Global PT Day of Service is right around the corner—this upcoming weekend, to be exact. What does that day signify? Well, it means that on October 17, 2015, physical therapists all across the globe are joining together to donate their time in service to their local communities. In the spirit of giving, our founder and COO, Dr. Heidi Jannenga—along with a crew of WebPT employees—will join together with students and other physical therapists across the Phoenix valley to make a positive impact on our community.
According to the APTA, many providers consider dry needling “a safe, easy-to-learn, minimally discomforting, and often-effective technique for patients with certain presentations.” Yet, it remains a controversial practice. Much of the concern lies in the fact that this modality involves piercing the skin; many acupuncturists would argue that PTs don’t have the expertise to perform this type of manual therapy.
With new technology—and the help of the WebPT Marketplace—you can improve patient outcomes. Check out this blog post to learn more.
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.
Looking for a fun and hands-on CEU experience? Look no further than the WebPT Marketplace.
We’ve been in business for six years now, and most people know us for our documentation. As Members, you use our documentation platform daily. But did you know that your Membership with WebPT includes so much more than documentation? We’ve adopted a mission of empowering rehab therapists to achieve greatness in practice. So, while we might have started out as a documentation company, we have evolved into a solutions company. So, to take a page from Aladdin, let me open your eyes to a whole new world of WebPT:
Oodles of Content
If you’re reading this founder letter, that means you’re currently on our blog. But my letters aren’t the only thing here. We pick a different theme each month—such as compliance, company culture, or marketing best practices—and post roughly 16 articles dedicated to that topic over the course of the month. (As a heads-up, February’s theme is WebPT tips and tricks.) We also host monthly webinars inspired by these themes.
We offer all this content for free to everyone—Members and non-Members alike. Why? Because, as I said above, our goal as a company is to help rehab therapists achieve greatness in practice. And that starts with education.
Discounted PT Products
There’s power in numbers, and with more than 30,000 Members, WebPT packs a lot of punch when it comes to purchasing potential. As a Member, you automatically have access to our ecommerce site, the WebPT Marketplace. There, you can save up to 25% off wholesale on the products and supplies your practice needs. You’re already buying these products, so we wanted to provide a way for you to save money in the process. In fact, depending on how much you shop, the amount you save buying through the Marketplace could actually cover the cost of your Membership. Pretty cool, right? To explore the Marketplace, simply click the shopping cart icon in the top-right corner of the WebPT Dashboard.
A Partner in Compliance
As a therapist, your number-one priority is treating your patients. But to keep doing that, you have to get paid, and in times of increasing regulations and decreased reimbursements, your clinic can’t afford any slip-ups—like penalty fees, denied reimbursements, or audits. That’s where WebPT comes in. We’re your partner in compliance, dedicated to helping you ensure your documentation and billing are up to snuff while providing a wealth of educational materials, including entire sites dedicated to hot compliance topics—namely, ICD10forPT.com and functionallimitation.org. That way, you’re prepared for anything.
We created WebPT after identifying a problem with no solution. And along the way, we found even more problems to solve—thanks in part to feedback from you, our awesome Members. The result is everything I discussed above—and there’s more to come. So go ahead; hop aboard your magic carpet and discover this whole new world of WebPT. Take advantage of it! After all, it exists because of you and for you.
It 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.
