Therapist Megan MacCutcheon at Vienna Counseling had a “good” problem when it came to her treatment plans. On the one hand, Megan’s clients would happily do their mindfulness techniques and guided meditations with her during a therapy session. At home, though? Her clients admitted that they wouldn’t do them on their own, outside of therapy.
The delivery method for her home exercises didn’t help the compliance issue, either. Megan would give clients paper handouts or email printouts for their home assignments. Every time their “homework” changed, she’d need to give out new printouts and tell them which ones were “old” and should be saved for later.
(Good luck keeping all that straight!)
Patients weren’t the only ones having trouble tracking all of the homework paperwork.
“One of my problems is not remembering who I assigned what to,” Megan admits. “By the end of the day, I would be digging through old notes just to see which patients had what exercises.” As she was mulling through these issues, Megan started treatment with a local physical therapist who used AC Health.
As a patient, she loved how the exercises were right there listed for her, with video prompts and reminders. Could she use AC Health in her practice to solve her patient compliance issue? (Spoiler alert – Yes, she could! We’re thrilled to have you, Megan.)
