“Electronic medical records are more than just a physical therapy billing software. It provided valuable information that private practice owners can use to market their business, track new patients and referrals, and expedite the billing and payment process,” Chhoda said.
He added that by 2014, President Obama is implementing EMR as part of his economic plan. It is important for a physical therapist to understand this latest documentation.
Having an EMR system provides physical therapists with the means to access a patient’s complete medical record, including treatments, procedures and prescriptions obtained from other medical professionals. It also provides ongoing physical therapy documentation in the event that a physical therapist retires, relocates or dies. Significant savings are possible as the cost of paper records and space to store them are already eliminated.
Physical therapists who utilize the use of EMR will have more time in marketing their practice so as to increase referrals. Electronic medical records help in pinpointing accuracy and discovering the efficacy of the system. It provides the technology to improve profitability across multiple levels, allowing practice owners to cut costs, increase productivity and boost profits.
