    Beware of ICD-10 Shortcuts: The Case Against One-to-One Crosswalking

    ICD-10 is inherently more sophisticated and specific than ICD-9, but that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s more complicated. So, why are healthcare professionals pulling their hair out over the mandatory transition to these new codes? Because learning ICD-10 is like learning a new language. If we were going into this with a clean slate–like a newborn babe—perhaps it wouldn’t be so tough to learn the language. Unfortunately, though, the US healthcare industry has relied on ICD-9 codes for …

    Want to Get More Out of Your CEUs? Here’s How.

Furthermore, you’re boosting your professional development with newly gleaned skills and experience. Although most states require continued education , its importance extends well beyond staying sharp. The …

    Best-of-Breed Solutions vs. Jack-of-All-Trades Software

    After nearly ten years in sales and marketing, I’ve heard—and probably used—every figure of speech imaginable. Whether we’re advising to not count your chickens before they hatch or imploring that you not cry over spilled milk, we use these phrases to succinctly make our points. Perhaps that’s why we’re seeing a debate unfold in our industry pitting “best-of-breed” solutions against “jack-of-all-trades” software. And with our very own Heidi Jannenga deeming 2015 as “ the year of the …

    Founder Letter: ICD-10 Delayed Until 2015

    I originally planned to start this founder letter with “T-minus six months and counting until ICD-10.” However, yesterday, the Senate passed HR 4302, which delays a 24% fee schedule cut, extends the therapy cap exceptions process (i.e., use of the KX modifier), and pushes the ICD-10 implementation date to next year—as in October 1, 2015. For some of you, this might elicit a sigh of relief, but those who were ready are sighing in disbelief. President Obama …

    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 …

    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 …
