The move to introduce full-time remote physiotherapy roles comes following the rapid expansion of Ascenti’s award-winning digitally enabled MSK physiotherapy services, which were first established in 2018 and enabled the company to seamlessly switch patients to remote treatment at the start of the covid pandemic.
Ascenti delivered more than 3 million minutes of online consultations in 2021 through their app and progressive technology and 90% of patients were satisfied with the effectiveness of the treatment.
Thanks to the quality of Ascenti’s services there was a seismic shift in people’s attitudes and an eagerness to adopt remote physiotherapy treatment longer term, which means that their Virtual Physiotherapy Team is now expanding.
Chief Operating Officer and Physiotherapist by background, Adam Jarvis, explains: “When we set up our remote virtual MSK physiotherapy services back in 2018 we knew that if we were going to do this, we were going to do it right.
“Since then, we have worked hard to develop a service that is truly integrated with our business and puts patient outcomes and quality at the forefront of our advancements in technology. At the same time, we have worked to grow a thriving Virtual Physiotherapy team who are provided with the support, training, and development they need in this unique home-based role, using new treatment methodologies and tech.”
Ascenti’s Virtual Physiotherapy team are not holding consultations using Skype or Zoom due to covid, as the majority of other MSK providers have been. They use sophisticated inhouse workflow systems, app technology and have specialist training, support, and tools for delivering remote treatment.
