What Is Intellivisit?
RCW has partnered with Intellivisit to provide patients with an alternative to a traditional in-person clinician visit for certain types of conditions. With Intellivisit, you will have the convenience of accessing care virtually via desktop, mobile or tablet. This system uses Intellivisit’s advanced technology to help clinicians diagnose and treat you virtually. It’s another way RCW delivers the safe, high-quality care you’re used to receiving.
What conditions are treated?
Intellivisit should be used for the onset of new illnesses or injuries such as a cough, influenza, aches and pains, minor injuries and skin conditions. Intellivisit should not be used for chronic conditions or emergencies.
How does it work?
A virtual visit begins at your convenience when you need it. Once you enter your symptoms into Intellivisit, your information is transmitted to RCW’s team of clinicians to diagnose and treat. As part of the diagnosis and treatment plan, the clinician will send necessary prescriptions to your pharmacy if the clinician determines it is needed. If a diagnosis and treatment plan is unable to be made, you may be referred to come into the RCW clinic.
BEHAVORIAL HEALTH THERAPY & LIFESTYLE MODIFICATION
RCW Primary Health offers a variety of resources to address your mental wellness needs.
The Behavioral Health Therapist offers short-term, solution focused therapy for you, your spouse and/or dependents to age 26. The Behavioral Health Therapist works with you to address a variety of mental health concerns such as stress management, depression or anxiety.
If you are interested in lifestyle modification for mental wellness, a Certified Health Education Specialist (CHES) will help you determine the best path. This may include Yoga, meditation, health coaching or referrals as appropriate. The CHES periodically offers behavior screening and intervention during clinic appointments.
To schedule a visit with the Behavioral Health Therapist or the CHES, call the RCW Primary Health Clinic at (608) 782-5139.
RELEASE TO HOME PHYSICAL THERAPY PROGRAM
Physical therapy is a type of treatment you may need when health problems make it hard to move around and do everyday tasks. It helps you move better and may relieve pain. It also helps improve or restore your physical function and your fitness level.
The goal of physical therapy is to make daily tasks and activities easier. For example, it may help with walking, going up stairs, or getting in and out of bed.
Recommended Related to Pain Management
Physical therapy can help with recovery after some surgeries. Your doctor may suggest physical therapy for injuries or long-term health problems such as:
Tendon or ligament problems, such as an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury, a meniscus tear or plantar fasciitis
Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis
Physical therapy may be used alone or with other treatments.
Physical therapy occurs in a clinic, hospital, nursing home, your own home (through home health agencies), school, or a sports or fitness setting.
What does a physical therapist do?
Your physical therapist will examine you and make a treatment plan. Depending on your health problem, your therapist will help you with flexibility, strength, endurance, coordination, and/or balance.
First, your therapist will try to reduce your pain and swelling. Then he or she will probably work to increase your flexibility, strength, and endurance. Physical therapy almost always includes exercise. It can include stretching, core exercises, weight lifting, and walking. Your physical therapist may teach you an exercise program so you can do it at home. Your physical therapist also may use manual therapy, education, and techniques such as heat, cold, water, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation. Treatment may cause mild soreness or swelling. This is normal, but talk to your physical therapist if it bothers you.
Where can I continue my therapy after I have been released if I do not have the proper equipment?
When you have been released to a home exercise program it doesn’t always mean that it will occur within your home. Some of your exercises and activities require the use of equipment, like a stationary bike or specific weight resistance machines, or cannot be accomplished within your home, such as swimming or walking. Therefore, think of it more as a release to “on your own” exercise program and consider RCW Fitness as your exercise home. Although RCW Fitness does not staff physical therapists nor does it have a therapeutic pool it does have a full range of exercise equipment, trained exercise professionals, and a wide selection of group exercise classes to support a release to home physical therapy program. The RCW Fitness website now allows you to share with your physical therapist all of the available equipment that will encourage compliance and will promote continued progress with your home program.
