Physical therapy software streamlines every aspect of practice management, from documenting patient visits to faster reimbursements,” said Chhoda. “An EMR can manage patient scheduling and handle billing, allowing therapists to develop more effective treatments.”
A licensed physical therapist himself, Chhoda has collaborated with inventor, Ritika Gulrajani, to create a physical therapy documentation software and system specifically developed for physical therapists. It will provide complete patient care platform and electronic billing center, utilizing electronic versions of forms with which therapists are familiar. They can be customized to address the needs of individual practices.
Better patient care, enhanced efficiency and greater profitability are the hallmarks of an EMR system. Clinics employing occupational physical therapy software experience significantly fewer reimbursement denials and quicker turnaround on payments for increased financial health. Chhoda noted that electronic medical records provide therapists with a complete system of documentation and protection should a malpractice suit be filed.
Patients have access to an extensive array of treatments, procedures and prescription medications and before the creation of EMR systems, therapists could wait days or weeks to obtain pertinent medical information from other providers.

Physical therapy management software integrates easily into the normal workflow of any practice for greater efficiency in all departments. Clients can utilize an EMR patient portal to schedule appointments, enter insurance information or request information. The software offers an efficient means of gathering contact information of potential patients, ascertaining where referrals are originating and where marketing efforts should be focused.
A future physical therapy management software will provide a new level of documentation for all facets of physical therapy practices. The collaboration of Chhoda and Gulrajani offers therapists a free physical therapy documentation system that requires no expensive monthly fees and integrates the abilities most desired by practice owners to move them forward to the next level of patient treatment and clinic profitability.
