BEDFORD, PA (PRWEB) April 25, 2013
Systems4PT, a provider for physical therapy-oriented software, has recently released a new Evidence Based Module which leverages evidence from patients' progress in order to predict, confirm, document a patient's improvements within a paperless practice. In consideration to the recent healthcare reform in the United States, which requires that physical therapists be paid based on progression rather than services rendered, this tool is extremely useful for physical therapists to incorporate into their practices.
The healthcare changes are logical – measuring performance rather than quantity of sessions allows the high-quality therapists to thrive. However, it does present a bit of a quandary: to meet the need to gather evidence and quantify a patient's progression, a physical therapist must spend more time on completing documentation, which may cut into the time that would otherwise be spent on the physical therapy sessions. The new Systems4PT module provides a solution to this dilemma.
"Medicare's new mandatory reporting of functional deficits compensates and focuses outpatient rehabilitation on the restoration of patients' activities of daily living (ADLs). The problem lies in the fact that the documentation and coding requirements for these new programs leave less time for hands-on patient treatment, which is the basis of patient progression," says Dan Alloway, Vice President of Sales and Marketing of Systems4PT. "Our new module features automated evidence-based documentation and coding, which saves therapists time so they can have more hands-on treatment time with patients than ever before."
Systems4PT is the first company to develop the physical therapy software most therapists use today. They provide a number of paperless physical therapy modules that assist practices use for scheduling, documentation, billing, collection, and management.
