Denville, NJ (PRWEB) September 03, 2012
“Today, many therapists have questions, concerns and fears about EMRs and it’s delayed them from implementing one of the most useful tools they’ll ever have for their practice,” said Chhoda. “An EMR will actually enhance any practice, from the way clinic owners submit reimbursements to their interaction with patients.”
EMRs allow therapists to enhance every aspect of their practice. Many clinicians are concerned about remaining HIPAA compliant, while others fear that an EMR will be an intrusive factor during doctor-patient interactions, preventing a true client-therapist connection. Others view EMR technology as potentially overwhelming. Chhoda offered the newest tips on how to use an EMR to enhance their practice.
An EMR provides therapists with instant access to a client’s complete health record, allowing treatment to begin quicker. The EMR contains all the tests, medications, surgeries, allergies and procedures related to the patient, allowing clinicians to dispense with costly and wasteful duplication of tests so therapeutic measures can begin sooner.
Therapists can utilize their EMR through the vehicle of an iPad to teach clients about their conditions, treatments and options. Systems are compatible with multiple web browsers and can help educate clients through photos, videos and text to help them take a more active role in their treatments, outcomes and recovery. As a trusted source, therapists have the ability to provide patients with reliable information to prevent misunderstandings and misinformation.
Improved patient interaction
Physical therapy documentation software provides therapists with multiple means of communicating with clients using 21st century technology. Reminders about appointments and outstanding balances can be delivered via email, phone, and text and voice messaging. Patients can complete health histories and other pertinent documents online to reduce wait time when clients arrive for their appointment.
Increased cash flow
The latest physical therapy software allows clinicians to manage their cash flow more efficiently with electronic reimbursement submissions. Claims can be submitted individually or automated for batch submissions at the end of the day. Funds can be approved and deposited directly into accounts in days instead of weeks or months. Advanced billing and coding options drastically reduce the number of denials and requests for additional information.

Physical therapy software offers the latest powerful tools to communicate, educate and accelerate office tasks and procedures. Patients enjoy an enhanced level of care with treatments that can be initiated sooner. Quicker turnarounds on reimbursements provide practice owners with the needed funds to conduct business on a daily basis, while offering the means for clinicians to plan, expand and build prosperous practices.
