    While you’re no doubt laser-focused on providing quality care to your patients, you may occasionally overlook some administrative tasks. You’re busy; it happens. I’m not trying to add one more thing to the list of worries that keep you tossing and turning at night; but, I do want to make you aware of a benefit you may be entitled to—but missing out on.

    Top Takeaways From #AscendEvent 2018

    This was my first year attending WebPT’s Ascend conference , and I wasn’t sure what to expect. A business conference? For PTs? It was exciting and intriguing. I also received carte blanche to write an entire blog post around my own experiences at the conference, which is an absolute dream come true! And, as a non-traditional, non-practicing physical therapist, I knew my experience would be very different from others’. So, I packed my bags and braced myself …

    Bad Debt Blues: How to Keep Your Clinic Out of the Red

    Many practices are experiencing higher levels of bad debt than they have in the past—partially due to the proliferation of high-deductible health plans that place greater financial responsibility on patients. And when patients don't pay the full amount they are responsible for—and practices fail to collect past-due amounts—the go-to solution often is writing off those totals as bad debt. But financially, that is not an ideal course of action. So, let's talk about how to optimize your …
