TapestryHealth’s Physician-Staffed Platform Benefits Physical Therapy
Mark Hirschhorn is a health care professional with an institutional investment background who accepted leadership of TapestryHealth in early 2022. One benefit for patients served by Mark Hirschhorn’s platform, which combines remote vitals monitoring with face-to-face physician support, is that telemedicine can be seamlessly integrated with physical therapy (PT).
In a time of continued COVID-19 concerns, telehealth is a proven way of ensuring that both patients and providers stay safe and socially distanced. Within the PT industry, this approach gives patients access to specialized physicians and their on-site physical therapists. This helps facilitate quick, successful rehabilitation and prevents situations of prolonged and unsatisfactory recovery.
The primary care physicians who monitor patients’ conditions can also evaluate therapy programs in real time. They communicate with therapists on a regular basis, as well as dietary teams and recreational staff members. This results in engaged care that leads to a comfortable and productive therapeutic process for patients with diverse health issues. In addition to evaluating how rehabilitation is progressing, primary care physicians are able to access data such as eating habits and make sure that patients are benefitting from an active social life throughout the recovery phase.
