CNS has delivered more than 125,000 hours of virtual rehabilitation to patients since 2020
Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS), a provider of treatment for traumatic and acquired brain injury, has introduced telerehabilitation services to offer patients greater flexibility in their therapy program. CNS’ telerehabilitation services offer enhancements beyond its previously offered telehealth program. Since the beginning of 2020, CNS has delivered more than 125,000 hours of telehealth care to patients. Using the RingCentral Video® platform, powered by Zoom, patients receive full rehabilitation at home, virtually access therapies, clinicians and their treatment team from their CNS clinic.
“CNS cares about rehabilitation success both in-clinic and at home, and telerehabilitation therapies focus on building life skills that lead to independence,” said Chris Persel, Regional Director of Clinical Services and Director of Behavior Programming at Centre for Neuro Skills. “Now, in their own environment, patients can work with their therapy team using the telerehabilitation toolkit as a desktop box of essentials to help build memory, cognition, reasoning, dexterity, education and other personal management details.”
CNS telerehabilitation services include:
- Therapy in real-time: All treatment modules are provided and vital living skills are taught; in-clinic therapies are replicated in the patient’s home setting and staff can suggest adaptive aids by viewing the home environment; return-to-work scenarios that can be modeled and practiced at home; therapists teach safety skills that patients can practice in real time.
- Telerehabilitation kit: CNS sends a boxed kit of learning aids to telerehabilitation and some hybrid patients. Included is a user’s guide for navigating RingCentral Video, learning tools, notebooks, calculator, pens, a water bottle and a desktop whiteboard.
- Hybrid rehabilitation: Patients can opt for both in-clinic and virtual treatment.
- Telemedicine: Patients, therapists and families can consult online with physicians.
In a recent national survey by the Brain Injury Association of America, telehealth was found to be a highly effective therapy platform. According to the survey of more than 400 providers, 94% of therapists reported that their patients’ recovery progressed using telehealth.
