Beyond the physical therapy billing and documentation needs, an electronic medical record can act as a tracking system as to how patients find out about the practice, how loyal they are to the practice, and more.
Denville, NJ (PRWEB) November 07, 2012
Managing insurance claims can be a difficult daily activity for physical therapists running a privately owned practice. To make the process easier, doctor of physical therapy and author, Nitin Chhoda is announcing the solution that helps physical therapists avoid having their insurance claims rejected so that they can increase profits. Through the use of an electronic medical record (EMR), which acts as physical therapy documentation software, practices can make sure that all patient documentation is done correctly and efficiently.
Through increased documentation accuracy, practices can also ensure more precise physical therapy billing. Through the touch of a few buttons, doctors are able to update a patient’s record and provide proper documentation for the office staff. An EMR system makes physical therapy billing a breeze by allowing an insurance claim to submitted before the patient even leaves the office. Through submitting a claim timely and having a more consistent documentation method, payments from insurance companies are more likely to come through.
Chhoda, who is also an international private practice marketing expert, encourages those running a practice to use EMR more than just day-to-day tasks. Beyond the physical therapy billing and documentation needs, an electronic medical record can act as a tracking system as to how patients find out about the practice, how loyal they are to the practice, and more. This type of data can be analyzed for marketing purposes, and can allow doctors to make better decisions when trying to expand their clinic.
No practice is perfect; in fact every one has something they need to work on—whether it is billing, documentation, bed-side manner, patient waiting times, or a lack of marketing. An electronic medical record provides viable solutions for many of the biggest issues that physical therapy clinics struggle with.
