“The sooner therapists embrace EMR technology the better,” said Chhoda. “Electronic medical records offer convenience for clients and clinicians, providing the portability to expand into new and lucrative markets. In the 21st century practice, there’s no good reason for clinics to be chained to paper records, bulky equipment and old-fashioned methods.”
He added that practitioners must be vigilant and take advantage of new markets when opportunities present themselves. A web-based EMR employed with tablet technology allows therapists to be as mobile as their clientele and provide services in venues that wouldn’t previously have been easily accessible.
Chhoda said that the modern trend among medical professionals is promotion of a healthy lifestyle to minimize or avoid problems before they arise. Preventative measures have given rise to corporate wellness programs around the globe, a market where the value of a portable EMR can’t be understated. Therapists have access to large numbers of clients in a single location and the portability of physical therapy software allows them to travel to multiple locations and take the needed forms and records with them.
There was a tune when therapeutic massage was once a service only provided in a clinical setting, but many therapists are utilizing the portability of an EMR to exercise their expertise in posh spas, luxury resorts and sports clinics. A portable EMR can be accessed from any location where an active Internet connection is available.
According to Chhoda, an aging population is utilizing the services of physical therapists to stay limber, active and relieve pain. Enterprising clinicians are using portable EMR technology to proffer a wide range of services at senior citizen facilities and through in-home care programs. The EMR offers the means for maintaining on-the-go evaluations, patient documentation, insurance information and medical billing.
Chhoda’s new information touches on just some of the many ways portable EMR technology can be used to expand services, develop additional sources of income and expand their client base from virtually any location.
