Manage care, videos with an app

Therapist Essentials is the mobile app version of Physical Therapy In Hand®.

The app includes many of the patient insights and treatment options of the full web application.

In addition, the app enables you to use the camera on your mobile device to securely record, store, and distribute your own exercise videos through a step-by-step wizard.

You can also use previously recorded videos that are on your device's camera roll or accessible storage. (See below for more details.)

Therapist Essentials is available for Apple and Android devices from the app stores.

Key Features

  • Patient Dashboard: Get an at-a-glance status of your patients through the same color-coded view that is in the web application

  • Messaging: Trade HIPAA-compliant information (texts, photos, videos, and voice clips) directly in the app
  • Videos: Create and securely distribute custom exercise videos to the patient app
Therapist Essentials patient dashboard
Patient Dashboard

Add new patients to your account here. The dashboard also shows the progress of your current patients using the same criteria found in Physical Therapy In Hand®. Greens and yellows probably means things are good; reds and oranges might mean a follow-up message is in order.

Therapist Essentials HIPAA-compliant messages
Secure Messages

Review and respond to patient messages (texts, photos, videos, or audio clips) using HIPAA-compliant communication. Messages traded here are updated in your Physical Therapy In Hand® account the next time you sign in.

Real-time Stats

Tap on any patient's record in the dashboard to reveal his or her tabulated compliance, pain levels, and recovery information reports in easy-to-read charts.

A step-by-step wizard ensures videos created with Therapist Essentials include the same elements as our other videos: Still photos, instructions, narration, cues and tips, and announcements. You can also create private (PHI protected) videos for individual patients.

Record Videos

Therapist Essentials uses the camera and microphone on your smartphone or tablet to record custom exercise videos. You can also use previously recorded videos stored on your device's camera roll.

Automatic Connection

Therapist Essentials automatically uploads completed videos to your full Physical Therapy In Hand® account. It works the other direction also, where videos stored in your Physical Therapy In Hand® account (the "My Videos" section) are accessible by Therapist Essentials.
