I’m a planner, lover of lists, and overall high-functioning control freak. That’s why this week’s product updates warm my soul. If you’re anything like me (come on, admit it), you also will appreciate the new features we’ve added to make it easier for you to manage your clinic, your way.

Conquer Compliance with the New PQRS Status Report

PQRS can be confusing for even the savviest of compliance experts. While we offer PQRS services to alleviate most of the headaches associated with PQRS, we know there’s always room for improvement. That’s why, based on Member feedback, we redesigned the PQRS Status Report.

The new and improved PQRS Status Report takes the guesswork out of monitoring PQRS compliance. Featuring a simplified design and better data organization—including the ability to filter by measure, therapist, and patient—this report makes it easier than ever to ensure your clinic meets PQRS requirements. Specifically, you’ll be able to:

  • See who’s slacking. Quickly view the compliance status, progress-to-goal, and patient list for every measure and every therapist within your clinic.
  • Avoid end-of-year surprises. Easily identify compliance gaps long before the reporting year ends. (Arrivederci, last-minute performance rate problems.)

We recommend reviewing this report monthly to ensure you’re always on top of PQRS compliance.  Visit the Community for an in-depth look at this new report as well as reporting best practices.

Control the Patient Experience with OMTs

One of the biggest timesavers included in WebPT Outcomes is the ability to issue standard patient satisfaction questionnaires, such as “How satisfied are you with the level of care and service provided?”. And while many Members love the convenience of having patient satisfaction questions included in the digital OMTs, some Members expressed the desire to disable or remove those questions from their surveys. You see, some of these clinicians already solicit patient satisfaction surveys or feel uncomfortable asking those questions at the point of care.

Unfortunately, the option to disable patient satisfaction questions wasn’t possible at first. Now, though, Members can elect to remove patient satisfaction questions from the digital OMT forms. This company-wide setting allows for greater control over the patient experience. Keep in mind, however, that this setting is an all-or-nothing deal. If a company opts out of collecting patient satisfaction data, none of the clinics in that company will be able to access the patient satisfaction questions.


The product enhancements I’ve outlined above are part of WebPT’s ongoing effort to provide the rehab industry’s best software. To ensure we continue to do that, we’d love to hear from you. After all, Member feedback is what drives our innovation.

    Founder Letter: PQRS is Dead, But Your Data-Analysis Efforts Should Live On

    If there’s one thing I know about rehab therapists, it’s that we are all very busy people. If your to-do list is anything like mine, it’s growing faster than you can prune it—and has probably expanded onto multiple sheets of paper (or maybe even into multiple notebooks). And regardless of the value associated with each item on the docket, we tend to refer to these tasks as things we “have” to do—not things we “get” to do. …

    Fortune Favors Data: Lessons Learned About Outcomes at Ascend 2015

    Carl Sandberg’s 1914 poem “ Chicago ” spawned one of the city’s most popular nicknames: the City of Big Shoulders. The moniker proudly implies that Chicagoans are work horses—always carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. They’re the toilers, the builders, and the difference-makers. By that definition, rehab therapy is certainly the Profession of Big Shoulders. Thus, it makes sense that this year’s Ascend 2015 took place in the heart of Chicagoland. And as the …

    GPRO 2015: Is it Worth it?

    Last week, we covered the registry-and claims-based reporting methods for PQRS. In this post, I’ll discuss the complexities associated with reporting PQRS using the Group Practice Reporting Option (GPRO). In past years, GPRO seemed to be the most practical option for practices with more than two eligible professionals. This year, however, Medicare added more stipulations to the GPRO program—and in some cases, those add-ons might make the whole thing more trouble than it’s worth. The Basics of …

    What PQRS Could Look Like in 2014

    On July 19, 2013, the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) published the 2014 Medicare Physician Fee Schedule (MPFS) Notice of Proposed Rulemaking (NPRM) in the Federal Register. According to this summary , most of the policies were open for comment until September 6, 2013 and, pending final decisions (which hopefully will occur this month), will take effect on January 1, 2014. The 605-page document contains proposals for policy changes on everything from reimbursements to the …

    Is PT Valuable? Why Outcomes Data is the Proof We Need

    In this day and age, it seems like everybody wants more for less—and that’s certainly true in the healthcare realm. With nationwide reform efforts pushing providers to deliver higher-quality care at a lower cost, value—and the ability to prove it—is absolutely critical. Most rehab therapists will tell you the services they provide are more valuable than anyone knows. And that’s precisely the problem. No one knows the value of physical and occupational therapy. But outcomes tracking can …
