By combining easy-to-use scheduling, documentation, billing, reporting and practice management software into one package for single or multiple clinics which is much like physical therapy management and scheduling software, EMR integrates the utilization of overall occupational therapy software. “The average therapist keeps track of over 400 pieces of information for their current caseload. Software makes it easy to keep track of the tasks that are most vital for physical therapy documentation,” Chhoda said.
According to Nitin Chhoda, an international private practice marketing expert, any time a patient has a stroke, the thoughts skills and ability to problem solve are impaired. Frequently, the professional therapist will assist the patient improve these skills to expand the ability to communicate and to better manage events in their living or working environment.
“Mostly, the occupational therapy software is implemented not only with the older patients, but with pediatric patients as well. By way of example, schools may employ an occupational therapist to assess and administer a disabled or injured student's capabilities and advise a therapeutic protocol. Furthermore, physical therapy management protocol in schools may include the customization of equipment as it relates to the classroom and helping the child to engage in sports and other educational activities. Sometimes, a pediatric occupational therapist may work with groups of children,” he added.
At times, physical therapy management may provide early therapeutic therapy to infants and children of toddler age who are shown to have developmental set backs or delays. Normally, in these situations, physical therapy management may be consisting of teaching the patient in the use of fine motor skills. In addition to training the patient in the proper use of hands, the therapist may teach listening, dressing and grooming skills.
The physical therapist will be utilized in a mental health environment. Patients who may take advantage of physical therapy in this setting include those who are emotionally disturbed and those who need assistance in coping with day-to-day living. These patients suffer from such conditions as depression, eating disorders or substance abuse problems.
