Good physical therapy software eliminates errors, increases efficiencies and actually helps increase the number of successful claims.
Denville, NJ (PRWEB) December 21, 2012
EMR, or electronic medical record management is quickly becoming not only popular but essential amongst those who own and manage their physical therapy practices and Chhoda has been teaching physical therapists the benefits of physical therapy software for many years now. He is an expert in this field and is effective because he has put the power of EMR to work in his own practice.
What Chhoda tells the physical therapists he comes in contact with is that physical therapy software is very effective at meeting the unique needs of a physical therapy private practice. Unlike large hospitals that often struggle to implement and manage EMR, a small physical therapy practice has an advantage when using EMR because of the smaller number of employees that must be trained.
Physical therapy documentation is incredibly important and physical therapy software can play a critical role in making sure everything in the practice is managed properly. Effective physical therapy software meets just about any need a private practice has. Perhaps the most important aspect of physical therapy software is its reporting capabilities. If this reporting feature is used effectively, the average number of visits per patient can be easily monitored and the patients most likely to have repeat visits easily identified.
Billing efficiency is another thing which EMR can help a private physical therapy practice. Medical billing is known as one of the most cumbersome jobs in the world and insurance companies on average pay only half of thee submitted forms. Good physical therapy software eliminates errors, increases efficiencies and actually helps increase the number of successful claims.
Finally, good EMR is an effective physical therapy scheduling software. The software helps physical therapists track how many patients cancel, how often those cancelled appointments get rescheduled, whether cancelled slots get refilled and who are the patients that cancel most often. It is clear why Chhoda spends so much time extolling the virtues of physical therapy software.
