Denville, NJ (PRWEB) October 13, 2012

Electronic medical records allow medical practices the ability to keep detailed records of each patient without the use of lots of papers and pens. The physical therapy software has many incredible benefits, including the fact that information is faster to enter, review, and communicate with others. This can improve efficiency within the office as well as the health care practice management, and when communicating with other clinics or hospitals.

International marketing expert, Nitin Chhoda, believes that, “Electronic medical records provide therapists with a quick and easy way to document patient records to prevent lawsuits, eliminate billing and coding errors, and expedite payments.” The longtime advocate of electronic office systems went on to say, “Electronic medical records are versatile systems that also provide clinics with valuable analytic and marketing tools.”

Electronic medical records systems are web-based, and can be accessed with ease from any internet-enabled computer or mobile device, http://www.emrnews.com/physical-therapy-management-of-emr-top-ten-benefits/. This provides physicians instant access to critical data and treatment histories from in-or-outside of their facility. Electronic medical records played a significant part in the 2009 H1N1 pandemic allowing hospitals and public health officials to track the ascent and descent of reported cases in virtually real-time.

Chhoda uses electronic medical records for physical therapy services and to provide practice owners with innovative ways to monitor patient medical records, referrals and the success of marketing endeavors. Electronic medical record systems provide physical therapists with state-of-the-art tools to provide physical therapy scheduling software, better customer service, increase revenues and grow their practice. Implementing is well worth the effort.
