eWellness has Developed a New Partnership Outreach Program to All General Telemedicine Providers Focused on Treating Back Pain

/EIN News/ -- Culver City, CA, Aug. 14, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eWellness Healthcare Corporation – (OTCQB: EWLL) – a provider of the state of the art PHZIO platform for the physical therapy (PT) and telehealth markets, announced that it has developed a new partnership outreach program to all general telemedicine providers focused on treating back pain. Currently, no general telehealth providers are referring back pain patients for physical therapy treatments. EWLL PHZIO treatment platform is an ideal referral partner for these patients. We initially plan on targeting partnership telehealth providers including the following 20 companies: MeMD, Teledoc, CareClix, ConsultaDoctor, Kareo, iCliniq, Mend, AmericanWell, MDLive, Telespecialists, MDAligne, StatDoctors, Doctor On Demand, SpecialistOnCall, LiveHealth, VirtuWell, PlushCare, RingaDoc, HealthSpot and HealthExpress.

Darwin Fogt, CEO of EWLL stated,”If you have back pain, you are in the majority. Estimates vary, but approximately 60% to 80% of us will get at least mild back pain at some time in our lives. In 2007 alone, about 27 million US adults aged 18 or older (11% of the total adult population) reported having back pain, according to the Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality (“AHRQ”). About 70% of these people – 19.1 million – sought treatment by a doctor, the agency says. It also stated that more women (10.9 million) received medical treatment for their back pain than did men (8.2 million). So, adoption of our PHZIO platform by general telehealth providers has the possibility of generating up to 19.1 million new patient visits to our telehealth partners annually.”

Mr. Fogt added,” Back pain is one of the most expensive health problems, although sources vary as to where it ranks in relation to other common conditions such as heart disease, stroke, cancer, diabetes, and arthritis. According to the AHRQ, in 2007 a total of $30.3 billion was paid to providers, such as doctors, physical therapists, and others, as well as to pharmacies. The Journal of the American Medical Association reports that spine care costs reached $85.9 billion in 2005. But spine treatment is a part of a $2.2 trillion healthcare industry. Although costs were high, the AHRQ reports they represented only 3% of total medical expenditures in the US in 2007. The Journal of The American Medical Association says that low back pain (alone) accounted for 2% of all doctor visits in 2005.
