MEND Nutrition Inc., a clinical nutrition company located in BioLabs@NYULangone in New York City, announced today that it has partnered with BetterPT, a healthcare technology platform company renowned for providing end-to-end digital connectivity between physical therapists (PT), patients and physicians.
As the adoption of MEND’s clinical nutrition products continues to grow in orthopedics by leading hospitals, the company has begun working with national physical therapy practices. “We’re impressed with BetterPTs approach, their reach and the rapid growth of their Better Telehealth platform” says MEND founder and CEO Eziah Syed, “now more than ever we’re understanding the enormous potential of telehealth and the need to bring evidence based nutrition into medicine.”
Physical therapists are increasingly utilizing MEND as a clinical tool to support patient healing and outcomes.
