The global crisis caused by the COVID-19 pandemic has meant the provision of healthcare has had to shift radically from being solely a clinically-based hands on approach to treating patients to having patients receive much of their care at home remotely. This is especially problematic for persons receiving some type of complex rehabilitation, such as for post-stroke, or for preventative care as in the case of fall prevention for older adults.
David Fried, CEO of Evolv, will discuss with Ian Slater the benefits and challenges of providing a home-based therapy technology solution to patients and look at specific examples of telerehabilitation programs being run in the UK through UCLH Queen Square and Hobbs Rehabilitation. David will also offer his expert insight into what he thinks will happen once the pandemic is under control.
