Nuffield launches online physiotherapy app

Nuffield Health partners with Leicester Real World Evidence Unit

Nuffield Health has launched an online physiotherapy service to support patients during the Covid-19 pandemic.

The charity has partnered with global telehealth provider Physitrack to introduce the Nuffield Health My Physio App, where insured and self-funding patients can access online treatment from a chartered physiotherapist and track outcomes.

Nuffield Health head of commercial and operational development Martin Fidock said: ‘We are a long-established provider of physiotherapy services with a focus on delivering clinical excellence and customer focussed solutions. The delivery of our Nuffield Health My Physio App will allow our chartered physiotherapists to continue to provide expert diagnosis, advice and rehabilitation to manage patient recovery in the comfort of their own home.’

Henrik Molin, CEO and co-founder of Physitrack, added: ‘In just a few days, Nuffield Health and Physitrack have co-developed a tailored version of Physitrack’s online patient assessment and management platform. The new version has been designed to fit the needs of Nuffield Health patients’ enabling the physio team to continue to deliver care plans for 330,000 patients, many of which are in lockdown in their homes, using telehealth and home exercise prescription.’
