Haven’t made the switch from paper to an EMR (electronic medical record) yet? It’s natural to have hesitations and concerns. When you’re making a big decision, it’s sometimes helpful to hear from those who have gone before you.
Our friend, Katie Matlack, over at Software Advice recently conducted interviews with several companies currently using EMRs. As a result, she was able to compile a list of the top 8 pieces of advice from real users.
One of the three interviews was from current WebPT member, Ian Kornbluth of Neurac Institute. Ian owns two physical therapy clinics in New Jersey. Ian’s advice to those looking to move to EMR is to get software that is specific to your specialty. In Ian’s case, WebPT was actually created by licensed physical therapist Heidi Jannenga, PT, MPT, ATC/L and her husband, Brad Jannenga. In the article, Ian says the transition from paper “pretty easy and painless.”
As a clinic owner for over seven years, Ian constantly strives to provide “a model of physical therapy for the 21st century.” His innovative model includes both clinical work and practice managment. You can read more about Ian’s success in implementing an EMR for his PT clinics here.
