Join WebPT in the celebration of National Physical Therapy Month. As we look at the wonderful year we have had with our “members” we are excited for the future of PT software in the year to come. October is the perfect month to reflect on the growth of our industry and the strides we are all making to improve the health of patients while modernizing and streamlining today’s PT clinics.
Fuhgid about it! The New York and New Jersey Physical Therapy Associations collaborated for a Combined State conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey October 15 and 16. Although conveniently hosted at the Sheraton Convention Center, consensus among the attendees and other vendors was that attendance was lower than normal due to location. Those attending were therapists from many discipline areas, but mainly hospital based facilities. Despite lower attendance, the show must go on and it did.
Stay on top of the latest rehab therapy tips, trends, and best practices.
As a physical therapist in outpatient practice for almost 15 years, I found myself often frustrated with the lack of ingenuity and progress within our profession when it comes to documentation. When I graduated from PT school, like most, I was writing out my SOAP notes by hand, marking my billing sheets, and using dictation for evaluations and re-evaluations. A decade later nothing had changed. I researched the documentation software currently available and found them all to be extremely tedious, confusing and very costly.
Today, as I look around me, referring physicians, hospitals, even insurance companies are all going to some form of EMR (Electronic Medical Records). Why has the PT profession been left behind?
When speaking with colleagues of mine I found that lack of efficiency, limitations of software only being available on one computer, lack of customization ability, difficulty with data transfer, HIPAA compliance, and poor cost effectiveness were all common issues faced by our industry. As a clinic director, in this time of decreasing reimbursement, the sting of the transcription bill each month was enough for me to seek out another method.
I knew there had to be a better way.
