We focus on speech therapy, physical therapy, and occupational therapy as well as provide case management for children ages zero through 21.

Her belief that therapy is most effective when conducted one-on-one, in a familiar environment that includes family members and caregivers led to the creation of a company that has since grown to include close to one hundred speech, physical and occupational therapists, over 1,000 patients and branches in both Dallas and Fort Worth; however, that original commitment to providing quality health care to every child serviced has never changed.

How Digital Transformation Enables a Systematic Response to the Coronavirus Outbreak

Article | March 11, 2020

For many years now, we’ve all been talking about a worldwide digital transformation in healthcare. One of the key motivations for healthcare’s digital transformation has been to enable the shift from labor-intensive, manual, in-person encounters in healthcare facilities and replace them with encounters that are instead digital, possibly automated, and which can take place wherever the patient happens to beAcross industries, we talk about revolutionizing the customer experience. In healthcare, this revolution has focused on experiences for each patient, every health plan member, every healthcare provider, and all healthcare employees. And when it comes to providing the best care for people who are already ill, we also know that hospitals and medical offices are dangerous places. After all, those who are sick can infect those that are healthy—and this includes our healthcare providers.

It’s the old mantra of the right care, in the right setting, at the right time.

AI Moving into Healthcare, Regulatory Challenges Await

Article | March 13, 2020

In recent years, artificial intelligence (AI) has started to turn up everywhere you look. It powers our ever-present digital assistants; it helps recommend entertainment options and has even begun to reshape the way businesses carry out their everyday operations. As AI moves further into healthcare, regulatory challenges await. The truth is, there isn’t a single major industry that isn’t being changed by the rapid development of AI-powered technology. There is one, though, that stands out among all others: healthcare. The global healthcare industry arguably has more to gain from advances in AI than any other industry. It’s already being put to use in aiding diagnoses, monitoring patient health data to look for early warning signs of disease, and managing medication doses and prescriptions. It’s even proven adept at predicting patient mortality.
