EMR for physical therapy services provide therapists with a quick and easy way to document patient records, eliminate billing and coding errors and prevent lawsuits.
Denville, NJ (PRWEB) November 10, 2012
Physical therapy management is a little more complicated than other businesses because of the massive amount of paperwork that has to be maintained.
Nitin Chhoda, an international practice marketing expert and a licensed physical therapist, has updated his website called emrnews.com to address the concerns of physical therapists who want to implement physical therapy scheduling software to improve the efficiency of their business. With more and more physical therapists transitioning to electronic medical records (EMR), Chhoda utilizes his website to introduce new ways that PT practice owners can benefit from the system to market their clinics and keep track of vital statistics.
“EMR for physical therapy services provide therapists with a quick and easy way to document patient records, eliminate billing and coding errors and prevent lawsuits.” said Chhoda. The software can also help therapists with valuable analytic and marketing tools which will increase brand awareness and their profits.
One of the biggest benefits of an EMR system is that it may be programmed to monitor the total number of new patients and referrals a clinic receives each week or each month. With information like that at their fingertips, therapists can easily discover how many individuals actually made an appointment then figure out ways to improve those numbers which will increase their revenues.
Chhoda said, “The source of those referrals can be charted to learn where marketing efforts should be focused.” The statistical data which is provided by an EMR offers valuable information for therapists who want to expand their services, open a new facility, and ascertain staffing requirements.
