EMR Helps Physical Therapy Practices to Go Green

Share Article

Many organizations are wanting practices to become eco-friendly by reducing the volume of paper that is produced in an office each year. For physical therapy documentation, much of the paper reduction use can occur simply by putting physical therapy software into use by the office.

Physical therapy scheduling software reduces the amount of paper used on a daily basis in the office, by having the schedule in an easy to use data base.

Nitin Chhoda, a physical therapy marketing expert, says, “Occupational therapy software marks a monumental shift in how physical therapy offices can go green.”

Chhoda's newest website has articles and information on EMR (electronic medical record), and offers these tips on some ways that EMR software can be used to save millions of trees, while the office becomes eco-friendly compliant by going green.

Using EMR for physical therapy billing, allows patients to have invoices sent by email, rather than printed and mailing bills. This saves not only the paper used for the invoice itself, but also for the envelope, return envelope, stamps and a paper check being returned. Not to mention any other follow-up reminders that would need to be sent.

Physical therapy scheduling software reduces the amount of paper used on a daily basis in the office, by having the schedule in an easy to use data base. This also saves the office staff a lot of extra time, by transferring the hand written information onto several different reporting systems for billing, account and inner office communication. The therapist and staff can easily bring up schedules online using secure software, http://www.emrnews.com/insurance-and-benefits-what-the-average-citizen-should-know.

Other tips to use are e-cards for appointment reminders in place of physically mailing postcards. Reports can be transferred and stored easily as PDF (Portable Document Files), reducing boxes and boxes of records found in the typical physical and occupational therapy office.
