Cutting Edge Telerehab Platform To Showcase Benefits at HIMSS
Trainer Rx demonstrates how digital therapeutics can improve patient access and compliance to therapy while solving the challenges surrounding data transparency.
March 5, 2018 — Trainer Rx, a leading mhealth innovator, will showcase its telerehabilitation (telerehab) platform at the Intelligent Hospital™ Pavilion (IHP) during the HIMSS 2018 Conference & Exhibition at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, NV. HIMSS, which stands for Healthcare Information Management Systems Society, runs from March 5 – 8.
The IHP is the destination for live demonstrations of the latest technologies in the healthcare ecosystem. HIMSS attendees will experience the Trainer Rx platform (booth #11657-11), which is designed to help patients recover from orthopedic injuries through pre- and post-surgery rehabilitation at home. Trainer Rx, along with Phillips, Bodimetrics, and other innovative digital health companies, will be showcasing their transformative technologies as part of IHP.
“By showcasing Trainer Rx at HIMSS, we demonstrate the platform’s ability to disrupt the healthcare rehabilitation ecosystem,” said Michael Oberlander, MD, president and chief medical officer of Trainer Rx. “The platform utilizes proven evidence-based protocols and can be integrated into the patient journey seamlessly, reducing costs for providers and patients.”
Trainer Rx uses an intelligent design, cloud technology that patients can access anytime, anywhere, and in any device. Like most physical therapies, the platform is first prescribed by providers but then can be utilized by patients for up to a year for one low fee. Providers can view patient adherence and outcomes data in real time, and the platform integrates with EHR systems, including Athena Health.
Patients who utilize Trainer Rx for recovery after injury have reported statistically significant pain reduction. For example, those who received hip arthroplasty and used the Trainer Rx platform for rehabilitation reported a 45.9% reduction in pain score using the visual analog scale (VAS Pain).
The Trainer Rx platform (booth 11657-11) will be featured in six scenarios at IHP where attendees will learn how the telerehab platform is applied, starting at Prehab, Post-Operative Recovery, and then moving to the iHome Suite Living Room (remote care devices and “smart” home technologies). The scenario demonstration ends at the Doctor’s Office for follow-up care.
The company also will participate in two panel presentations:
- Knowledge Theater: Dr. Mike Oberlander, Orthopedic Surgeon, founder and president of Trainer Rx will present on the topic, “Beyond Paper: Evidence-Based Telerehab” on Wednesday, March 7 from 11:30-11:50 a.m. PT.
- Innovation Theater: Ed Brown, founder and CEO of the Ontario Telemedicine Network, will moderate a panel discussion called “Designing for the Patient: Tips, Experiences in Digital Health.” Panel presenters include Trainer Rx, Cirrus MD, Masimo and iRXReminder on Wednesday, March 7 from 5 to 6 p.m. PT.
“Hospitals are making extraordinary efforts to improve outcomes and patient engagement, while reducing costs,” said Harry Pappas, founder and CEO of the Intelligent Health Association, (IHA). “It’s exciting to have Trainer Rx at IHP because it uniquely showcases how to solve today’s rehabilitation challenges by providing a one-stop shop for patients to recover at home.”
The IHA is a global, technology-based and technology-focused nonprofit organization comprising communities all operating under one infrastructure with a common goal—accelerate the “Evolution to the Health Revolution™.”
HIMSS 2018 Conference & Exhibition brings together more than 45,000 professionals globally to help uncover the promise of health information and technology.
