Today's blog post comes from WebPT copywriters Charlotte Bohnett and Erica Cohen. 

Documentation sucks. We get it. That’s why we created documentationsucks.com, a place for you to show us how you feel about pen and paper. We know it ain’t warm and fuzzy with rainbows and sunshine. It’s cumbersome and bang-your-head-against-a-wall frustrating. That’s why we want you to get real with your documentation. If you haven’t already, up your clinic’s game and get WebPT.

And while you’re at it, show us that you’re ready to ditch the pen and paper (or celebrate the fact that you’ve already ditched it) with our awesome contest. We’re talking free schwag (a super soft “ditch the pen and paper” tee), a fun interactive website (high-fives to fellow rehab therapists), creative pictures (or quirky, silly, cute), and cool prizes (hello, MacBook Air).

Here are the Documentation Sucks contest details:

1.) Get Your Shirt 

Visit documentationsucks.com to request your free Ditch the Pen & Paper t-shirt.

2.) Show Off Your Shirt 

Take a photo (or several) of you (or your friends) creatively sportin’ the shirt (props for pics that illustrate why paper documentation sucks)! Then upload the photo(s) to documentationsucks.com.

3.) Vote and Promote

Visit documentationsucks.com to vote for uploaded photos (yours included) and promote ‘em on Facebook, Pinterest, and Twitter (#docsucks).

4.) Win

We’re talking not one but two winners. You pick one (most votes), and we pick the other (our fave). The prize? Each winner scores an Apple MacBook Air.

Ready for some mighty fine print? Head to documentationsucks.com for the full contest rules and regulations. Contest ends November 15th, and starts right now!

You’re still reading? What are you waiting for? Ready. Set. Documentation Sucks!

    Why Documentation Sucks

    Today's blog post comes from WebPT co-founder Heidi Jannenga, PT, MPT, ATC/L. By now many of you have seen, heard about, or participated in our latest campaign—”Documentation Sucks”. While much of the feedback we’ve received has been incredibly positive (in fact, we received more than 500 Ditch the Pen & Paper t-shirt orders in the first month alone). But with the many cheers, we’ve also heard a few jeers. It seems the word “sucks” has struck an …

    Lakeside & Polson Physical Therapy Saves Time, Stays Compliant with WebPT

    Since 1996, Lakeside & Polson Physical Therapy has been a PT mainstay in Northwest Montana’s beautiful Flathead Valley. But when Samantha Modderman, PT, and her business partners took over ownership of the two-clinic practice last year, they couldn’t believe how outdated its existing billing and documentation methods were. Both clinics had been using paper documentation and an outdated, DOS-based billing system. “In looking at some of the existing paper charts on patients, I was amazed at the …
