Connecting Technology and Physical Therapy to Improve Patient Well-Being

application development

Often, the way in which clinicians provide rehabilitation instructions to patients does not produce optimal results.  In 2015, Dr. Jason Gray of Gray Chiropractic set out to find a way to improve patient well-being and clinical service by introducing new technology into corrective exercise practices.

In 2016, Dr. Gray released the My Rehab Connection solution as a platform for clinicians to effectively communicate exercise plans to their patients. Practitioners can hand-select exercises from an extensive library and deliver routines in a mobile application.

The patient has free, unlimited access to all plans which have step-by-step instructions along with a visual image of each step and a full demonstration video.  This allows patients to feel that they are properly performing the exercises throughout the duration of the plan.

 Key Features

  • Clinic may upload their logo as well as edit their address, phone number, email, hours, and social media links (Yelp, Google+, Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, YouTube). If using an online appointment scheduling service, a link and icon can take their patients directly to it.
  • As of January 2017, there are nearly 500 pre-configured exercises which are easily sorted, filtered, and searched.  New content is added by Dr. Gray weekly.
  • Exercises may be customized for each patient (sets, reps, weight).
  • Clinics may copy pre-built exercises and save/edit a copy in their personal exercise library.  Photos, videos and instructions may be modified if desired.
  • Clinics may develop an unlimited amount of original content (including their own photos and videos).
  • Exercises commonly prescribed together may be combined into exercise groups for easy searching and assignment.
  • Patients can choose to save 1 – 2 MB videos locally (to save bandwidth or for offline/limited coverage use) or stream them to reduce storage requirements (ideal when connected to WiFi).
  • Free 30-day trial; subscriptions start at $9/month per clinic (no per-patient cost).

Take it for a spin now!

We’d love for you to take a look at the app from a Gray Chiropractic patient perspective.  Simply send an email to myrehabconnection@copelanddata.com and you will immediately receive demo account credentials and direct links to download the app from Google Play or Apple’s App Store.

Video Overview

Dr. Gray produced a quick video overview of the app and portal. His website (MyRehabConnection.com) is full of screenshots and tutorials that demonstrate the use of the portal and on how the patient plans are managed.

Dr. Gray on building a solution with CDS

“I reached out to Copeland Data Systems for help on a home exercise software/app project we wanted to develop. From start to finish Tim and his group did an amazing job helping us think through the mechanics of the project and walking us through the technical side of things. They were an absolute pleasure to work with and delivered a great finished product that was exactly what we wanted. They continue to provide the support we need moving forward. Thanks guys!”

What’s under the hood?

This was sizable project that required careful planning and technical design before before the development stages.  Many unique technologies were brought together for this project, including third party web-based video conversion and PayPal’s recurring payments to manage subscriptions.  If you are interested in some of the technical aspects of this project, give us a few minutes and we will be happy to tell you all about it (we actually live for this kind of geeky stuff).
