Thanks again to the NANS Education Committee for the opportunity to speak with a great team of panelists and Valet Health on how digital technologies can improve patient experience and market your practice. I spoke specifically about Mobile Applications like Limber Health and how we can improve patient outcomes with therapy adherence.
Mobile apps are becoming increasingly popular in healthcare, and for good reason. They can improve patient engagement and provide better access to healthcare services. Limber Health is one such mobile app that can help improve patient engagement. In this blog, we'll take a look at how mobile apps like Limber Health can improve patient engagement.
Accessibility: Mobile apps are accessible from anywhere at any time, which makes it easier for patients to access healthcare services. Limber Health allows patients to receive engaging home exercise therapy video content prescribed by their provider, message their healthcare providers, track outcomes, and view their progress from their mobile device. This accessibility can help improve patient engagement because patients are more likely to engage with their healthcare provider if it's easy and convenient.
Education: Mobile apps like Limber Health can provide patients with educational resources to help them manage their health. For example, the app can provide information on how to manage a chronic condition and some important information that their provider communicated after a procedure. This education can help improve patient engagement because patients are more likely to be engaged in their healthcare when they have the knowledge they need to make informed decisions.
Communication: Mobile apps can improve communication between patients and healthcare providers. Patients can message their healthcare provider directly through the app, which can help them get the answers they need quickly. Limber Health helps communicate data of therapy adherence and patient reported outcomes progress back to the provider so providers can use real-time data to make clinical decisions on the next step of their care. Communication can help improve patient engagement because patients are more likely to be engaged in their healthcare when they feel like their healthcare provider is listening and responding to their needs.
Motivation: Mobile apps like Limber Health can help motivate patients to engage in their healthcare. For example, the app can provide reminders to help patients stay on track with their healthcare. Motivation can help improve patient engagement because patients are more likely to be engaged in their healthcare when they feel like they are making progress towards their health goals.
By using a mobile app, patients can take a more active role in their healthcare and be more engaged in their healthcare journey.
