Culver City, CA, April 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- eWellness Healthcare Corporation – (OTCQB: EWLL) – a provider of the state of the art PHZIO platform for the physical therapy (PT) and telehealth markets, announced the advancement of its sales and marketing efforts to various state employee groups and agencies beginning with the state of Florida.

According to Florida states figures, there are approximately 4.36 million Florida state employees. Based upon the national average, 8% of these employees are receiving physical or occupational therapy (OT) treatments on an annual basis or approximately 348,000 employees. The national average number of PT/OT treatments per incident is approximately 10 sessions with an average treatment costs of $100.00 per session. This is equal to approximately $348 million per year. We believe that if these state employees were to be treated through our PHZIO platform, EWLL could cut this cost in half, saving the state approximately $174 million per year. We also anticipate the utilization of our PHZIO platform would add at least 150 new high paying telehealth jobs to the state of Florida. We also anticipate that the utilization of our PHZIO treatment platform should reduce workforce medical visit absenteeism.

“We are very excited to introduce our PHZIO treatment platform that could offer up to a 50% savings ($174 million annually) on PT/OT costs to the state of Florida. We anticipate participating in existing PT services Requests for Proposals (RFP’s), along with a direct dialog with state officials for the provisioning of customized PT/OT and corporate wellness service plans,” said Darwin Fogt, CEO of EWLL.
