Many patients have delayed care while they practice social distancing and abide by new state and federal stay-at-home laws. This interrupts care plans and has negative repercussions for chiropractic clinics. Under the law enacted on March 12, 2020, patients can now see their chiropractors via telehealth solutions get reimbursed under Medicare Part B.
My Virtual Doc™ is an AI-powered telehealth solution for conservative care. This proprietary system enables chiropractors to provide conservative care outside the confines of their office.
Co-founder and COO, Eric Groteke, DC, explained how it works. “Through My Virtual Doc, chiropractors can provide a secure link to their patients via a smartphone, PC or tablet. There’s no unique hardware needed. The chiropractor performs a standard history and evaluation. They explain the treatment plan to the patient and schedule the next telehealth solution. Then, My Virtual Doc’s chatbot functions as the chiropractor’s virtual assistant to document how the patient is doing between visits. The AI updates the chiropractor throughout the treatment plan. Patients are prompted throughout the day to record their activities and pain levels. My Virtual Doc then sends a daily report to the chiropractor.”
My Virtual Doc is the latest offer from My Medical Hub™, disrupter in the musculoskeletal health industry. Walter Groteke, CEO and co-founder of My Medical Hub, noted the importance of businesses supporting each other in these times of dramatic change. “We’re seeing patients and providers suffering as a result of social distancing requirements. We’re really glad that we can provide this support for both.”
My Medical Hub has combined AI with a proprietary screening technique to provide a series of offerings to employers and individuals. Most importantly, when chiropractic care is required, it can be provided (in part) via an adaptive video interface with the AI coach.
This interface enables chiropractors to provide continuity of care under the new telehealth law. Effective March 12, 2020, doctors of chiropractic are now recognized as authorized physicians and authorized providers of telehealth services under Medicare Part B. Most providers will be able charge rates similar to what they have been for in-office visits. Providers should confirm with their insurance partners the correct billing codes when invoicing.
Headquartered in Tampa, Florida, My Medical HUB enables self-insurance of musculoskeletal care, pre-screening to avoid injury and AI-powered telehealth when conservative care is required. The solution is HIPAA compliant and its approach has been vetted and proven. Eric Groteke, DC, authored a 4.5-year study, published in The Journal of Medicine, yielding a 96% specificity in benchmarking and detecting risk factors that predispose patients to injuries.
