“Paper work, gets shuffled around, lost, misfiled, even entire case files can go missing. This is a huge problem.” Nitin Chhoda said. “Careless record keeping can cause a myriad of problems including lost revenues, opening the practice up to possible lawsuits and potential loss of license of the PT,” Chhoda added.
EMR (electronic medical record) provides an effective way to avoid, and reduce the physical act of recording vital records used for physical therapy documentation. Physical therapy documentation software helps to effectively gather all records into one centralized web-based physical therapy management system.
Chhoda, who is a physical therapist himself, now helps other PT practices in keeping up to date through his new website, http://www.emrnews.com/health-coverage-in-the-new-economy/. Chhoda stated, "Physical therapy software makes billing, scheduling physical therapy appointments, and occupational therapy documentation easy, accurate and quickly accessible by the staff. This allows the physical therapy office to run smoothly and reduces stress by the employees."
EMR for physical therapy services may be mandated by federal law in the near future. Physical therapy EMR software also has a side benefit of being eco-friendly to the environment, by reducing paper used in the office, billing and communication, allowing the physical therapy practice to go green, while increasing efficiency and saving the practice time and money.
"Once put into practice most physical therapists and staff members wonder why they waited so long, to start benefiting from using EMR documentation software systems in the practice." Chhoda said.
