Does Telerehabilitation Work?
More than 50 peer-reviewed studies demonstrate that telerehabiliation can offer the same or better benefits seen from onsite treatment. Telehealth has been approved as an effective form of service delivery by almost all clinical licensing boards and associated professional organizations including:
American Medical Association
American Nursing Association
American Physical Therapy Association
American Occupational Therapy Association
American Speech and Hearing Association
Hospitals are also embracing telehealth as an adjunct means of treatment and monitoring at-risk patients, as well as collaborating with specialists outside of that area.
