March 2013, Gettysburg, Pa- Ability Prosthetics & Orthotics, Inc. is pleased to announce the launch of its magazine, Lifenhanced by Ability. The premier issue will be released in March. The magazine will be published quarterly and provided to patients, referrals and third party payers in Ability’s five state coverage area. The following is an excerpt from Mr. Brandt’s welcome message….
Welcome to the inaugural issue of LifeEnhanced by Ability. As the Founder of Ability Prosthetics & Orthotics, Inc., it is my hope to create a quarterly publication that promotes awareness and education for patients, referral sources and third party payers. It is only through education and awareness that we can all work together to provide the best, most efficient outcome for our patients.
Speaking of outcomes, one theme that will dominate this and future issues is Ability’s focus on using outcome measures to better assess how each patient’s device fits and functions- both short and long-term. Ability is an industry leader in using this approach to patient care, which serves to increase patient success and satisfaction while minimizing costs, materials and time.
In addition to touching upon our processes and procedures, topics will also include patient profiles featuring a variety of devices, introductions to Ability’s practitioners and staff, and updates from the industry regarding policy, research and technology.
I hope you enjoy this issue and look forward to the next one! As always, please feel free to contact me with comments, questions, topics or ideas – this is a publication for you – serving to enhance your O&P experience.
-Jeffrey Brandt, CPO, COO, Founder & President
