Digital Physical Therapy 101: Understanding the Basics

January 6, 2023
If there’s anything the last few years have shown us, it’s that the adoption of digital tools will continue to accelerate – and the physical therapy profession is no exception. Healthcare and technology now go hand-in-hand and incorporating telehealth or remote monitoring tools as part of clinical practice is becoming increasingly common. As such, it’s important to gain an early understanding of the basics. Clinicians and their support staff should have insight into the definitions and common terms associated with digital health, especially as insurance companies begin to normalize digital health tools as part of their reimbursable clinical services.
