EMRs for physical therapy services provide an ease of organization for billing and past medical history. Often times in the physical therapy field, patients can forget past treatments or even forget to pay bills, which can cause damage to your private practice. An EMR patient portal allows physical therapists to have all the necessary information in order to create the best recovery program for the patient. In an EMR, patient test results can also be recorded to monitor progress through numbers or visual graphs.
According to licensed physical therapist, Nitin Chhoda, with traditional medical records, records can become lost, damaged or destroyed while an EMR has a more everlasting impact for the best outcome for the patient. Notes can be read more easily and transferred with occupational therapy software if something happens to the therapist such as retirement, moving or even death.
Cloud-based EMRs also create great ease when a patient goes to visit another provider and the other provider can view the most up-to-date information about the patient. The patient will also feel more at ease by not having to fill out the same paperwork at another provider and because the second provider will be given the most accurate and current information through this physical therapy software.
“Scheduling can also become simpler by using this tool as physical therapy scheduling software. Patients are able to schedule times more accurately around their needs and their lifestyle since often times in a physical therapy private practice, multiple patients are seen at a time and sometimes more than once a week,” Chhoda said.
Overall, this physical therapy documentation software will simplify the physical therapy business as well as the patient’s life. By serving multiple purposes and available to use on laptops and tablets, EMRs for physical therapy services are extremely helpful and easy to use.
