Orthopaedic Associates of Zanesville has instituted a new virtual lifestyle health solution, Prescribe FIT, designed specifically for orthopedic patients to decrease weight, reduce pain, improve mobility, and better prepare for and recover from surgery. We're embracing the use of this innovative technology to provide more comprehensive and consistent care for our patients.
The Prescribe FIT program was put In place with the goal of improving patient health through simple changes to nutrition, physical activity, and lifestyle. It's also covered by insurance through Medicare, Medicaid, and most commercial insurance carriers. Our team will check your benefits eligibility and financial responsibility for the program prior to your enrollment.
Prescribe FIT is a proven lifestyle program—not a fad diet or short-lived workout plan—that helps you improve your health at home by focusing on the root causes of your knee, hip, ankle, back and joint issues.
You will routinely engage in appropriate exercise and learn about eating better. You will be provided a Bluetooth scale which pairs with a smart device to send daily body weight readings to your doctor.
You will also be matched with a Care Coordinator for supportive conversations and personalized recommendations to support healthy lifestyle changes and a reduction or prevention of chronic conditions.
1: Enroll in the Program
Your doctor will determine if Prescribe FIT is a good match for your health goals. Once your doctor prescribes the at-home program, you receive a link from our practice and can enroll on the Prescribe FIT website.
2: Connect with Your Health Coach
Each patient is matched with a personal Care Coordinator who is available for in-app messaging, weekly check-ins, supportive conversations and personalized recommendations.
3: Attend Weekly Calls & Accomplish Daily Goals
Patients are provided with a Prescribe FIT Smart Scale which pairs with a smart device to send daily bodyweight readings to your physician. Patients are also assigned exercise, nutritional, and lifestyle goals plus educational pathways to help them learn how to live a healthy lifestyle. Patients can track progress on the virtual dashboard in the mobile app.
Orthopaedic Associates of Zanesville seeks to ensure the long-term health of our patients with this effective at-home program. Helping our patients live a healthy, pain-free lifestyle is what drives us to do what we do.
