    The State of Rehab Therapy in 2018

    To say that the healthcare industry is complex would be an understatement. While the advent of technology has made care more precise, efficient, and collaborative than ever before, it has also put greater pressure on providers to deliver high-value care at scale. After all, big data makes it possible to not only develop the most effective, evidence-based best practices for individual diagnoses, but also form evidence-based strategies for managing the health of populations. In the spirit of …

    4 More Tips for Point-of-Care Documentation Domination

    In part one of my two-part series on point-of-care documentation, I talked about four ways technology—and a helping hand or two—can make documenting in front of your patients less of a struggle.

    The True Cost of a Bad Hire in Your PT, OT, or SLP Clinic

    If you’ve ever made a bad hire, you know what a harrowing experience it can be. Not only do you need to have at least one difficult conversation with that employee—or many, if you’re adhering to a documented coaching plan —but you also may have to repeat all the hiring and training steps you already completed to replace that bad hire with a good one. That’s expensive from both a resource and time perspective. But how much …

    Clean Break: How to Fire an Employee

    There’s no easy way to let someone go—it’s a difficult conversation that no one actually wants to have—but at some point or another, every manager, director, and practice owner will have to figure out what to say when firing an employee. It’s an inevitable part of running a business. No matter how exceptional your hiring practices are, not every candidate you bring on board is going to end up being a perfect fit. Unfortunately, there’s no script …

    Retention, Please: Why Patient Dropout is Killing Rehab Therapy Practices— and How to Stop It

    Patient health is the top priority for most rehab therapists—specifically, getting patients back to a level of health that allows them to do what they love. But, when patients say “sayonara” before they reach their therapy goals, they lose the opportunity to live their fullest lives. To make matters worse, the average rehab therapy practice will lose $150,000 annually due to patient dropout alone. Talk about a one-two punch to the gut. Here at WebPT, we believe …

    Which Outcome Measurement Tool Should I Use and When?

    Earlier this month, we announced the launch of WebPT Outcomes , the first fully-integrated outcomes tracking software specifically for PTs and OTs. One big way that WebPT Outcomes differs from other rehab therapy outcomes tracking software is the outcome measurement tools (OMTs) our product contains. As WebPT president Heidi Jannenga explained in this month’s founder letter , “historically, therapists haven’t had access to outcomes tracking tools that (1) align with the type of care they provide, including …

    Think Big, Think Differently: 6 Bits of Inspiration from Ascend 2017

    The overarching theme of Ascend 2017 —the fourth-annual installment of rehab therapy’s premier business summit—was, quite simply, “Think big.” But, based on what we learned from our esteemed group of speakers over the course of two inspiration-filled days in Washington, DC, a more accurate tagline for this year’s conference might have been, “Think differently.” After all, in a field as complex as health care, grand aspirations are not enough. To solve the problems plaguing this industry, we …
