Ergonomic consultancy is a growing area where the physio's role can never be overstated. <br />Consumer Research Key Findings <br />Who do you go to if • You have a neck pain or a back problem • You puled a muscle while playing tennis • You are recovering from knee surgery or a fracture • You have just had surgery and find moving around difficult • or you are a certain age and face reduced mobility The Answer • Most Indians would visit a Ortho, Neuro or Cardiac specialist in addition to their GP. • Visiting a Physio or Sports Injury doctor is seldom done. <br />Our Research shows -1 • People dont visit Physio’s unless they are referred by a doctor • The perception is that Physio is ‘not medicine’ as it does not involve a medical intervention such as surgery or pills. • Patients who have recovered after a Physiotherapy treatment can’t help but recommend it further. • However, knowledge of physiotherapy and its benefits is largely limited. • In addition, willingness to spend on Physiotherapy is limited, as most patients think after 3-5 sessions that ‘I can do this at home, why should I pay for this’? In contrast, patients shell out large amounts of money for interventions such as surgery and medication. <br />Our Research shows - 2 • Physio clinics are in a low value trap as most Physio clinics are not branded. Services are generic and not differentiated. Patients are also seldom educated on procedures, why they need to do certain things and how they can hurt themselves if they dont take care. • Physiotherapy clinics are also not provided enough referrals by specialists as specialists run the risk of losing patients. For example in many hospitals, Physio and Ortho OPD exists side by side but very few recommendations are actually sent to the Physio. According to some estimates as many as 50% of ortho patients at some point or the other need Physio help. However, referrals are seldom more than 10 to 15% (see slides 13,14,15). • Other specialists such as Cardio, Pulmonary, Geriatric, Neuro and Pediatric only refer patients in severe distress. The perception of Physio as a wellness centre in a hospital does not exist. <br />Our Research shows - 3 About 50% About 80% patients follow exercise regimen for a few people dont days and drop off - over time quantity of pain killers need surgery increases so do doctor visits As the pain increases many patients Prescribed visit other painkillers doctors or and explore alternative Ortho exercises therapies like problems Ayurveda and Accupuncture Prescribed Need painkillers The Hospital surgery or clinic and eventually exercises loses the dissatisfied patient Patient gets cured <br />Reasons for dissatisfaction Source - NHS UK Patients with chronic back pain Similar concerns in Indian hospitals <br />Reasons for dissatisfaction Source - NHS UK Patients with fractured neck of femur: Similar concerns in Indian hospitals <br />The Wellness Market • The wellness market consists of Available at Independent clinics or at • Physiotherapy hospitals, Low visibility, Low value Low visibility, Low consumer knowledge, • Acupuncture and average value perception Mainly available at Spas or Medi Spas, • Ayurvedic therapies very popular in south India. High visibility, Available at all spectrums of value chain <br />The Consumer Need • Consumer needs are changing for the following reasons: • Increased interest in sports • increase in number of surgeries (knee replacement for women, cancer, hear etc.) • Increased interest in fitness - running clubs, gyms • Increase in work related injuries (carpel tunnel, cervical issues due to work on computers) <br />The Need to change • There is a need to increase value perception of physiotherapy in both doctors and patients. • A unique integration of a centre that provides - Physiotherapy, Acupuncture and Ayurvedic therapies would ensure high visibility, higher success rates in patient treatment and higher value perceptions. <br />The Change Framework <br />Diagnosis • Integrate the need for Physiotherapy and Rehab at the point of diagnosis of the Patient disease or medical intervention. • Ortho • Geriatrics • Pediatrics Specialist • Cardiopulmonary • Neuro • Any other surgical intervention that may impact mobility Referral to Physio <br />Solution • Form a collaborative framework for solving the patients problem and develop a roadmap - Physiotherapy - Neurophysiotherapy - Pilates and Spinal Rehabilitation Medication + Therapy - Special treatment for Sports Injuries - Acupuncture - Ayurvedic therapy Patient Surgery - Treatment after surgery (including home care regime) Collaborative team - Physio + Specialist <br />Tasks • Increase Revenue (It is estimated that a Therapy centre can generate a profit of 3 lakhs per month) • Make the activity revenue generating and not just support services • Structure the services - brand - to upsell at the levels of 500 to 1500 per visit • Focus on selling packages and not 1 off treatments.
