Genie Health platform proven to improve PT compliance rates 

Genie Health (formerly PT Genie, LLC) is proud to announce a new partnership with Azalea Orthopedics, a founding division of OrthoLoneStar, PLLC in Texas. It is the second founding practice of OrthoLoneStar to adopt the company’s innovative, AI-powered, digital physical therapy mobile app and platform. Physicians at Texas Orthopaedic Associates have been utilizing Genie Health’s offering for patient care since early 2021.  

The alliance will optimize patient recovery and satisfaction through a mobile app that uses real body markers to track reps, speed, anatomic metrics, range of motion and mistake detection. Genie Health’s platform enables providers to measure their patient’s progress throughout their physical therapy protocol and keeps them connected with patients remotely.  

“We recently incorporated Genie Health into our total joint practice as an additional method to provide physical therapy for nonoperative, as well as Preop/postoperative, protocols. For the motivated patient as well as the rural patients with cumbersome drives, this has been an excellent addition to the armamentarium we can provide to our total joint patients. Especially in the world of value-based care, this provides a low cost and high-quality option for a large portion of our patients with minimal disruption to workflow in a high-volume practice. Most importantly, patients love it too,” says Dr. Ken Kaminski of Azalea Orthopedics. 

According to Genie Health patient surveys, when using the Genie Health platform, patients recovered 60 percent faster, their pain was reduced by 50 percent, and they reported a 90 percent increase in satisfaction with their traditional PT program.* 

“We are incredibly proud to bring our platform to more patients in East Texas. Our platform provides genuine value for orthopedic surgeons and physical therapy providers, giving them the ability to maintain closer relationships with their patients and tailor treatment to deliver excellent recovery outcomes,” says Tim Hedke, Chief Financial and Operations Officer of Genie Health.
