    How to Quickly Move on When Separating from Your EMR

    Breaking up with your partner in crime—er, EMR—around the holidays can instill in you feelings of loneliness, anger, and doubt as you look ahead to the new year. But like any broken relationship, there’s no use in justifying to yourself—and others—why things might turn around for the better. After all, you know your EMR’s general lack of support—she blamed you for workflow inefficiencies—is something that can’t be fixed overnight. With the new year fast approaching, sometimes change …

    WebPT Staff Spotlight on Kylie McKee

    William Shakespeare once wrote that something is rotten in Denmark. Well, no disrespect to the Bard, but Kylie McKee—WebPT EMR Support Team Captain and blossoming creative writer—begs to differ. In fact, Kylie was so fascinated by Danish culture when she visited Copenhagen this past summer that she has started learning the language in her free time. “I would move there in a heartbeat,” she said. “I was only there for a couple of days, but there was …

    We’ve all seen those cheesy Instagram posts with inspirational messages—like “Seize the day” or “Follow your heart” or “Live with passion”—scrawled across picturesque photos of sandy beaches, golden sunrises, and snow-capped mountain peaks. Maybe we’ve even tapped that little heart icon to publicly declare our support of such statements. But rarely do we live by them—at least not consistently. Emily Ely, on the other hand, has always used her heart as her compass—and it hasn’t failed her …

    Triumph in the Triple-Aim Game: The Healthcare Executive’s Guide to Readmission Reduction, Patient Safety Promotion, and ACO Success

    The Affordable Care Act (ACA) and other reform efforts have brought forth a renewed emphasis on care coordination at all points along the care continuum—including the period after hospital discharge. As part of this push, new financial incentives and penalties have put healthcare executives at the center of a high-pressure game of tug-of-war in which they must simultaneously improve care quality and reduce costs.

    WebPT Product Updates for Expanded Customization

Luckily, WebPT offers a number of customization features, and we’re adding more by the month. September’s product updates include expanded customization options for therapists, billers, and managers. Hide the billing codes you don’t need. WebPT users can …

    Most folks in the rehab therapy tech world—and around the WebPT office—know Joe Dundas as the president and co-founder of Therabill. What most people don’t know about Joe: He created a social media platform before the term “social media” was even a thing. “I wrote a webpage for my wife’s friends to log on and post pictures and notes for each other,” he said. “At the time, there was no such thing as a social network.” Joe’s …

    Get Over Opioids: Join the #ChoosePT Movement

    Patients are supposed to trust their doctors. So, when your doctor writes you a prescription, you usually don’t question it; you fill it, take it, and hope that it will make you better. But, what happens when a prescription turns into an addiction? Unfortunately, millions of Americans have learned the answer to that question the hard way.
