Using RehaCom in a Telepractice Environment
Pearson has recently added the option for “Home Training” to be provided alongside a RehaCom license subscription. With this method of delivery, home based therapy is “prescribed” to the patient by the clinician responsible for the patient’s cognitive rehabilitation. The therapy “prescription” is assigned from the clinician’s computer and is transferred over the internet to the patient’s computer at home. The patient can then launch and complete their training using special patient specific software loaded on their home computer. Please note that with the home training option, patient health PII and training results are encrypted and pass over the internet through the servers of Hasomed GmbH in Germany. Completed training results are then downloaded by the clinician to their computer for monitoring and therapeutic evaluation. You will need to determine whether this is acceptable for your organization’s data privacy policies.
Home training can be purchased in bundles of Home Training Hours in three package levels: Discover – 400 hours, Classic – 800 hours, or Power – 1600 hours. These training hours are used in combination with a standard “In Clinic” RehaCom site license or with a new “In Clinic Screening License”.

If you would like to use RehaCom using a telepractice approach, no special permission is required. It is advisable however, to consult your professional association guidelines regarding your approach to ensure that you are following their guidelines and that RehaCom training in this manner is appropriate for your patient. Pearson guidelines for using our products in telepractice or distance learning settings can be found on our telepractice web page.
