New York, NY (PRUnderground) May 25th, 2022

Essen Health Care, a leading healthcare network and group practice for underserved communities in New York State, announced today that they have launched a new, revolutionary Remote Therapeutic Monitoring program in collaboration with their partner WizeCare, an Israeli-based health technology company that is changing the way physical rehabilitation is delivered and utilized.

An extension of Essen’s innovative Remote Patient Monitoring program, Remote Therapeutic Monitoring (RTM) is helping the health care practice’s patients achieve optimal results in their recovery from orthopedic, neurological, and movement disorders, enabling direct observation beyond a hospital’s four walls and screening for deterioration

The WizeCare digital rehabilitation platform tracks patients’ movements home from any smart personal device (iOS, Android, web) without wearables or sensors and uses AI-powered algorithms to provide medical staff and patients with real-time analysis of the patients’ physical rehabilitation performance and progress. Clinical study results demostrated improved outcomes in 5 out of 6 patients and increased patient engagement rates by close to 80%.

“Using this new RTM platform from WizeCare, we’re seeing patients maximize their recovery times and improve their overall health.,” said Dr. Sumir Sahgal, Founder and Chief Medical Officer, Essen Health Care. “Best of all, our patients are 80 percent more compliant in their treatments, compared to an industry compliance rate of about 10 percent. That’s a huge win for our practices and patients.”

“Our comprehensive solution has transformed the physical therapy industry,” said WizeCare CEO, Roy Shteren. “Our RTM software as a medical device gathers and analyzes comprehensive information on patients and then automatically recommends personalized treatment plans enabling faster healthcare decision making. Providers can use these predictive insights, role-based workflows, and automation to deliver optimal and consistent care to their patients while making it more accessible and convenient.”
