About

Remote Rehab, Personalized Care

 

What We Do

RecoveryPlus.health replaces facilities-based rehab programs with state-of-the-art, personalized remote solutions for rehab and prehab (primary prevention) for cardiac, pulmonary and vascular health, long-term COVID, and other medical conditions. The intelligent platform eliminates barriers to critically needed care, empowers patients to accelerate their recovery, and improves long-term survival rates while at home.

RecoveryPlus.health’s remote services include direct telehealth contact with an integrated team of physiologists, MDs, RNs, dieticians, patient care managers, nurse practitioners, and other medical professionals, as well as coordination with the prescribing physician to ensure seamless 24/7 support and quality control.

Why We Care

Our mission is personal. The original concept was developed by a surgeon in China as a service for his own parents, who needed at-home rehabilitation when no such program existed.

RecoveryPlus.health was founded with the advanced vision to deliver care and recovery programs to those with the greatest need who are least able to access it. RecoveryPlus.health is now available to anyone who needs remote patient care for a variety of issues.
