Technology will produce better clinical outcomes

Hospital-to-Home Telehealth Sessions™

Can surpass what can be achieved in the clinic
We needed to develop a therapy modality that went beyond conventional rehab therapy. Our challenge was the plight of traumatic brain injury (TBI) patients who could no longer benefit from in-clinic therapy services, but were too disabled to return to their normal lives.

The Institute for Cognitive Prosthetics (ICP) succeeded with what has become Hospital-to-Home Telehealth Sessions™. The vast majority of “plateaued” patients achieved a substantial therapy goal within 2 weeks of beginning with this innovative modality, and they continued to make gains in their level of functioning. We discovered that this approach could serve other diseases/clinical problems that involve intensive occupational therapy and speech therapy.

The outstanding clinical outcomes are the result of:

  • Our strong Patient-Centered approach
  • Highly personalized therapy software
  • New therapists’ tools for treating challenging cases
  • Many important advantages to treatment when neither the patient nor the clinician travels for the session

Our Process & Technology

Our ProcessICP’s technology is driven by our strong Patient-Centered orientation. It is highly personalized to the individual patient, and enables shared decision-making. Personalizing the software also makes it intuitive to each patient along their course of treatment. It uses low-cost, high-powered computer hardware – tablets and smartphones as well as Windows notebooks that are commonly found in the home – meaning that there is no investment in equipment or infrastructure software that must be installed by the facility’s IT staff.

The technology also addresses the needs of the facility in competitive environments.

Hospital-to-Home Telehealth Sessions™ enables a facility to differentiate its products based on customer convenience, on state-of-the-art technology, and on clinical and financial outcomes. This provides a rich set of advantages for all stakeholders involved. The Hospital-to-Home Telehealth Sessions™ process makes sense to the patient with and the patient’s loved ones. It makes sense to be treated at home so that clinicians can observer the home environment and gain a better understanding of the patient. It makes sense to them to use the patient’s activities in their environment as the context for therapy. It makes sense to them to use highly personalized software that is intuitive the patient.
