C’mon, Listen to the Moneytalk
In 2006, Heidi Jannenga, a leading sports physical therapist and multi-site 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.
Runnin’ Down a Dream
Heidi knew she needed something that would not only fit her workflow as a PT, but also be affordable, intuitive, and easy to implement in her practice. The more she shopped around, though, the more discouraged she became. That was when she enlisted the help of Brad Jannenga, a seasoned technologist with three successful SaaS platforms under his belt, to develop her business’s ideal software solution. Brad shadowed Heidi in her practice 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
WebPT officially launched in 2008. Within three years, this cloud-based idea grew into the leading physical therapy software on the market. Today, as co-founder and and Chief Clinical Officer, Heidi advises on the company’s strategic direction and product innovation, while advocating for the rehab therapy profession on an international scale. Since its launch, WebPT has evolved from a lean startup into one of the nation’s fastest-growing privately held companies, employing more than 500 people, while helping more than 90,000 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 software and revenue cycle management services, built-in patient outcomes tracking, patient and physician marketing and home exercise software, and one-stop shopping (and saving) with the WebPT Marketplace. And it’s all web-based, which means therapists can securely manage their patients and practices anywhere, anytime.
