Denville, NJ (PRWEB) March 30, 2013
No two medical or physical therapy practices are alike, but that doesn’t mean every practice has to reinvent the wheel when it comes to a streamlined, efficient system to manage medical records. Electronic medical records (EMR), is the new front of technology as applied to healthcare.
Nitin Chhoda, a licensed physical therapist and the author of “Marketing for Physical Therapy Clinics” has recently released information on his blog site offering a checklist to physical therapists to use in order to choose the right physical therapy EMR for the their practice. His website is an invaluable source of information for new and seasoned physical therapists looking to bring their business model to the forefront.
According to Chhoda, EMR allows physical therapy documentation to be standardized, efficient and easily retrieved. This allows therapists to be freed up from lengthy manual documentation to focus on the patient therapy. EMR solutions are incorporating aspects of business practice such as scheduling, billing, referrals, credit card processing, therapy progress notes and productivity tracking.
“An excellent resource for physical therapists to start implementing EMR solutions is the website EMRNews.com. The informative blog discusses in depth and various aspects and integration of EMR into physical therapy practice. As of now, I released an article that guides therapists in choosing the right software by providing them a checklist that will help them decide the best EMR system for their practice,” Chhoda said.
The main focus of the blog site is to showcase how electronic medical records or EMR, can solve many of the logistical and financial challenges of a medical based practice.
