Our Purpose

Our Purpose

We believe in empowering the rehab therapy community to achieve greatness in practice. That’s why we created an innovative, end-to-end business solution designed specifically for rehab therapy professionals.

WebPT gives every rehab therapy business—from single-therapist clinics to multi-location enterprises—the tools necessary to maximize performance, revenue, and patient outcomes.

In the heart of AZ

Our Story

In 2006, Heidi Jannenga, a leading sports physical therapist and multi-clinic director, was looking for ways to improve her practice’s bottom line. After identifying dictation and paper documentation management as two of her business’s biggest costs, she started looking for a less expensive solution to documentation and enlisted the help of Brad Jannenga, a seasoned technologist with three successful SaaS platforms under his belt.

Runnin’ Down a Dream

Heidi knew she needed something that would not only fit her workflow as a PT, but also would be affordable, intuitive, and easy to implement in her clinic. The more Brad and Heidi shopped around, though, the more discouraged they became. That was when they decided to partner and develop her business’s ideal software solution. Brad started shadowing Heidi to gain a deep understanding of her workflow and documentation needs. In the evenings, the two would regroup and map out how the software should work. Then, Brad would get to coding and Heidi would get to testing. And piece by piece, WebPT—a web-based physical therapy EMR—was born.

Takin’ Care of Business

Heidi and Brad officially launched the software in 2008. Within three years, their cloud-based idea grew into the leading physical therapy software on the market. Today, as president and co-founder, Heidi leads WebPT’s product vision, branding efforts, and company culture, while advocating for the physical therapy profession on a national scale. Since its launch, WebPT has evolved from a startup into one of the nation's fastest-growing privately held companies, providing more than 280 local jobs in Phoenix, while helping nearly 70,000 Members run better, more efficient practices and improve care delivery.

In addition to offering defensible, compliant, and intuitive documentation, WebPT provides physical therapists, occupational therapists, and speech-language pathologists with intelligent business and compliance reporting, interactive and organized scheduling, integrated billing, built-in patient outcomes tracking, and one-stop shopping (and saving) with the WebPT Marketplace. And it's all web-based, which means therapists can securely document, schedule, and bill anywhere, anytime.

Don’t Stop Thinking About Tomorrow

Never satisfied with the status quo, we here at WebPT continue to innovate, performing weekly software updates to ensure our Members always get the very latest in technological advancements and compliance solutions. And our Members have a seat at the WebPT development table, so to speak. Within the application, they can submit suggestions and vote on the priority of system updates as well as new features and products. In fact, some of the most meaningful application improvements have come directly from Member suggestions.

Headquartered in the historic Warehouse District in downtown Phoenix, WebPT has been listed on Inc. Magazine's list of the nation's 5000 fastest-growing companies four consecutive years in row and ranked on the Deloitte Technology Fast 500 list in 2016. We're also one of the fastest-growing software companies in Arizona and one of the fastest-growing EMRs in the country. Holding true to our startup roots, we value lean business principles, a casual work environment, and collaborative, team-oriented workspaces. Office culture reflects our mission to innovate: we work smart, play hard, and always put our Members first—and that's demonstrated by our 99.9% uptime rate and 99.3% customer retention rate. We also love dogs, food trucks, flip-flops, and Nerf guns.
