KING OF PRUSSIA, Pa.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Research shows that patient-centered treatment improves outcomes in physical medicine. MedRisk examines these findings in its new white paper, “Patient-centered Strategies for Better Outcomes.”
The paper highlights several studies on patient-centered approaches to physical therapy and their positive impacts on clinical outcomes and patient experience. These include:
- Evidence-based treatment guidelines that are detailed enough to account for severity, chronicity and comorbidities.
- Proactive, peer-to-peer clinical collaboration on treatment strategies.
- Patient education and advocacy in advance of treatment and during the episode of care.
- Patient-to-provider matching services that take injury type, outcomes and the patient’s unique needs and preferences into consideration.
- Integrated telerehabilitation services.
