“Being in the field of physical therapy is never easy, even if the technology is continuously upgrading,” said Chhoda. “The learning never stops and it shouldn’t. However, it is not enough to know how to treat patients alone. A good physical therapist should know a lot of other things that are related to his or her line of work. Implementation of electronic medical records or EMR for effective management is also vital.”
While some physical therapists would stubbornly cling to the old ways of computerized patient record, or worse manually writing everything down, there is no doubt that the EMR works best for physical therapy management.
Chhoda said that the act of physical therapy documentation can be done by one efficient program that therapists can just refer to at a glance. It is a new way of practicing physical therapy and while it may entail some adjustments at first, there is no doubt that it is the way to go.
According to Chhoda, even the best physical therapist can get confused or can forget things because of the sheer number of patients he or she handles in a day. One can always use a little help which is something that the EMR specializes in.
Having a systematic physical therapy documentation reaps a lot of benefits. Therapists would immediately know the treatment that the patient requires which means that they would not have to waste precious time trying to recall previous treatments. It minimizes, if not totally eliminate, errors pertaining to billing, coding and payment.
Chhoda added that physical therapists do not need to be hassled by unnecessary things. This will give them the opportunity to do so much more in a day and serve their clients better. Those practitioners who would like to come up with a referral program, the physical therapy EMR can in rewarding referring patients and create good relationships.
Having an EMR system improves scheduling management. Clnicians can review and monitor patients in an instant and overscheduling of patients in a day in also avoided. It is the new and perfect planning tool to a more efficient way of managing a practice.
