NEW YORK – July 30, 2019 – BetterPT, a healthcare technology platform company providing end-to-end digital connectivity between physical therapists (PT), patients, and physicians, and BlueJay Mobile Health, a full-service mobile technology company transforming healthcare delivery and care team coordination through AI-powered telehealth, today announced a partnership to bridge patients, PTs and healthcare providers through the full continuum of care. Through this collaboration, BetterPT connects patients with the right clinics via its streamlined point of entry, and BlueJay Mobile Health facilitates online patient engagement and care.
"This important and first-of-its-kind partnership between BetterPT and BlueJay Mobile Health brings together two innovative companies that are committed to transforming and improving healthcare experiences for patients across the full continuum of care,” said Greg Peters, CEO of BetterPT. “As the first AI-powered telehealth company with a focus on rehabilitation care, BlueJay Mobile Health is a natural extension to BetterPT’s interoperable and streamlined point of entry for patients and providers, and strengthens our position as the leading specialized PT marketplace in the U.S."
The partnership enables patients needing physical therapy to quickly access care through BetterPT’s platform and healthcare providers to provide better care through BlueJay’s AI-powered patient engagement. With BetterPT’s interoperable application, patients can find clinics in their local area that best fit their needs, accept their insurance and immediately request an appointment, all with a few clicks. BetterPT’s inbound patient management (IPM) solution offers operational efficiencies to clinics, helping to cut down administrative burden and paperwork. BlueJay Mobile Health’s comprehensive technology facilitates online patient and provider engagement, including PT assessments, treatment programs, and outcomes tracking, as well as interdisciplinary coordination to improve patient outcomes and reduce costs.
