Nitin Chhoda, an international marketing expert and physical therapist, is offering practitioners new ways an electronic medical record (EMR) can help clinics remain profitable and sustaining the demands of patients in a changing healthcare arena.

Therapists can see at a glance what medications, surgeries and procedures have been employed. Significant treatments can begin sooner and everyone realizes significant savings by eliminating redundant diagnostic tests.

“An EMR speeds up the entire client-clinic experience, from treating the patient to obtaining reimbursements for services,” said Chhoda.

Physical therapy EMR is an information technology that provides clinicians with a highly detailed patient record which is updated instantly and can be accessed by a wide range of medical professionals. Therapists can see at a glance what medications, surgeries and procedures have been employed. Significant treatments can begin sooner and everyone realizes significant savings by eliminating redundant diagnostic tests.

Many of the Affordable Health Care Act (Obamacare) patients are insured through Medicaid, Medicare and similar programs that don’t pay as well as traditional insurance plans. Electronic medical record system contains tools that help clinicians determine the best paying providers to help offset lower payments by government programs, while still providing a superior level of patient care to the greatest number of clients.

Having a continuous cash flow is one of the biggest problems facing any practice and EMRs expedite reimbursement claims. Chhoda added that EMRs offer the most efficient coding options and almost instantaneous billing submissions. The systems are so efficient that billing claims are often ready to be sent by the time a client leaves the office and they almost eliminate rejections. Medical billing can be done individually or as a batch, with payments deposited directly into the practice’s account to facilitate a constant cash flow.

Today’s EMRs are the first generation of integrated electronic office systems that address the entire realm of a clinic’s needs, while adapting to the changing healthcare landscape created by the Obamacare. Chhoda’s new information for clinicians will assist them in reducing costs, creating better cash flow and providing vital services to a growing clientele.
