Abstract

A descriptive correlation quantitative study was conducted in order to yield results in determining the comparison of patient's perception on face-to-face rehabilitation and telerehabilitation technology as to efficiency and accessibility in terms of quality of health care delivery. This study was conducted in coordination with the residents and local government unit of Barangay Narvaez, Gen. Emilio Aguinaldo and Barangay Kabulusan, Magallanes, PT interns and members of the academe of DLSHSI College of Rehabilitation Sciences. Non-probability sampling method was utilized based on the inclusion and exclusion criteria. In determining the comparison of patients’ perception, the researchers conducted three (3) telerehabilitation sessions each on five (5) patients who already experienced face-to-face rehabilitation. After the third session, the participants answered the research tool consisting of patient’s demographic data and eight (8) questions with 5-point Likert scale to gather the patients’ view about the efficiency and accessibility of rehabilitation. Data was analyzed through the use of frequency percentage distribution, mean and t-test. In conclusion, the patients perceived that both face-to-face rehabilitation and telerehabilitation technology are of excellent quality specifically during assessment. Telerehabilitation is a viable alternative for face-to-face rehabilitation.
