SAN DIEGO, July 17, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Reflexion Health, a virtual physical therapy company, announced today that it has entered into an agreement with Delta Joint Management to bring VERA, Reflexion Health's FDA-cleared Virtual Exercise Rehabilitation Assistant, into the homes of patients recovering from total joint replacement surgery. VERA is a digital platform that combines avatar coaching and 3D biometrics with tools that enable clinicians to remotely monitor patients beyond the traditional in-clinic setting.
"As a treating physician, it's important to me that I have visibility into how a patient is doing after surgery," said Stephen Lucey, M.D., an orthopedic surgeon at Delta Joint Management and Sports Medicine and Joint Replacement. "VERA gives me that insight into patient recovery even when my patients are one or two states away – increasing our potential footprint as a practice and our ability to help patients near and far."
Delta Joint Management is an innovative group of three private orthopedic practices in Greensboro, N.C. centered around bringing value-based care to postoperative total joint replacement patients. As a physician-run group, Delta's doctors not only conduct total joint replacements but also manage payments via the bundled model. This helps ensure that clinical and financial decisions are aligned to best serve patient needs while cutting inefficient spending.
"We're always looking for ways to improve patient outcomes, reduce costs and increase value to the healthcare system," added Dr. Lucey. "Reflexion Health's VERA technology is intuitive, smart and patient-friendly."
VERA is uniquely designed to deliver home-based, on-demand therapy sessions. The platform's engaging avatar – combined with remote monitoring and telehealth visits – saves patients from the burden of finding rides, dealing with traffic, or making appointments.
Reflexion Health has completed clinical studies at a number of academic medical centers across the U.S. – demonstrating that VERA improves compliance and saves time, steps and costs in post-acute care rehabilitation.
"We're proud to partner with Delta Joint Management to provide patient-focused, data-driven and value-based care," said Joseph Smith, M.D., Ph.D., chief executive officer, Reflexion Health.
On Thursday, Nov. 1 at 10 a.m. CT, Delta Joint Management and Reflexion Health will host a session on "Physician-Driven Bundles in Outpatient Total Joint Surgery: A New Value-Based Paradigm" just before the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons (AAHKS) Annual Meeting.
