The month of September is going to be a busy month at WebPT Headquarters. In our quest to continue leading the PT EMR market, WebPT will be releasing some exciting new features and products that we are sure will enhance your experience and improve practice management. We wanted to quickly update everyone on these products and the education that will be accompanying the releases.

Before diving into these features, we wanted to address the changes that WebPT made to our technological architecture in the past month. As many of you know, WebPT has experienced exponential growth over the past few years. Part of WebPT's foundation of success has always been customer satisfaction and we understand we failed to meet that standard for many of our members. To ensure that WebPT functions above expectations regardless of growth, we recently invested over $200,000 into performance based technology upgrades. We also brought in a consultant who helped solidify the framework of such reputable companies as Groupon, 37Signals and Facebook.  Through this review, we actually discovered that the WebPT system is in fantastic shape with only a few areas in need of optimization.

Finally, we deployed a number of new tools for monitoring response time more closely so that we may respond quickly to any issues that may arise. With these changes, we have already seen a huge difference in system performance and have received positive feedback from our members regarding increased speed and functionality. Thanks again to our amazing community of therapists who have been so patient with us. 

Now onto more good, exciting stuff:

  • Home Exercise Program - This feature, to be released in September, will be  WebPT’s integrated Home Exercise Program. You will be able to choose from over 2,000 exercise videos, photos, and drawings to set up your patient’s Home Exercise Programs. This WebPT module will allow you to utilize email to send patients their program digitally or to print off the program and hand it to the patient. We will be providing user guide tutorials on how to use the new HEP module as soon as it is released next month.
  • Patient Intake  - The second feature, to be rolled out in September as well, will be the WebPT Intake Form. This feature will allow clinics to invite their patients to fill out basic patient information prior to coming in for their first visit. The information that is required of the patient is fully customizable by the clinic administration staff. Once the patient has filled out thier information, the staff will verify upon first visit and save the patient into the system. This new feature is expected to greatly cut down on man hours required of the front office staff and streamline the waiting room process. This intake form will also have the ability to be embedded on your webstie and branded with company logo and colors. Like the HEP, we will provide comprehensive user manuals on patient portal functionality.

 

These are just a few new features to expect from WebPT in the upcoming months. Other things to look forward to are the Pelvic Health Profile, enhanced Hand/Wrist Profile, and more Outcome Measurement Tools. We will continue to innovate and improve our product based on your feedback. Stay tuned for more updates from WebPT and information (Blogs, Webinars, Videos and Manuals) on these new features.

    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 …

    You’ve Got Outcomes—Now What?

    The launch of WebPT Outcomes is officially complete—which means every single WebPT clinic now has the ability to collect and track patient outcomes data directly within the EMR. And as you may have heard from our president and founder, Dr. Heidi Jannenga, that’s kind of a big deal . But, as Uncle Ben (Peter Parker’s uncle—not the rice guy) once said, “With great power comes great responsibility.” We’d be doing our Members—and the entire healthcare community at …

    WebPT + Outcomes: A PT Software Love Story

    Developing and launching WebPT Outcomes has been a labor of love—one that’s lasted about 15 months. At times, it felt more like the kind of love you’d have for a sibling—after he or she pushes you off the bunk bed and you split your lip open. You know, that kind of love. But, after lots of triumphs—and just as many fat lips—it’s been wonderful seeing the fruits of our labor come to life. Hello, WebPT Outcomes: the …

    Creating a simple pair of orthotics is a deceivingly arduous task—if you do it the traditional way, that is.

That’s why we’re excited to announce our partnership with SOLS, a pioneering company in the emerging industry of 3D-printed foot orthotics. Thanks to this partnership—and SOLS’s innovative …
