WebPT MarketplaceIt was 14 years ago when Brian Kunich launched his successful physical therapy career. After several years working in private practice, Brian discovered that while he was an excellent practitioner, as a clinic owner and manager he was at a serious disadvantage when it came to controlling clinic supply expenses. Because his priority—as it should be—was on treating his patients and growing his business, ordering clinical supplies became an after hours responsibility. Thus, time to shop around was at a premium.

Determined to help clinics simplify the buying process—and save money—Brian mapped out a plan for an eCommerce platform. And he knew the perfect company to work with in order to bring his plan to fruition—WebPT, the same company who developed and delivered the ultimate EMR and practice management solution for rehab therapists. In October, 2011, Brian (a WebPT Member) attended WebPT’s first user conference, Evolve. There, he spoke with friend, former colleague, and WebPT Co-Founder Heidi Jannenga.

Following a meeting with Heidi’s husband and WebPT President Brad Jannenga as well as CEO Paul Winandy, Brian knew he’d made the right choice. Not only did the WebPT executives love his idea, but they had similar ideas, too. Most importantly, the company had ideals that aligned with Brian’s: to use the exponentially growing power of WebPT’s member base to help empower the rehab community as a whole—through technology, education, and improved efficiencies. 

To bring his eCommerce idea to life, Brian joined the WebPT team in 2012 and committed 100% to the project. Today, the WebPT Marketplace, an eCommerce platform exclusively for WebPT Members, is live. Through their impressive Membership size, WebPT negotiated serious discounts on the clinical supplies therapy clinics need most. Now, Members have a one-stop shop to quickly and easily order everything they need, while saving money, from the same place where they complete their notes, schedule their patients, and submit their claims. In a nutshell, it’s the perfect solution—the best EMR and clinical shopping made easy and affordable—with the best products available from Meyer Distributing. 

How does Brian feel about the project now? Ecstatic. “It’s my dream come to life. But this is only the beginning of what the WebPT Marketplace will do for rehab therapists and the entire rehab community. I’m not done dreaming or building yet.”

    Heart and Sols: Revolutionizing Custom Orthotics

    When I first learned how to play the piano, my favorite song was “Heart and Soul.” It’s undeniably catchy, and it was a tried-and-true standard for piano novices like myself. Every day, in an effort to get the song just right, I practiced, practiced, and practiced some more. And what did I glean from this exercise in repetition? Well, it wasn’t stellar piano-playing skills. However, I did learn that it doesn’t take much noise to push me …

    CEU Shopping Guide

    In some social circles, shopping is considered a sport . In others, it’s merely an obligation or simply a pastime. But when it comes to shopping for continuing education units (CEUs), one point most social circles can agree on is that determining the right educational courses is far more important than say, the quest for the perfect pump . That’s because—in most states—earning the right CEUs is mandatory in order to maintain your license . And although …
