COVER Magazine is a health insurance and life protection publication and their annual awards programme celebrates the best the industry has to offer. We are in excellent company having been shortlisted alongside AXA Health, Bupa, HCML, Vitality and WPA, among others.
This nomination recognises Ascenti Reach, our new guided-self-management app that encompasses a clinically-robust digital assessment with automated rehabilitation programmes overseen by a real physiotherapist. The Reach service encourages patients to remain engaged in their recovery through regularly updating exercise programmes and presenting progress graphically, with physios providing further encouragement and support through ‘chat’.
Our data shows that Ascenti Reach achieves high patient engagement and satisfaction: 49% use the app 5+ times a week, and 29% use it 3-4 times a week; 94% are satisfied after 12 weeks of treatment and 86% would recommend to friends and family.
Last year Ascenti was shortlisted by COVER for the Outstanding Healthcare Collaboration award along with Vitality for our revolutionary end-to-end digital MSK physiotherapy service.
Adam Jarvis, Chief Operating Officer, commented: “It’s great to be on the COVER shortlist again, this time for our exciting new service, Ascenti Reach. Reach offers so many benefits to patients, including the convenience of not having to make arrangements to attend in-clinic appointments, and the reassurance of being able to quickly check things with a clinician whenever you need to.
“We know how special it is to have an in-house digital team and to own our tech. We’re proud of the reputation Ascenti has built as innovators within physiotherapy and are grateful to COVER for this recognition.”
The winners will be announced during a virtual ceremony on Thursday 30 June following the COVER Health Insurance Uncovered broadcast.
