Digitally stored records from the physical therapy software can speak for patients in an emergency, are accessible by multiple providers, and don’t rely on paper files that can be lost or misplaced.

“An integrated EMR reduces waste, encourages efficiency and is good for the environment,” said Chhoda. “EMRs are expensive, but they pay for themselves in short order through better patient care, expedited reimbursement claims, and the portability needed to expand into new markets.”

He said an integrated EMR is valuable for practices. While basic electronic health record (EHR) software provides exceptional documentation, an integrated system is necessary to increase a practice’s overall efficiency, productivity and profitability. An EMR compatible with mobile technology enables clinic owners to expand into new and lucrative venues.

Having a web-based EMR provides secure electronic storage for all the practice’s information in the cloud. Data is backed up automatically, eliminating the need for paper records and physical storage space. Practitioners can chart the client’s visit as it’s occurring instead of hours later. Digitally stored records from the physical therapy software can speak for patients in an emergency, are accessible by multiple providers, and don’t rely on paper files that can be lost or misplaced.

Paper records are eliminated and it’s convenient for clinicians and easy on the environment. Date and time stamps provide the means for practitioners to monitor staff for behaviors that waste time and allow clinic owners to schedule staff where they’re the most effective.

According to Chhoda, an integrated EMR allows therapists to complete reimbursement requests in record time for better cash flow. The systems have the ability to notify medical billing personnel if potential problems are found that would result in a denial or rejection of reimbursements, and submit claims electronically.

Chhoda offers clinicians essential information on the abilities of their EMRs and how the systems can benefit every department within a practice. Digital storage, expedited charting, electronic reimbursement submission, and a system that’s environmentally friendly are just a few of the advantages for practitioners employing an EMR. They’ll also experience significant savings, increased productivity and the ability to expand their practice into new and exciting arenas.
