It’s official: WebPT is now 10,000 clinics strong.

It’s still kind of hard for us to believe that we have actually reached this milestone. We’ve been talking about it for weeks—months, actually—and during that time, our team has done a lot of reflecting. After all, it doesn’t seem like that long ago that we launched our little niche-software company out of the back room in a coffee shop. In our first month of business back in 2008, we sold five clinics—and we thought that was huge. Still, we dreamed big—we knew that the product we’d created had the potential to elevate the entire rehab therapy profession. And that makes days like today even more special, because it reminds us that all of our hard work has helped thousands of rehab therapists across the country:

  • provide better care to their patients;
  • run their businesses more efficiently;
  • remain compliant with ever-evolving healthcare regulations; and
  • track outcomes data to demonstrate their value to providers, patients, and payers alike.

In the years since WebPT launched, we’ve turned technology adoption in the rehab therapy world on its head. Back in 2008, 80% of clinics were still documenting on paper; now, that’s down to 16%. And that amount of change across an entire industry—in such a short amount of time—is incredible.

Our vision has always been to empower rehab therapists to achieve greatness in practice. In our early years, that meant helping therapists transition to a more efficient way of documenting so they could focus more of their time and energy on treating their patients. As more and more rehab professionals joined the WebPT community, we were able to broaden the scope of our mission statement by making our product suite even more robust.

Most of the features and functionality we’ve added to WebPT have come directly from Member feedback. WebPT literally wouldn’t be the system that it is today without all of our awesome Members in the PT, OT, and SLP communities.

So, thank you. Thank you for allowing us to serve you. Thank you for trusting us with such a crucial aspect of your practice. Thank you for providing feedback that has helped us shape our products and services. None of this would have been possible without you. Each and every one of you has helped raise the bar on the quality of care provided by rehab therapists across the country.

All of that being said, we’re nowhere near done innovating; our journey is nowhere near finished. And we can’t wait to see what we achieve next—together. Cheers to many more years of partnership—and many more celebration-worthy milestones.

    The Ultimate ICD-10 FAQ: Part Deux

    Just when we thought we’d gotten every ICD-10 question under the sun, we got, well, more questions. Like, a lot more. But, we take that as a good sign, because like a scrappy reporter trying to get to the bottom of a big story, our audience of blog readers and webinar attendees aren’t afraid to ask the tough questions—which means they’re serious about preparing themselves for the changes ahead. And we’re equally serious about providing them with …

    Dialogue after Discharge: The Importance of Post-Treatment Follow-Up

    Long-distance relationships are tough. Between juggling the hectic day-to-day and maintaining connections with all the other people in your life, it can be challenging to devote time to someone who resides outside your immediate geographic vicinity. Fortunately, as technology progresses, it’s helping bridge the gap between people and their faraway loved ones. Thanks to technological advances like text messaging, email, video chat, and social media, it’s easier than ever for those separated by land and sea to …

    High Note: Why Documentation is Good for Patient Satisfaction

    These days, it’s tough to get people to agree on, well, pretty much anything—but if there’s one thing we learned from our recent industry-wide survey , it’s that rehab therapists’ dislike of paperwork is fairly universal. In fact, the vast majority of survey-takers said that completing documentation was their number-one frustration at both the individual and company level. (Hooray for unity, am I right?) But, documentation isn’t going anywhere any time soon; so, many therapy providers have …

    It’s officially here: the last month before all HIPAA-eligible professionals must switch to the ICD-10 code set.

If you, like so many other rehab therapists, find yourself asking, “ICD-what?” then you’re in dire need of straightforward training—stat! Otherwise, you could leave your practice vulnerable to claim denials after October 1. Join us at 9:00 …

    Founder Letter: The Best Moments of 2018 for PTs, OTs, and SLPs

    Is it really December already? As business professionals, our days seem to get longer—and our years shorter—the further we get into our careers. (I still can’t believe WebPT is celebrating its 10-year anniversary this year.) And with the way time keeps on slippin’ , it’s easy to overlook the major milestones our profession has seen recently. This year, I’ve made a personal commitment to being more present in my day-to-day life—and I think that pursuit extends to …

    It’s officially summer—and that means ’tis the season for movement. Across the country, people young and old are lacing up their hiking boots, pumping up their bike tires, and packing their beach bags. But for some folks, musculoskeletal pain and dysfunction stand in the way of summer fun—which means this is also the season to celebrate the amazing work rehab therapists do to help get people back to the warm-weather activities they love.

    Let’s Talk Turkey: How Schedule-Stuffing Affects Patient Experience

    I’ve got a confession to make: I’m one of those people who bust out the pumpkin spice and fall decor on September 1. This might be a product of my Midwestern roots (apple-picking and corn mazes, anyone?), or it could be the result of living in Arizona, where autumn is more of a state of mind than an actual shift in season. So, it’s no wonder that Thanksgiving is one of the holidays I look forward to …
