This may not be a super helpful post...but this week I learned that there really is a movement happening in this part of the PT world. I have been listening to Rob Vining's podcasts as much as I can this past week. He has a few podcasts, but the one I am referring to is about Telehealth specifically. To be honest all of his podcasts are amazing and you should check them out. If you don't know about Rob, he is a PT since 2004, I think, who has believes in telehealth PT since he got out of school. He has been pushing this movement to bring PT online since then and is super helpful with everything telehealth. If you learn anything from my blog, follow him and reach out to him, and you have a solid resource right there. But, this isn't a blog about Rob, although I will do one in the future on him.
Anyways, Rob has been at the forefront of telehealth PT. His telehealth 20 podcast is just starting and he is interviewing people in the telehealth PT arena. He is following 4 PT's over the year and seeing how telehealth is changing and being implemented in their practices. It is pretty cool to know you are not alone and hear from people who are doing it and having success doing it. Hearing others succeed is a great motivator. So, I would start by listening to his podcast. You can get it on iTunes, soundcloud, or whatever you use. Here is a link to the soundcloud site. He also does these podcasts on youtube.
So besides talking about how awesome Rob is, this week I also learned a little about medicare. However, I am still looking into all of this medicare stuff, and it seems like medicare really doesn't want to make things easy to understand. So, later this week I will supply some resources that I found beneficial in my hunt to answer the question...can we see people with medicare in the telehealth realm... So stay tuned.
Those are the big things I looked into this past week. I hope that is a little helpful, although I know it isn't a lot. I don't want to give away everything on day 3! :)
My name's Amanda and this is a blog about my adventure creating an online Physical Therapy based practice. I will share resources and updates on the process I am doing in order to hopefully give others an idea of where to start in the future.
