“Cel-e-brate good times, c’mon! Duh nuh nuh nuh nuh, duh nuh nuh. Yahoo!” I can hear the melody right now. Can’t you? If you can’t, that also means you probably can’t hear me singing it loudly—which is a good thing (sorry, friendly coworkers). You might be wondering what Kool & the Gang has to do with WebPT. To put it simply, there’s a party going on right here. By right here, I mean at WebPT. That’s because we’re celebrating two years of helping our Members save time and money through the WebPT Marketplace. If you aren’t familiar with the Marketplace, here’s some history:

One of our WebPT Members, Brian Kunich, was doing it all: running his own clinic, treating patients, and—on top of everything else—managing his clinic’s supply orders. Pretty soon, he found himself buried in daily tasks, and he knew there had to be a more efficient way to get everything done. It was this predicament that led him to map out his idea for an e-commerce site where PTs could order supplies for their clinics—and save time and money to boot. After a lot of time and consideration, in 2011, he brought the idea to one of our Member conferences, where he met with one of his PT friends—and WebPT’s founder and COO—Heidi Jannenga. Heidi brought the idea back to WebPT’s executive team, and they loved it. Furthermore, both WebPT and Brian shared the same goals: to use the exponentially growing power of WebPT’s Member base to help empower the rehab community as a whole—through technology, education, and improved efficiencies. We were able to join forces to create something amazing, which we now call the WebPT Marketplace.

Because of the size of WebPT’s Membership, we’re able to offer thousands of products in the Marketplace at up to a 30% discount. In addition to buying clinic supplies, you can purchase CEUs and patient-focused products to resell in your clinic—thus promoting better home exercise program compliance and outcomes. And what’s more? You don’t even have to navigate away from your EMR to place your totally secure order. (Hello, time saved!) Speaking of saving time, reordering in the Marketplace is a snap. Simply save your lists and reorder at lighting-fast speeds.

As the song goes, “We’re going to celebrate and party with you.” Actually, the song says “we gonna,” but I’m a bit of a grammar nerd, so I adjusted accordingly. Anyhow, to celebrate the Marketplace’s second birthday, we’re offering our biggest discount yet—and we want you to join the party.
