The latest blog talks about the various advantages in using computer tablets within a physical therapy office setting, to interface with the electronic medical record system. Most PT offices are now already converted or soon will be, to using EMR systems. Since the Affordable Healthcare Law will be requiring it next year anyway, most physical therapists are converting their old hand-entry systems to EMR systems now to be prepared for this change-over.

The conversion to the EMR system is a powerful and very positive move for PT clinics. The record-keeping ability and the medical record follow-through accuracy are greatly improved over the hand-written systems of yesterday. Integrating a tablet into the mix is a natural and efficient way to streamline and speed along the data entry process for the therapists and assistants.

Tablets can be interfaced with the EMR system via wireless transfer, or through docking the tablet to a PC. Data can be transferred to the cloud-based data storage area via the Internet connectivity and all with extreme ease of use for the therapists and assistants. The office personnel will be most appreciative of this fast and comprehensive way to upload data concerning a patient to the records files.

Electronic medical records systems are the common-sense approach to streamlining a practice, and saving a lot of time and money. Chhoda has studied the topic in depth, and utilizes these systems at his own practice. He can easily show others how to use this technology.
