Rocklin, Ca. & Overland Park, Ks. - March 17, 2022 - Bardavon Health Innovations announces our seamless In-Home/At-Work physical therapy treatment program for workers’ compensation patients. Bardavon has partnered with Luna Physical Therapy to provide on-demand, outpatient in-home and at-work physical therapy services. This mobile treatment program is designed to care for injured workers in the environment that best suits their specific need.
Putting the injured worker at the center of all we do has been Bardavon’s driving focus since inception. When workers’ compensation injured workers face obstacles such as medical vulnerabilities and mobility/transportation issues, or are in the acute stage of healing, the In-Home/At-Work program provides easy and quick access to quality care. These benefits increase the likelihood the injured worker will complete all treatment sessions.
According to a 2020 WCRI Study, The Timing of Physical Therapy for Low Back Pain: Does It Matter in Workers’ Compensation?, “early PT within 14 days after injury is likely to be beneficial, associated with a lower utilization of medical services, lower overall medical costs, and shorter temporary disability (TD) duration…The findings of [the study] support the value of ordering PT early rather than late, suggesting that clinicians and payors should be encouraged to work proactively to remove barriers to early PT.”
Bardavon’s In-Home/At-Work program starts patients in physical therapy treatment quickly. The program utilizes a limited number of visits in the patient’s home or work setting during the acute stage of care. Patients are then seamlessly transitioned in-clinic for the remainder of treatment so that they can meet the physical demands of their job and improve return-to-work outcomes.
“I am very excited to announce the availability of Bardavon’s seamless In-Home/At-Work therapy treatment option,” said Dorothy Riviere, Bardavon Chief Clinical Officer. “This option compliments our Therapy Services Pathway™ program, which optimizes physical therapy treatment delivery. By using clinical algorithms, Bardavon ensures that injured workers are placed on the proper treatment path every time.”
“Luna brings the clinic to the injured worker—it’s that simple,” said Palak Shah, Luna Co-Founder and Head of Clinical Services. “These are patients who otherwise are experiencing delays in starting care, have transportation issues, or otherwise prefer the convenience of the delivery model.”
Bardavon’s Therapy Services Pathway program considers the injured worker’s unique situation and recommends the proper treatment path given their personal factors. The addition of this mobile program to the Therapy Services Pathway means claims adjusters have many options for referral placement with the Bardavon national network. Based on Bardavon’s recommendation, they can choose in-clinic, in-home/at-work, telerehabilitation, or blended/hybrid. These options ensure continuous treatment that meets patient needs.
