Denville, NJ (PRWEB) December 10, 2012
Nitin Chhoda, a licensed physical therapist, stated he is making it a priority, especially this month, to help other professionals learn the added benefits of using EMR in their office before the year ends. Chhoda said that using EMR in a PT office is not only cost effective, but with today’s high-speed technology and secure cloud storage, it only makes logical sense to use this system.
“If you want to start eliminating errors in billing or other areas, EMR is the most cost effective method to use today,” says Chhoda. “EMR systems provide the physical therapy office with most up-to-date tools, and it allows one to maintain a leading edge in the industry. It also helps the office increase profits and relive unwanted office stress with the meticulous old fashioned record keeping systems.”
Chhoda pointed out that when a physical therapy offices moves to EMR, payments being acquired come in faster, and patients feel more like they are being welcomed into a family. Past errors and mistakes made with the pen and paper system are gone.
Chhoda also stressed the importance physical therapy is to a patient and said that adding more stress to the therapist in regards to patient records and maintenance is something they should not have to deal with. “Physical therapy personnel are trained to be the best at being personnel and helping the patient achieve their independence in life. Being friendly and caring is as much of a part of physical therapy as the physical part therapy itself,” said Chhoda. “So, by going to an EMR and eliminating errors on patients’ status or billing makes it well worth it.”
