There are some systems that seem to work better than others, but the American Physical Therapy Association is working hard to create a standardized system which can be used across multiple health care settings and disciplines.
Denville, NJ (PRWEB) February 23, 2013
Chhoda said, “An EMR (electronic medical record) system isn’t hard to implement and if it is used correctly, it can reduce the amount of time support staff allocates to record keeping and appointment setting.” One of the biggest EMR benefits PT management professionals report is the elimination of redundant data entry tasks.
Over the past few years, many EMR and physical therapy scheduling software systems have been introduced into the market most of which work well for small practices. Chhoda said, “There are some systems that seem to work better than others, but the American Physical Therapy Association is working hard to create a standardized system which can be used across multiple health care settings and disciplines.”
Most EMR systems allow users to do the same things such as manage calendars automatically, send patient bills and track the number of ‘no show’ appointments. “Physical therapy scheduling software can make your life a lot easier if you run a PT practice with a large number of patients” said Chhoda.
“I just want to say thanks for all the helpful content on this website. I recently went out on my own and I have so much work to do that it seems I can’t focus on one thing at a time. I spent an entire Sunday reading your articles and I got a lot of great ideas on how to improve my processes. Keep up the good work!” – Anthony DeVito,
Physical therapists are encouraged to visit the EMR News website to learn more about how to save time and money by automating record keeping and how to automate appointment setting. The website is regularly updated with helpful how-to articles and guides for PT professionals.
