For physical therapy management, nothing can compete with the reporting capabilities of physical therapy software.

The EMR for physical therapy services provides software for billing, scheduling, management, documentation and can pull this information together to form easy access to statistics. Nitin Chhoda, a licensed physical therapist and private practice marketing expert, says, “For physical therapy management, nothing can compete with the reporting capabilities of physical therapy software. If reporting is used optimally, the average number of visits per patient can be easily checked. This number can also be correlated with referral statistics. Inefficiencies can be identified where patients are most likely to self-discharge. In the past, this kind of detailed reporting would take a lot of time to compile. With physical therapy software, reports can be generated in minutes.”

Not only will the reporting process save time and efficiency with the reporting and billing processes, but patients can get down to the recovery process by beginning or continuing treatment. In a field where reporting improvement and development is so crucial in the success of the patient and timeliness of recovering, this type of physical therapy documentation software can play a huge role in work productivity in the office as well as recovery productivity.

Chhoda says that this kind of software is best implemented with one person being incredibly knowledgeable in the program so others can go to them with any questions. Physical therapy is a field with demanding knowledge of technology, and the right electronic medical record software can make or break the efficiency of an office. Chhoda explains on the website what to look for in an EMR program and how to best implement the new software into an office where it might take time to get used to unfamiliar software.
