Managing your own rehab therapy practice—especially when you’re just starting out—sometimes feels like someone handed you the keys to a new car and said, “Don’t crash!” Sure, you already have your driver’s license—but as it turns out, running a competitive PT, OT, or SLP business is less like navigating the neighborhood on a slow Sunday drive, and more like peeling out on a racetrack and hurtling around with smoke on your trail.
Luckily, you don’t need a self-driving car to stay on the road: all you need is the right data. After all, data rules the modern, digitized world we live in—and if you’re not tracking your practice’s stats, you’re missing a huge opportunity to put the pedal to the metal and zoom past your competition.
So, don’t miss your chance to gain the essential business knowledge you need to keep your therapy organization from spinning out before it reaches top speed. Join Dr. Heidi Jannenga, PT, DPT, ATC, WebPT President and Co-Founder, and Russell Olsen, WebPT Vice President of Innovation and Product Management, for our webinar at 9:00 AM PST (10:00 AM MST/11:00 AM CST/12:00 PM EST) on Thursday, February 7, 2019.
During the webinar, our hosts will:
- Reveal the 10 most important stats for your practice to track;
- Explain how to calculate those metrics; and
- Demonstrate the importance (and benefits!) of tracking them.

Many practices are experiencing higher levels of bad debt than they have in the past—partially due to the proliferation of high-deductible health plans that place greater financial responsibility on patients. And when patients don't pay the full amount they are responsible for—and practices fail to collect past-due amounts—the go-to solution often is writing off those totals as bad debt. But financially, that is not an ideal course of action. So, let's talk about how to optimize your …

As the old saying goes, “Organization is a virtue.” Okay, maybe that’s not how it goes, but that doesn’t mean it’s not true. It’s impossible to overstate the value of being organized, especially if you’re a busy clinic owner or office manager. And you probably know that the ability to keep yourself—and your schedule—well-organized is crucial. But for some folks, the constant ebb and flow of cancellations, no-shows, last-minute appointments, and documentation demands is enough to make …

In 2016, Forbes reported that doctors spend more than 66% of their time on paperwork. And a good deal of that paper-pushing is insurance-related. There’s no denying that working with insurance companies is a challenging—yet required—part of running a rehab therapy clinic. One of the biggest hurdles in this professional relationship is negotiating contracts. Most medical professionals have at least heard a story of a nightmare negotiation that led to nothing but frustration. Ultimately, insurance companies usually …

I’m going to be frank here: setting the right fee schedule for your clinic is important—like, really, really important. Why is it such a big deal?

When new patients step into your office, you’re not just improving their day-to-day function—you’re showing them the value of their health and well-being. By seeking out movement-based therapy, patients are making an investment in their physical welfare. So, as …

In the words of the great William Shakespeare, “All the world's a stage; and all the men and women merely players.” Whether we’re talking about the world’s stage or an actual stage, the success of every great performance hinges on each actor’s ability to fully embrace his or her role. In the case of a rehab therapy ensemble, each role is instrumental to ensuring the success of the entire practice. And when it comes to measuring that …
