"The ability to locate employees who are not using their time wisely is a challenge physical therapy practices face on a daily basis. Until recently, it was very difficult to find and eliminate those wasting time. But now with new advances in EMR, it is easier than ever to increase productivity," said Nitin Chhoda, a private practice marketing expert.
Chhoda, who is also a licensed physical therapist, shares that getting staff on board with a new physical therapy software system is the first step in increasing productivity. According to him, if the staff is excited and understands the benefits of the new system, they will be eager to embrace the changes and their productivity will increase. Choosing just the right EMR software is also incredibly important. He explains how many practitioner choose software without first developing a plan and understanding what they want the software to do for them. They also don’t thoroughly research particular software in advance.
Chhoda added that once in place, the system streamlines operations like physical therapy documentation and physical therapy scheduling. The software easily keeps track of employee activity and helps the practice owner set goals for the firm as well as each individual employee. When the daily activities of each employee are more efficiently planned, they will be able to better manage their time and increase their productivity and the productivity of the office. In the process, the owners of the practice will be able to better understand how their staff is using their time and both find and address inefficiencies.
