April 27, 2020
Bakersfield, Calif. – Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS), a premier provider of traumatic and acquired brain injury rehabilitation services, announced today that all patient therapy sessions will be delivered remotely via its existing telehealth technology.
“Centre for Neuro Skills has taken steps to maintain the continuity of care for our patients during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said David Harrington, president and COO of Centre for Neuro Skills. “Based on guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and local health officials, we are now remotely delivering the same high-quality, individualized treatment to individuals recovering from brain injury. Our highest priority is the safety and health of our patients, staff and the public. Telehealth is one example of how CNS is providing innovative care to its patients.”
All CNS patients – day treatment, outpatient and in-patient – will receive their therapeutic dosing through telehealth. This includes the full spectrum of CNS’ therapeutic treatments and patient communications, including: counseling, speech therapy, physical therapy, occupational therapy, education therapy, case management, family communication, business partner communication and physician or specialist consultation. Therapy sessions will not be provided in-person at clinics.
Telehealth has been recognized as a safe means of delivering care during the current coronavirus public health emergency. CNS’ telehealth program utilizes the secure and HIPAA-compliant Ring Central platform, powered by Zoom. The platform supports real-time audio and visual interactions between staff and patients.
In compliance with safety precautions for patients and staff, CNS is still accepting new patients at all six facilities in California and Texas. New day treatment patients will remain at home and receive their evaluations and services through telehealth.
