Today's blog post was contributed by Alex Zarazua, a stellar member of the WebPT Support team. Thanks Alex!

Earlier this morning thousands of WebPT members were greeted with a number enhanced features and a new color scheme as we improved our system this weekend. Approximately 25 members suggested improvements to our application which we developed and implemented in our latest release!  

We are so thankful for our contributing members that help improve the system via our Ideas Portal. Today we’re excited to introduce a new and improved Ideas Portal to increase the searchability of current ideas and encourage engagement across the entire WebPT community. Members now have the ability to participate by reviewing, commenting and voting on ideas as well as see where their ideas are in the development process.

Our Insurance Authorization manager was improved with new visit count features that will let your staff keep track of visits and authorizations more easily. Members now have the ability to see the number of patient visits per policy across all cases and reset those visit counts as necessary.

Other updates include billing and documentation enhancements, added functionality to the Home Exercise Program, an addition to the Neuro Vascular section and overall system enhancements. Members have access to a detailed list of improvements under the News & Updates section of the Dashboard.

If you have more ideas on how we can make WebPT better we want to hear them. Email them to support@webpt.com or visit our Ideas Portal!

    Payment Reform and PT: The Private Practice’s Guide to Pay-for-Performance

    The US healthcare system is in the midst of a massive overhaul. As part of that shift, the volume-based payment systems of yore (a.k.a. fee-for-service) are quickly going the way of the floppy disk to make room for a new payment paradigm: pay-for-performance. Soon, you’ll receive reimbursements based on the quality of care—not the quantity of services—you provide. Is your rehab therapy practice equipped to survive—and thrive—in a value-based payment world? Enter your email address below to …
