As an in-home therapy clinic, Jim Prussack of In-Home Therapy Services (aptly named) had some unique issues he faced with documentation.  They were 100% paper-based, using hand-written notes during sessions, with little to no compliance standards in place.  In an effort to gain efficiencies and save money, while still allowing his staff to remain mobile, Jim turned to WebPT.  The first thing he noticed was how easy it was to get up and running.  He was using the system in a few hours, and within a short time, he was able to import all of his past records. 

“We were able to get all of our existing records transferred very quickly and without the pain you’d typically expect with this kind of file transfer. All of our PTs and office staff were up and running smoothly on the system, as if it was second nature, in a matter of weeks.”

Jim's Challenges:

  1. Paper-based
  2. Hand-written notes with no standards
  3. Mobile staff, never in the office

Solution and Benefits of WebPT

  1. Imported existing records easily
  2. More productive PT practice
  3. Documentation was cohesive and stored in a secure place.

 

Since using WebPT, Jim and his team now feel all of the documentation is more compliant and organized. Jim also noted that his office manager has been able to take control of all of the practices’ online information, so each PT doesn’t have to be responsible for managing their own documents. This alone has made everyone’s practice much easier and kept information much more consistent and standardized.

“Having a web-based EMR system that is built just for PTs has been amazing. The capabilities of this system have made everything streamlined and seamless for our entire team. From recording to faxing notes automatically, to processing, the time and energy saved has been tremendous.”

    How WebPT Came to Be

    As a Physical Therapist in outpatient practice for almost 15 years, I found myself often frustrated with the lack of ingenuity and progress within our profession when it comes to documentation. When I graduated from PT school, like most, I was writing out my SOAP notes by hand, marking my billing sheets, and using dictation for evaluations and re-evaluations. A decade later nothing had changed. I researched the documentation software currently available and found them all to …

    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 …

    Automating Your PT Practice Documentation is the Green thing to Do

    There are many costs that go into running a physical therapy (PT) practice that are above and beyond just the equipment and expertise needed to care for your patients. The costs of running an office, overhead and other supplies must be put into the budget. One of the biggest costs is the overhead of managing your PT practice documentation. That is a cost that is easy to lose control over, especially if you have mountains of paperwork …

    The Case for Specialized Software: Why Your Hospital EHR Hinders Patient Care and Increases Risk

    If you Google “hospital EHR,” you’ll initially receive an overwhelming number of search results for the EHR systems themselves—essentially, advertisements and promotions for their software. Wade through those results, though, and you’ll uncover a wealth of articles in which hospital practitioners complain about their technology and how it negatively impacts patient care. Search “private practice EHR,” and you’ll encounter the same thing. And these complaints are, by and large, voiced by physicians—the people for whom these systems …
