Coming Soon: The New WebPT Website

Here at WebPT, we like to keep things fresh (see “Be Minty” in this blog post). As such, we decided our website could use a little sprucing up—to make it simpler, cleaner, faster, and more representative of the WebPT brand. When you visit WebPT.com next week, you’ll definitely notice the new design, but don’t let it throw you for a loop. Even though we’ve enhanced the visual appeal of our website, nothing about the WebPT application is changing. The login and contact us buttons still appear in the exact same spot—the top-right corner of the site. Once you log in to WebPT, you’ll see that the application in itself looks exactly the same.

Now, we know that many of you simply visit WebPT.com, click the login button, and get right down to business within the app. However, once we launch the new site, we encourage you to take a few minutes to explore it. We think it’s pretty darn cool—and we have a feeling you’ll think so, too. We’re particularly stoked about our revamped, easier-to-access blog. Of course, as the blog writers, we might be a teensy bit biased.

As always, please share any and all feedback or questions you have. Simply post them in the comments below or click the contact us icon.

Making the Most of WebPT’s Webinars

By now, you’ve probably heard a lot about WebPT’s super informative, spectacularly relevant, and extremely educational webinar series. We’re pretty proud of them. That’s why, today, I’d like to take a few moments to answer some frequently asked webinar questions. 

What is a webinar?

A webinar is a seminar that takes place over the Internet (a web-based seminar = webinar). Unlike a traditional seminar, you can participate in a webinar from anywhere you’d like as long as you have a web-enabled device (i.e., desktop, laptop, tablet, or smartphone). 

How do I attend WebPT’s next webinar?

To learn the topic of WebPT’s next webinar—as well as the date and time—check out this page or watch for WebPT’s monthly newsletter to arrive via email. (If you’re not receiving the newsletter, click here to subscribe.) Find a topic you’re interested in? Great. Simply register for the webinar by completing the registration form. 

What if I can’t make the scheduled date and time? 

No worries. Register anyway, and we’ll email you a recorded version of the webinar within a week after the webinar airs. Or you can view recorded webinars here

How do I join the webinar that I’ve registered to attend?

The day of the webinar, you’ll receive an email from WebPT Co-Founder Heidi Jannenga containing a link you’ll click to access the webinar through GoToMeeting. If it’s your first time attending a WebPT webinar on the device you’re using, you may need to download the GoToMeeting software—but you’ll receive prompts to do so along with instructions. Then, just make sure your computer speakers are turned on and the volume is up. You’ll be able to listen to the webinar directly from your web-enabled device. If you’re unable to download GoToMeeting or wish to listen to the webinar on your phone instead, you may do so by calling the number on the webinar email. 

How do I ask a question during the webinar?

Because WebPT webinars typically have a very high attendance rate, it’s often difficult for the hosts to take questions on air. So, if you have a question during the webinar, please type it into the GoToMeeting text box. The webinar moderators will answer your question via text in real time, pass it on to the webinar hosts to answer on air, or provide you with an answer via email following the webinar. 

Now that you’ve got the answers to these frequently asked WebPT Webinar questions, get a to watchin’. Click here to register for the next WebPT webinar.

Get Involved: Help the APTA #StopTheTherapyCap

In 1997, Congress passed the Balanced Budget Act, which led to the creation of the sustainable growth rate reform (SGR) formula as well as the Medicare therapy cap. According to the APTA—and Congress—these measures were meant to save money. However, there are some serious flaws in both. As a result, every year, Congress has acted to address said flaws and stop the implementation of a hard cap. (For more information on the therapy cap and how it applies to you, check out this blog.)

My Favorite Moments from Washington DC

Earlier this month, I packed my bags and headed off to Washington DC along with Courtney Klein Johnson and Chris Petroff, founders of social incubator and fellow Phoenix tech startup, SeedSpot. Why were we heading to our nation’s capitol? Aside from wanting to see the famed cherry blossoms bloom, we were invited to take part in Startup America’s Champions Take DC event. Packed with amazing dialogue, brilliant insights, and lots of awesome people, the experience was a lot of things—exciting, educational, inspirational—but most of all extremely humbling.
