“A physical therapy-based EMR has the ability to provide a variety of information that practice owners can utilize to determine their staffing needs,” said Chhoda. “Its primary advantage is superior documentation for better patient outcomes, and it contains tools to accomplish much more and one of those is determining staffing requirements.”
A private practice must maintain a steady flow of patients to remain profitable, but the practice will suffer if all staff members aren't working at peak productivity. EMRs have the ability to track staff members in a variety of areas, from when they begin to work and the length of their breaks to the time it takes to perform each treatment and task and the amount of off time they request.
Chhoda even added that practitioners can utilize that information to track patient trends and schedule staff to meet changing demands. This physical therapy software system provides data which can demonstrate if the practice is carrying too many employees compared to patient numbers, and if downsizing staff is an option that should be examined. The figure reports offer key statistics for practitioners, providing them with information on optimal times for expansion.
The EMR system has the ability to automate tasks traditionally handled by staff such as contacting clients with appointment reminders and balances owed. Incentive programs can also be conducted via EMR that rewards staff for superlative performance and productivity.
An EMR encompasses a wealth of functionalities that can be utilized to manage staff in any physical therapy practice. Chhoda’s new information determines many ways how clinicians can save money and increase productivity with their physical therapy EMR, allowing them to expand and grow as opportunities are presented.
