HARTFORD, Conn., Oct. 15, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- WizeCare, a health technology company that establishes a new paradigm of physical rehabilitation, is helping patients achieve optimal results in their recovery for orthopedic, neurological, and movement disorders. The cloud-based solution is an interactive patient application that delivers AI video sessions while using MoveAI™ technology to detect movement and receive real-time feedback from clinicians.
Given the technology's excellent results, Essen Health Care, a health system utilizing the WizeCare platform, partnered and invested in the company earlier this year as part of its Series A $6 million round funding. "WizeCare's technology has proven to have a tremendous impact on our patients' adherence to their rehabilitation goals. On average, recovery times from post-surgical treatment were shortened by 25% and patients were 80 percent more compliant in their treatment, compared to the traditional 10 percent," stated Dr. Sumir Sahgal, Founder and Chief Medical Officer, Essen Health Care.
CareCentrix, NYU Langone, Accessible Home Health, and Sweeten Health are some of the other notable health entities also using the technology. Dr. Sahgal added, "We chose to partner with WizeCare based on their mission to advance the health ecosystem. The technology is not limited to just treating musculoskeletal conditions. We find the true value in how it helps patients of all ages and conditions."
WizeCare will be attending the HLTH Conference, located BCEC Hall B, Booth 1147-8, taking place on October 17-20 to further discuss the partnership and how the platform's intuitive and engaging rehabilitation experience is using predictive analytics to support KPIs and goals for healthcare organizations.
CEO of WizeCare, Roy Shteren, a practicing physical therapist for more than 15 years and who will be attending HLTH stated, "Our success in the delivery of care is attributed to the healthcare specialists, clinicians, business analytics, and technology experts that share a belief in shifting to a value-based care model. Based on the three clinical studies WizeCare has successfully concluded, we can proudly say that the model enables patients to reach better clinical outcomes and shorter recovery time, using WizeCare's platform, at the comfort of their homes.
