    Inspired By Innovation

    Today's blog post comes from   Jack Sparacio , MSPT, COMT, CFMT, and owner of   PT Marketing Consultants   and   Sparacio Physical Therapy . How many times have you heard the phrase “ordinary people doing extraordinary things”? Common phrase, sure, but I like to think of it as the other way around: “extraordinary people doing ordinary things,” because I like to give more credit to the person than the idea. My point, though, is this: …

    Be Inspired to Make Your Own Choices

    Today's post comes from Tom Ambury, PT and compliance officer at  PT Compliance Group . Once upon a time, I was working in the home health field.

    Why I Became a PT

    Today’s post comes from WebPT Member Mike Taylor, PT, MBA, OCS, from OrthoSport Physical Therapy . Thanks, Mike!

    How to Pitch an EMR to Your Clinic Director (or Your Staff)

    Today's blog post comes from WebPT  Copywriters  Char Bohnett and Erica Cohen. You’ve done your research; scoured the tradeshows; evaluated your options, and frankly, the writing’s on the wall: Digitally documenting with a rehab therapy-specific EMR just makes more sense than charting on paper—for your practice, for your patients, and for your sanity. But before you go ditching the pen and paper, you need buy-in, maybe from the clinic decision maker or maybe from your staff. Here’s …

    What Can Your EMR Do for You Beyond Documentation?

    Today’s blog post comes from copywriters Charlotte Bohnett and Erica Cohen. Earlier this week we tackled four reasons your practice should ditch paper documentation and go digital with Electronic Medical Records (EMR). At this point, you've either already made the switch or you’ve probably at least made up your mind to go digital soon.
