The new service includes digital triage, appointment booking, virtual consultations with Ascenti physiotherapists and online exercise prescription, helping members to access the treatment and support they need at the touch of a button, 24/7 and without the need for a referral from a GP.
The service is fully integrated with Ascenti’s bespoke patient workflow system meaning that Ascenti physiotherapists are providing Vitality members with video exercises, tracking their progress and adjusting rehabilitation programs accordingly to provide them with a fully integrated digital care solution.
Ascenti’s expertise in digital services, coupled with their own in-house digital triage solution and revolutionary patient facing app underpins the new partnership, which will enhance and improve the existing digital health solutions currently available to Vitality members.
Stephanie Dobrikova, CEO at Ascenti, commented: “We are delighted to be partnering with Vitality and we are excited to be able to provide their members with access to our revolutionary digital musculoskeletal physiotherapy services.
She added: “Our unrivalled experience and in-house digital triage solutions will help individuals in their journey towards improved health and wellbeing, by giving them the expert physiotherapy care they need at the touch of a button, in a way that is most convenient for them.”
Dr Keith Klintworth, Managing Director at VitalityHealth, commented: “We want to make it easier for our members to get quicker access to the diagnostics and the treatment they need. Through our new partnership with Ascenti, Vitality members will be able to book virtual physiotherapy consultations directly with Ascenti clinicians and access digital physiotherapy services at a time convenient for them. This is an exciting proposition for our members, further simplifying the way they can support and manage their health.”
