Your Patient’s ViaFit Experience
When a physician, hospital or clinic has a new amputee patient we ask they reach out to their local ViaFit Account Manager. Your Account Manager will ensure we send one of our ViaFit Peer Mentors to meet the patient. Too often amputee patients are caught in an “assembly line of care”. A patient may have to visit several doctors during the process and can often feel lost in the system. We have stepped outside of how patient care is traditionally approached in our industry to serve as a partner for our patients through their lifetime. This approach begins with our ViaFit Peer Mentor Program. Even if the patient never receives prosthesis from us, we feel it is invaluable for them to meet with one of our Peer Mentors and become a member of the Amputee Coalition. Our Peer Mentors are also amputees and can offer your patient with a wealth of knowledge and the life experience and advice that only another amputee can share. After meeting with one of our Peer Mentors, one of our highly qualified Prosthetists will meet with your patient. For this stage of the process we require a “consult” order in the chart, a prescription from their treating physician or an order for a shrinker or flo-tech device. One of these orders along with a face-sheet can simply be faxed to our office. Most physicians write for “consult, treat, and fit for prosthesis”, a generic prescription for this stage.
Life Long Patient Care
Once we receive a patient’s information they become a ViaFit patient for life. Our ViaFit Patient Care Team acts as a liaison between our patient and all of their medical providers. Our team will remain in contact with our patients for the rest of their lives! Our Patient Care Team members take care of all the details for you and your patient, including obtaining signed prescriptions. They also contact our patients for ongoing clinical care periodically for the rest of their life to ensure our patients are always receiving the care they deserve.
CAD | CAM Technology
Through our CAD|CAM technology, we’re able to provide accurate molds for both preparatory and definitive sockets. Our CAD | CAM technology also cuts down on fabrication time, allowing our patients to receive limbs more quickly. As we scan, the CAD|CAM scanner sends a message to a computer that will calculate the patient’s measurements. After the measurements are calculated they are sent via the computer to our carving machine, located in our state-of-the-art Fabrication Lab. This process can take around 15 minutes, creating a mold identical to the patient’s residual limb.
Each ViaFit clinic has a mobile CAD | CAM scanner, so our Prosthetists can take it with them wherever they go. We offer the latest science available in prosthesis including the two industry leaders of computerized microprocessor knees: the C-Leg (by Ottobock) and the Rheo Knee (by Ossur). We also carry specialized feet, like the Proprio foot and I-walk as well as other high-tech prosthetic components.
Care You Can Trust
Our ViaFit team believes that prosthesis is not a “product” but instead, it is an integral part of each patient’s life. Living as an amputee and wearing prosthesis is a lifetime commitment, and we are committed to ensure our patients receive the best care. Our ViaFit Peer Mentors, ViaFit Patient Liaisons and ViaFit Prosthetists combined with our cutting edge technology offer every patient a superior experience you can trust.
