“Physical therapy software utilizes the cloud to store records for fewer maintenance costs, offers access to patient records from anywhere, and information can be accessed from any device,” said Chhoda. “They offer a complete system for billing, scheduling and marketing, and they can be integrated with other office systems. With all the benefits physical therapy software provides, there’s no reason to wait to make the transition to an EMR.”

Perhaps the most important benefit of an EMR is that it’s cloud-based, which means information must only be updated once and it’s instantly available on all devices that are using the system. There’s no need to complete, file, store or transport voluminous paper records and files. Chhoda noted that an EMR is a 21st century digital tool that can be used to simplify and manage every facet and nuance of physical therapy clinics.

Therapists can access records from any location where Internet access is available. Therapists can open and read files, create notes and make a diagnosis from any venue. EMRs are indispensable for those who make house calls, work at multiple facilities, or need to consult with other healthcare providers. Electronic medical records documentation software provides therapists with information quickly and radically reduces errors.

With physical therapy software, bulky computer systems are destined to go the way of the dinosaur. Chhoda noted that unlike other types of occupational therapy software, an EMR can be operated from laptops and iPads, offering an unprecedented level of flexibility and portability. Physical therapy management EMRs are available for Windows and the Mac iOS to accommodate a wide range of preferences. Information can be viewed on any device that can access the Internet and has browser capabilities.

Chhoda’s new reasons for converting to a physical therapy documentation software system provides therapists with three of the most compelling motives for transitioning to a fully integrated EMR system. Portability, anytime access and cloud-based reliability increase the efficiency and profitability of practices, while ensuring an enhanced level of care for clients.
