An appointment for virtual physiotherapy
Virtual care in healthcare means that the usual services physicians provide to the patient (the examination, diagnosis, monitoring, follow-up, treatment, treatment decisions) are based on information and documents transmitted via video or a smartphone, for example. The virtual care must have the patient’s informed consent. A virtual care is not a suitable option if the patient requires a physical examination. The healthcare professional will carefully assess the situation of the patient in question in order to decide whether virtual care is a viable option.
Appropriate patient document entries are made for the virtual care in the customer register of the Lapin Liikuntaklinikka in accordance with the provisions of data security and data protection. As for normal physiotherapy and doctor visits, you will receive Kela’s direct compensation.
If necessary, the client will be given the opportunity for a personal reception or the client can be referred to another treatment center for reception.
