Why use telehealth in your
physical therapy practice?

Did you know that nearly 20% of physical therapy patients stop treatment within the first three visits? A full 70% never complete their care plan at all. That can add up to hundreds of thousands in lost revenue each year—not to mention the impact on health outcomes. While the reasons are complex, one issue can be addressed quite easily: Convenience.




Even beyond keeping individuals safe during a pandemic, offering physical therapy (PT) via telehealth has many benefits for both PTs and their patients. First and foremost is convenience.

Having the ability to provide virtual PT to patients in the comfort of their homes, on the road, or at work helps increase convenience for patients and their families. For those who live in rural areas or communities that lack a physical therapy provider, having access to virtual sessions can help them get the care they need without having to travel long distances.

The average physical therapy clinic sees up to 200 patients each week. ¹

Telehealth is also a great way to promote care plan adherence through a hybrid model. After the patient’s first in-person visit, future sessions can be done virtually. This added convenience makes it easier for patients to stick with their program without having to drive to the practice. And as we know, the best outcomes are achieved when patients complete their entire program. 

For patients who have unique needs, physical limitations, or privacy concerns, remote PT increases their access to therapists who specialize in their particular situation. In other words, being able to offer virtual PT via telehealth helps patients get the appropriate care they need when and where they need it. The result is improved outcomes and increased patient satisfaction.

Leveraging telehealth to provide virtual physical therapy has numerous financial benefits for practices. 


Reduce patient no-shows, late arrivals, and cancellations. Vidyo’s telehealth physical therapy services allow your organization to create customized reminders for your patients, helping to reduce missed appointments. Also, thanks to telemedicine, patients don’t need to worry about travel because they can join from the comfort of their homes.


See more patients without adding staff or overhead. Staff can now see more patients in less time with virtual calls. Telehealth therapy can improve staff productivity with less travel, provide easy access to patient records and transcripts, and eliminate miscommunication. Staff can also save time by conducting initial screenings through video.

Enhance patient satisfaction with flexible services. Offering telehealth therapy services are a crucial advantage when recruiting new clients. Patients can choose a provider based on their expertise and not worry about geographic barriers, serving people who can’t travel to your facility. Similarly, some patients are more comfortable speaking to a therapist from the comfort of their home, and now you can offer them that choice.


Improve patient outcomes. Telehealth therapy increases the likelihood patients will complete the treatment plan, thereby improving outcomes. With the option to collaborate between behavioral health therapists, patients, and families, everyone has a clear understanding of the patient’s treatment plan.
