Physical therapists should conduct due diligence when it comes to choosing the right EMR system for their practice.
Denville, NJ (PRWEB) July 25, 2012
“Updating physical therapy documentation system by using electronic medical records could actually benefit many private practice owners because it will protect their business from lawsuits and maintaining compliance.” Chhoda said. He added that there are a number of EMR systems available with its own set of benefits and drawbacks. Physical therapists should conduct due diligence when it comes to choosing the right EMR system for their practice.
Manual documentation of patients’ record is really time-consuming. It even requires more people because they will be assigned to specific tasks that will make the documentation faster. With EMR, physical therapy billing and documentation will be much easier and accurate. EMR systems allow therapists to create a permanent record much quicker and the savings in time can be reallocated to treating more patients or leisure time pursuits. Billing is more efficient and payment is brought into the practice quicker.
Chhoda’s insights into EMR systems makes use of his many years of experience and expertise with office systems to assist therapists who have not yet employed electronic medical records in their practice. EMRs for physical therapy management offer extensive benefits over conventional methods, allowing therapists to remain in compliance, avoid lawsuits, and manage patient care more effectively, while reducing billing errors for increased revenue.
