Of course, the new year is all about resolutions, which makes it the perfect time for WebPT to introduce our two new Team Commitments : Do Más With Menos and Live Better. The first one is …

    Founder Letter: PQRS 2014

    Well, it’s November already, and that means two things: Thanksgiving and Physician Quality Reporting System (PQRS). Sure, PQRS doesn’t involve mouthwatering roasted turkey, savory stuffing, or creamy mashed potatoes, but it has become quite the November tradition for us here at WebPT. You see, this is the time of year that the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) typically confirms the details of next year’s reporting requirements, thus allowing us to update our PQRS solution (claims- …

    Founder Letter: Marketing to the Consumer

    When it comes to marketing your rehab therapy practice, the old school of thought is that to get more patients, you’ve got to get more referrals—and that means appealing only to physicians. Well, as the saying goes, “Out with the old, and in with the new!” As you’re probably—hopefully—aware, the rehab therapy industry is changing. Direct access to therapy services is rapidly shifting from being the exception to being the rule. This not only augments rehab therapists’ …

    Founder Letter: Embrace Innovation

    In a few weeks, I’ll have the pleasure of speaking at American Express’s Journey of Innovation, where I’ll elaborate on how innovation has monumentally changed my life, how it influenced the WebPT company culture, and how it will continue to play a role in my future as well as WebPT’s. I’ve spoken on these topics before, and I’m sure I will speak about them again. After all, innovation is not only extremely important, but it’s also an …

    Founder Letter: What I Learned from the ICD-10 Conference

    Note: Congress has passed legislation to delay ICD-10 implementation until October 1, 2015. Read the full story here . The current healthcare system is broken. That’s clear—regardless of your political point of view. To be honest, I’ve been a bit of a naysayer in the past about the government’s capacity to be the driving force in healthcare reform—to improve standardization, which ultimately is the key to providing and scaling quality health services. However, after listening to and …

    June Founder Letter: My Biggest Piece of Business Advice

    As a small business owner myself, I understand the trials, tribulations, and joys of running a company—and there are certainly many of each. It can be a roller coaster of responsibilities, expectations, and pressure. And that’s a lot for any person to take on. But with all the downs, there are plenty of ups. For me, one of my greatest moments as a business owner was realizing that I was an entrepreneur—a badass, rockstar, risk-taking entrepreneur. After …

    May Founder Letter: It's Game On with Functional Limitation Reporting

    There’s no denying that functional limitation reporting is a little more work to get the same (or less if you consider MPPR) reimbursement and that ignites fear among some in our industry. But you shouldn’t be fearful; you should be frustrated at our own inability to document to a standard that shows our clinical relevance and the amazing outcomes we achieve every day in clinics across the US. We haven’t effectively demonstrated evidence-based practice yet, nor have …

    April Founder Letter: Take Your Practice for a Walk on the Green Side

    It’s April. And that means spring has sprung. Even though many across the country would argue that winter is still hanging on for dear life, the leaves will soon unfurl and the sun will shine. So what does this mean for you and your practice? It means now’s the time to shake off the winter doldrums and spring forward (see what I did there?) into new beginnings. Spring means energy, vibrancy, and positivity, so be sure to …
