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.

    PQRS 2013: Outcome Measures

    Today's blog post comes from Senior Copywriters Erica Cohen and Char Bohnett. ‘Tis the season for PQRS. Why the hullabaloo? Because beginning in 2013, not complying with PQRS requirements will result in penalties, which CMS will assess as fines (starting at 1.5% of your fee schedule) in 2015. However, if you are compliant, you will earn a 0.5% incentive payment on your total allowed charges during the reporting period. With the impendency and necessity of PQRS reporting, …

    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 …

    Last Legs: The Compliance Vulnerabilities of Dead or Dying Software

    Rusty mechanical equipment. Creaky carnival rides. Wobbly chairs. People are naturally skeptical of things that are dilapidated, rundown, or slipshod—and with good reason. After all, that which is ramshackle usually isn’t reliable. Now, imagine it’s the physical therapy software you use everyday to run your rehab therapy practice that’s gone derelict. Take PTOS EMR, for example , because if you didn’t know, this therapy office software is going out of business, and it has ceased all updates …

    PQRS: The Case for Registry over Claims Based Reporting

    Here at WebPT HQ, we are gearing up for PQRS 2012. One of the pieces of PQRS that is most commonly misunderstood is the difference between claims and registry based services. Let's take a minute and clear this up. Claims and registry-based reporting both result in the same outcome for your clinic-- successful participation in PQRS. WebPT offers both options with claims-based being priced $99 per calendar year and registry-based at $299 for the calendar year. Many …

    4 MIPS and MACRA Must-Knows for PTs, OTs, and SLPs

    The holiday season is right around the corner, and while this time of year is always ripe for celebration—and rightfully so—the elimination of PQRS doesn’t mean you should bust out the confetti and noisemakers just yet. Wait, therapists no longer have to report PQRS data to Medicare—and that’s a bad thing? While that stand-alone decision may give you all the holiday feels , it should also give you pause: the truth is that because rehab therapists are …
