WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. — Wednesday afternoon, Ivy Rehab and its network of physical therapy partners announced that they will be moving all their therapy online for patients to do remotely in accordance to executive orders put in place to prevent the spread of COVID-19. IvyRehab has over 225 outpatient physical, occupational, speech therapy and ABA clinics located throughout the Northeast, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and Southeast regions of the United States
"We are offering more options for our patients to receive therapy and giving those who are unable to be cared for in one of our centers, the choice to use either our digital telehealth visits or home therapy visits," said Michael Rucker, Ivy's Chief Executive Officer. "We want to make sure all of our past, current, and future patients can get the treatment they need, where and when it's best for them."
Ivy's telehealth platform, in partnership with PhysiTrack, connects patients to their licensed therapists through a secure, HIPAA-compliant, fully encrypted, two-way video-call system. Patients can do their therapy from the comfort of their home through a desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, iPad or tablet.
For patients who can't get to a clinic, but still need in-person therapy, Ivy's "HomeSTEP" program allows both new and existing patients to receive one-on-one evaluations and treatment sessions in the comfort and safety of their home— following strict safety guidelines.
