Announcing Physical Therapy Delivered
Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation and Luna Partner
to Provide Home-based Outpatient Physical Therapy in Dallas-Fort Worth
DALLAS, Texas, July 30, 2021 — Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation, a joint venture between Baylor Scott & White Health and Select Medical, today announced a partnership with Luna, a leading provider of on-demand physical therapy, to deliver outpatient rehabilitation care in the home setting throughout the Dallas-Fort Worth metropolitan area.
As an extension of Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation’s services across its more than 70 outpatient physical therapy clinics in the north Texas region, patients who are appropriate for home-based treatment will have the opportunity to utilize Luna’s technology platform to request an appointment and be matched to a local therapist based on specialty, geography, schedules, and other factors.
“We look forward to continuing to meet the clinical needs of our patients and communities with this new treatment option,” said Fabian Polo, president of Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation. “The partnership with Luna will allow us to provide physical therapy services to patients in need of rehabilitation care but who may be unable to travel to one of our outpatient clinics or prefer to be treated in the comfort of their home.”
Within the Luna platform, therapists will create an individualized care plan for each patient, communicate with the patient between appointments, prescribe exercises and track overall recovery. The same therapist will work with the patient until the end of the treatment plan, ensuring consistent and quality care.
“Patient-centered solutions are critical to increasing engagement and ultimately generating better outcomes,” said Palak Shah, co-founder and head of clinical operations at Luna. “We’re excited to bring our solution to Baylor Scott & White Institute for Rehabilitation to help patients in the Dallas-Fort Worth area have access to the quality care they need when and where they want it.”
