensure business continuity during the holidays.
Telerehabilitation: a cost-effective and convenient solution.
Telerehabilitation, also known as digital physiotherapy, has gained popularity in recent years due to its numerous benefits. Not only is it a cost-effective option for patients, saving time and money on travel, but it also allows physiotherapy professionals to reach a wider audience. During holidays, this becomes even more important as many patients are away from their usual clinic. With telerehabilitation, you can maintain an ongoing relationship with them no matter where they are.
Benefits of telerehabilitation during holidays:
Continuity of treatment: By offering physiotherapy sessions online, your patients will be able to continue their treatment uninterrupted during their holidays. This is especially important in cases of chronic injuries or conditions that require constant attention. Continuity of treatment not only improves results, but also strengthens your patients’ confidence and loyalty.
Flexible hours: Telerehabilitation gives you the flexibility to set longer opening hours during holidays. This means you can accommodate your patients’ schedules, even if they are in different time zones or have travel commitments. The convenience and flexibility offered by online care are highly valued by patients, which will contribute to patient satisfaction and retention.
Expanding your market: With telerehabilitation, you are no longer geographically limited to your physical location. You will be able to reach patients in other cities or even abroad. This will open up new business opportunities and allow you to expand your customer base.
Effective communication with your patients
To ensure the success of telerehabilitation during the holidays, it is essential to establish effective communication with your patients. Be sure to inform them in advance about this option and explain in detail how the online session process will work. Provide clear guidance on the platform you will use and any equipment or accessories they may need to participate in the sessions. You can also offer additional resources, such as video tutorials or explanatory documents, to help them prepare.
On our ReHub platform you will find a simple patient guide with step-by-step instructions. Thanks to ReHub’s accurate reports, you can contact your patients via chat or video call if you detect any anomalies in the execution of the exercises or if the patient reports pain.
