Abilitech Medical’s tele-evaluation is a free and confidential assessment that occurs virtually through HIPAA-compliant video conferencing on a patient’s camera-enabled computer, smartphone or tablet.
The evaluation typically lasts 30 minutes. Patients are asked to perform specific movements demonstrating their unaided upper-limb strength and ranges of motion. They’ll also be asked general questions about their medical history, insurance details and contact information.
It is suggested that caregivers be on hand for the evaluation, though their involvement is not necessarily imperative. Patients are asked to share any accommodations they need for hearing impairments, non-English language translations or similar prior to the evaluation.
