Imagine sending a referring surgeon real-time documentation showing them their patient’s improved mobility, muscle strength and reduced pain. Shoulder surgery patients results are proven and now you can share these results as well as you detailed care plan right from your EMR instantly.

Most patients who receive physical therapy after surgery experience only half as much pain within a few months, and most are free from pain after a year or two, according to a thesis presented at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden. …Physical therapy should be regarded as the first course of treatment, with surgery reserved for those who do not receive adequate improvement from therapy alone. The two most common procedures are arthroscopic subacromial decompression and rotator cuff repair.

    Using WebPT to Share Notes with Other Providers

    In keeping with this month’s theme of “Tips and Tricks,” I wanted to share one of my favorite aspects of WebPT: the ability to share a patient’s initial evaluation, treatment notes, and progress notes with other members of the patient’s healthcare team. Many of my patients are fairly complex and have a team of healthcare providers. That team may include another physical therapist, a surgeon, a pain management provider, a massage therapist, or a personal trainer. It …

    St. Mary's UMN Undergrad Completes Thesis on WebPT Influencing HEP Compliance

    We all know prescribed home exercise is a key part of patient recovery and rehab, so it can be pretty frustrating when patients do not correctly follow or comply with the prescribed program. Non-compliance with home exercise programs (HEP) can really hamper the overall goals you set for your patients. Limited progress equals additional clinic visits and ultimately higher healthcare costs. Needless to say, HEP compliance is a big deal. Lauren Baier, a biology major at St. Mary’s …

    Physical Therapy May Be a Part of the Get Fit Plan

    More and more of our “members” are seeing patients who are looking for fitness plans they can use to improve their health without chronic pain. These types of patients are often not covered by insurance and may not even come with a referral from a physician. Their care plan may require long-term fitness strategies and an occasional visit over long periods of time in order to adjust as their fitness needs change. Electronic documentation is the perfect …

    Put Down The Clipboard! Introducing the (New and Improved) WebPT Digital Flowsheet

    Documenting patient exercises has always been somewhat of a mess. We all know the scene; PTs and PTAs following patients around with a clipboard in hand. If your clinic uses EMR, you are probably used to taking that paper flowsheet, trying to decipher it, and inputting the data into the system. We know this process can be frustrating and cumbersome, so we set out to make paper flowsheets a thing of the past. One of the biggest …

    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 …

    Why Documentation Sucks

    Today's blog post comes from WebPT co-founder Heidi Jannenga, PT, MPT, ATC/L. By now many of you have seen, heard about, or participated in our latest campaign—”Documentation Sucks”. While much of the feedback we’ve received has been incredibly positive (in fact, we received more than 500 Ditch the Pen & Paper t-shirt orders in the first month alone). But with the many cheers, we’ve also heard a few jeers. It seems the word “sucks” has struck an …
