What is Concentra Telerehab?

Concentra's goal is to make the injury care process more convenient for employers and employees. Concentra Telerehab is a telemedicine solution designed to maintain continuity of care treatment through recovery, improving treatment outcomes and yielding high levels of satisfaction. It offers the same benefits of in-person physical and occupational therapy, as employees can complete their therapy regimens with a single therapist.

          • What do I need for my employees to access Concentra Telerehab?

            To access Concentra Telerehab, employees will need their photo ID, internet access, and an internet-enabled device (i.e., smartphone, tablet, or computer) with a webcam and microphone. A quiet, private place should also be set aside for the employee’s visit with the physical and occupational therapist.

          • Can employees access Concentra Telerehab on any mobile device?

            Recommended mobile device options are as follows:

            • Any Apple (iOS) device newer than 3 years old and running iOS 8 or higher
            • Any Android device newer than 2 years old and running Android 4.4 or higher

            For the best experience using the mobile app, a Wi-Fi connection of 4G or higher is recommended using a current iOS or Android device with a mic and webcam.

             
          • How long does a Concentra Telerehab visit last?

            The length of each Telerehab visit varies depending on each employee’s treatment needs. It’s worth noting that with telemedicine, no time is spent traveling to and from a medical facility.

          • How would I know if an employee should use Concentra Telerehab instead of seeing a physical or occupational therapist in person?

            An employee will be referred to Concentra Telerehab by a clinician or physical or occupational therapist at one of our medical centers. The physical or occupational therapist or clinician will recommend Concentra Telerehab based on the employee’s medical history and when deemed clinically appropriate.

          • How will my employee set up Concentra Telerehab appointments?

            After an employee is referred to Telerehab during a visit or appointment at a medical center, their initial Telerehab appointment will be scheduled during checkout. After their first Telerehab appointment, the employee will schedule a follow-up appointment, if necessary, with the physical therapist or physical or occupational therapist support specialist.

          • How secure is a Concentra Telerehab visit?

            Concentra Telerehab deploys a HIPAA-compliant system of secure communication to main the integrity of your employees’ protected health information (PHI). The platform is equipped to monitor communications for prevention of accidental or malicious breaches. In addition, Concentra does not record video visits or store patient records in this platform.

          • Is Concentra Telerehab available 24/7/365?

            Currently, Concentra Telerehab is available during the same local business hours as the medical center of the physical or occupational therapist who will be working with the employee.

          • Is Concentra Telerehab less expensive than seeing a physical or occupational therapist in person?

            The visit charge is the same, as you’re still paying for the physical or occupational therapist’s expertise. The cost savings come from the amount of time saved because employees:

            • Don’t have to leave work for treatment
            • Don’t spend time sitting in a waiting room
            • Can continue their treatment without the roadblocks that may prevent an in-person visit, potentially improving recovery time for better return-to-work outcomes.
          • Is technical support available with Concentra Telerehab?

            Yes, Concentra Telerehab receives the same 24/7 technical support of Concentra Telemed.
