Physitrack, founded in 2012, is a digital healthcare company and the provider of a solution for patient engagement that encompasses clinical home exercise and education prescription, outcomes tracking and Telehealth for physical rehabilitation and prevention.
Physitrack was part of the first cohort of the NHS’s Digital London accelerator program, an effort that was founded in order to identify and promote digital solutions with the capability to help the UK public healthcare system improve care quality.
Physitrack is part of select group of companies in the healthcare sector that were invited to become part of Apple’s Mobility Partner Program (MPP) at its launch in 2015. MPP is spearheaded by some of Apple’s best application and business development professionals and provides partners with user interface and user experience design guidance, coordinates from Apple’s Cupertino headquarters.
The idea for Physitrack came about in late 2011, when a relative of one the co-founders was given an unclear paper home exercise handout after a knee operation. This greatly reduced his motivation to do his home exercise program. The founders decided that there should be a better way to encourage and track patient adherence and thereby achieving faster and more effective recovery.
For over three years, the Physitrack team worked tirelessly and initially self-funded, and later with the support of funds from friends and family, to design and develop what would eventually become a new global standard in patient engagement and patient outcome tracking that is today used in over 100 countries around the world, by more than one million patients per year.
Physitrack was born out of a desire to create a more effective way to prescribe exercise programs, as well as improve patient outcomes and reduce unnecessary wastage in healthcare systems around the world.
Physitrack’s research work is done in collaboration with clinical experts from around the world: physiotherapists from public and private healthcare, including several NHS trusts, the Australian and Irish Physiotherapy associations, exercise physiologists, osteopaths and chiropractors. The clinical research is paired with both in-house and outsourced user interface and user experience development to create a solution that fits the needs of both healthcare practitioners and patients.
We also work with some of the world’s leading Universities in the areas of education and research, including the Universities of Melbourne and Sydney, La Trobe University, Cardiff University, Edith Cowan University, Victoria University, University of Western Australia and many others.
