In 2006, while Brad and I were driving home from Prescott, Arizona, we mapped out the idea for WebPT on the back of an envelope. Back then, we simply were trying to develop a documentation solution for my practice. I never imagined that in eight years, the ambitious startup we launched and ran out of the back of a coffee shop would grow into something so significant. Today, more than 30,000 therapy professionals and 6,000 therapy practices trust WebPT every day for their documentation and practice management needs. Some of you have been with us since our launch at CSM 2008 in Nashville; some of you only recently ditched the pen and paper to go digital with us. But you’re all trailblazers—early adopters helping to lead the physical therapy industry into the digital age.

Elevating the profession has been our company’s focus—and my personal passion—since the start. From day one, we’ve been dedicated to the industry we have the honor of serving—and dedicated to helping therapists achieve greatness in practice. Your success is our success, and through that success, we elevate our profession together. That’s why today is special not only for WebPT, but also for you—our Members and private practice therapists across the country.

Today we announced our acceptance of a significant investment from Battery Ventures, a nationally-recognized firm known for backing some very successful technology companies (like Groupon, Marketo, Brightree, and ExactTarget). We are proud to partner with such an experienced investor, and I am especially proud to see a firm—one with a proven track record for supporting high-growth technology companies—invest in rehab therapy. WebPT is forever committed to physical, occupational, and speech therapists. With this investment, we’ll continue our mission to innovate and to provide you with the most cutting-edge technology on the market and the most dedicated team to help you succeed.

As always, I will continue to drive our product strategy and oversee the WebPT brand vision as the company’s chief operating officer. My husband, Brad, will remain WebPT’s president and chief technology officer, and Paul Winandy will continue to lead our team as chief executive officer. I have the utmost confidence in our leadership team, our staff, and our new partner, Battery Ventures. Our deep industry experience, combined with the added firepower Battery provides, will enable us to keep innovating, pushing the envelope, and elevating our great profession.

This investment proves what WebPT and our Members already know: rehab therapists are uniquely poised to make a dramatic impact on health care in the coming years. With this financial backing, we can solidify our place as rehab therapy’s true tech partner. We built this business on a foundation of listening to our user community—our Members—and we will continue to innovate and deliver the solutions you need. We will continue to empower therapists to change the industry for the better, never wavering in our dedication to this amazing profession. This is our legacy and we intend to make it a damn good one—with you, our Members, by our side. Buckle up because we’ve got plenty more trail to blaze.

    Founder Letter: 97002 and 97004 (Re-Evaluation) Myths Debunked

    Let’s start off with a hypothetical example: You’re working with a Medicare patient. It’s the tenth visit and you need to conduct a routine reassessment, so you complete a progress note. Your boss then asks why you didn’t bill for a re-evaluation. Should you have? This scenario happens daily. If it’s not your boss questioning you, then maybe it’s yourself asking, “Should I bill a re-evaluation code for the time spent completing my reassessment of this patient?” …
