Ideally, an EMR system contains all the pertinent patient information on a single page, and all that’s needed to update a current visit is a few touches on a screen.

Chhoda is a long-time supporter of the use of EMR systems for physical therapy practices. He recognizes that EMR is an undeniably efficient, cost-effective method for use in physical therapy management. As a physical therapist himself, Nitin Chhoda has first-hand knowledge of daily practice operations. Most therapists see each patient between two and three times per week.

Managing physical therapy billing and coding can be time consuming for busy practices. EMR CPT codes and software, http://www.emrnews.com/cpt-codes-what-is-it/, simplify the business aspect of operating a physical therapy practice. This leaves therapists with more time for what they enjoy most - working with patients. This benefits therapists, staff and patients.

Quickly accessing patient information when scheduling and billing via computer saves valuable time and improves productivity. EMR systems provide indispensable, updated documentation at a glance. “Ideally, an EMR system contains all the pertinent patient information on a single page, and all that’s needed to update a current visit is a few touches on a screen,” said Chhoda.

Billing mistakes can easily occur in busy physical therapy practices. Even small mistakes can be costly. When billing mistakes are made during the claims process, the claim will be rejected or denied. Rejected claims must then be corrected and re-submitted. This costs time and money for practices. EMR can greatly reduce these mistakes.

EMR systems are valuable tools for physical therapy practices. EMRs can decrease the chance of mistakes and expedite corrections, advance daily operations and modernize physical therapy practice management, http://physicaltherapymanagementtips.com/physical-therapy-management-tips/physical-therapy-management-tips-for-patient-retention/.
