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.

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 …

Healthcare business owners tend to wear a number of different hats to keep their businesses going. Many have to learn to juggle patient satisfaction , employee performance , and overall clinic success. And while most PT providers focus heavily on the clinical side of things (i.e., providing top-notch patient care), they can’t continue helping patients if they don’t keep their finances in order. With that in mind, here are seven tips to help you overcome one of …

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 …

In our 2019 State of Rehab Therapy survey , 80% of respondents cited payer requirements as the top reason their organizations require physician referrals as a condition of treatment (even in states with unrestricted direct access ). Additionally, high copays and coinsurances were by far the top-ranked regulatory issue in terms of impact to the physical therapy industry and profession. In other words, as it stands, the insurance industry (and its propensity to shift costs onto patients …

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? The answer might seem obvious, but it’s actually a bit more nuanced. 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 …

Much like the patients you treat, your practice can appear healthy on the outside despite significant internal issues. And when those issues are money-related, the consequences can be deadly. If your practice already is in the red, you know you’ve got some pretty serious cash flow problems. But even if you’re in the black every month, you may still be washing dollars down the drain. While there are myriad ways your practice might inadvertently be losing revenue, …

Patient health is the top priority for most rehab therapists—specifically, getting patients back to a level of health that allows them to do what they love. But, when patients say “sayonara” before they reach their therapy goals, they lose the opportunity to live their fullest lives. To make matters worse, the average rehab therapy practice will lose $150,000 annually due to patient dropout alone. Talk about a one-two punch to the gut. Here at WebPT, we believe …
