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.

    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 …

    Founder Letter: ICD-10 Delayed Until 2015

    I originally planned to start this founder letter with “T-minus six months and counting until ICD-10.” However, yesterday, the Senate passed HR 4302, which delays a 24% fee schedule cut, extends the therapy cap exceptions process (i.e., use of the KX modifier), and pushes the ICD-10 implementation date to next year—as in October 1, 2015. For some of you, this might elicit a sigh of relief, but those who were ready are sighing in disbelief. President Obama …

    Founder Letter: Stability in the Midst of Chaos: Celebrating 10 Years

    As a general rule, I do my best to steer clear of politics in these letters. Aside from pushing for pro-PT legislation, I keep my views on party lines to myself. After all, beyond the individuals elected, the goal of our democratic government has always been to work together to find solutions that serve the greater good. Now, we’ve had government shutdowns before—sadly enough. But the three-day shutdown that happened at the end of January was particularly …

    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 …
