Jill Carnahan, PT, DPT, a licensed physical therapist on MedRisks staff, and the companys Regional Sales Manager Patricia Dadura will discuss ways telemedicine is being used in workers compensation–including for physical therapy–at the New Jersey Self-Insurers Association Annual Meeting on November 2.
Most people think of physical therapy as hands on, and it is, but new research shows that telerehabilitation can be very effective too, said Carnahan.
The session will cover advanced telehealth technologies and how employers can leverage them for different conditions along with regulatory considerations. Panelists will discuss the training and credentialing a telerehabilitation physical therapist should have and provide criteria for determining if a patient is a good candidate for telerehabilitation.
Starting at 2:00 pm on November 2, the session is part of NJSIAs annual meeting, which will be held at the Holiday Inn in East Windsor, New Jersey on November 2. For more information, please see https://www.njselfinsurers.com.
