This holiday season, we’re helping Santa scratch a few items off your wish list by delivering two highly-requested features aimed at giving you more time in your day. The WebPT Product team scoured our various listening posts—like our NPS surveys, our Ideas Portal, Therabill’s Suggestion Portal, and the feedback we’ve received through our Support department and interviews with our Members—to find a few popular requests. Now, thanks to the hard work of the WebPT elves, we’ve made our Members’ holiday seasons a bit brighter by enabling them to:

Customize the Scheduler to match the way their clinics operate.

With custom appointment types, you can now create any kind of appointment—from massage therapy to pool follow-up to moving your kid’s Elf on the Shelf every night (we always forget, too)—and assign color codes to quickly view what’s happening day-to-day, all directly from the Scheduler.

Spend less time sifting through closed cases.

With the ability to carry forward a returning patient’s past medical history or present medical condition, you no longer have to find and manually add this information for new or returning patient cases. If only setting up Christmas lights was this easy. 


These virtual stocking stuffers are scheduled for delivery on December 16, 2015. For the nitty-gritty details about Wednesday night’s product update, check out the Community.

Here’s to spending a little less time organizing your day and completing manual tasks in WebPT and much more time making memories with friends and family this holiday season!

    Knock Out Patient Dropout: 8 Ways to Increase Retention and Revenue

    In one corner, we have a highly skilled rehab therapy provider known for delivering amazing clinical outcomes through noninvasive, movement-based treatment. And in the other corner, we have a discouraged, disengaged patient whose quality of life has taken a major hit due to musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction.

    What Happens if Your Physical Therapy Software Goes Out of Business?

    You’ve most likely heard the news: PTOS is going out of business. That means that in a few short months, PTOS customers will be left without a physical therapy practice management and billing software solution, so they’ve got to find new systems—stat . After all, no one wants to lose all of their valuable patient and business data—nor do they want to wait until the last minute to find a replacement. Shopping for a PTOS alternative, partnering with …

    Common Questions from Our Physical Therapy Patient Retention Webinar

    Strive Labs co-founders Ryan Klepps and Scott Hebert recently joined WebPT president Heidi Jannenga for an insightful webinar about improving patient retention and reducing early patient drop-out. We know this is a super-relevant topic, especially because the cost of diminishing patient visits represents a $6 billion problem that not many people in the industry are talking about—at least not yet. As a result, we received a slew of great questions that we couldn’t get to live on …

    Let’s Talk Turkey: How Schedule-Stuffing Affects Patient Experience

    I’ve got a confession to make: I’m one of those people who bust out the pumpkin spice and fall decor on September 1. This might be a product of my Midwestern roots (apple-picking and corn mazes, anyone?), or it could be the result of living in Arizona, where autumn is more of a state of mind than an actual shift in season. So, it’s no wonder that Thanksgiving is one of the holidays I look forward to …

    Don't Flex Your PTs: 4 Ways to Make Use of Patient Cancellations

    Summer is approaching and, with family vacations competing for patients’ time, you might find yourself with quite a few cancellations and schedule gaps. Your first inclination may be to send your PTs home without pay. “Flexing,” as it is sometimes called, is becoming an increasingly common cost-cutting move. But, tempting as it may be to flex your PTs when things get slow, there’s a better way to use their non-billable time. Not only is being flexed insulting—your …

    The Initial Visit is Everything

    Patient engagement isn’t just about being friendly and nice. It’s about giving your patients the information they need for their treatment to be successful. That’s why it’s so important to prepare your patients for their first visits—in an effort to both set appropriate patient expectations and improve patient retention. Therapy Expectations If a patient has never been to PT before, expect lots of questions. Better yet, preempt those inquiries by sending patients information on how to prepare …

    The State of Rehab Therapy

    To see results from our most recent industry survey, check out the 2018 State of Rehab Therapy Report. Health care is not a static industry. It’s always changing, evolving, and progressing. No healthcare provider is immune to the effects of that change, but some—including physical, occupational, and speech therapists—have felt a greater impact than others. In an effort to assess the scope of that impact—and thus, better anticipate the future needs of the rehab therapy community—WebPT conducted …
