    So Long to Silos: Why Health Systems Must Embrace Interoperability Now

    If you Google “hospital EHR,” you’ll initially receive an overwhelming number of search results for the EHR systems themselves—essentially, advertisements and promotions for their software. Wade through those results, though, and you’ll uncover a wealth of articles in which hospital practitioners complain about their technology and how it negatively impacts patient care.

    Top 3 PT Billing Software Must-Haves

    When I go clothes shopping, I usually head straight to the clearance rack (I love a good bargain), but—as my husband loves to remind me—there’s a solid reason some of those items didn’t sell for full-price. Sure, sometimes the manufacturer made too many—or a particular style didn’t sell as well as planned. Most of the time, though, the discounted items are simply poor quality—and that’s why it’s crucial to be able to spot the difference between cheap …

    WebPT Billing: A Better Way to Bill

    You probably didn’t start your career as a PT, OT, or SLP because of your passion for medical billing. In fact, few—if any—therapists enjoy the nitty-gritty, technical details of compiling, submitting, and following up on claims. However, it is nice to get paid. And if you want to reap the financial rewards of your efforts—and thus continue to treat patients with the electricity on—you’ve got to submit clean claims that are backed up by strong, defensible documentation. …

We believe that people are the greatest asset in any organization—big or small—in any industry, including rehab therapy.
