Technology in a practice setting simplifies office processes, eliminates waste and provides an enhanced level of convenience for patients. Nitin Chhoda, a physical therapist and marketing expert, offers therapists new ways an EMR can simplify patient management.

EMR systems

The instant availability of information allows therapists to evaluate prior procedures and ascertain the efficacy of each. Clinicians can then develop new and innovative treatments for their clients.

“An electronic medical record (EMR) will impact every area of your practice. It’s going to make your clinic more efficient, productive and profitable,” said Chhoda.

An integrated EMR manages all facets of a patient’s care. Treatment and pertinent information are easily and efficiently conducted. The software system allows therapists to obtain a client’s status at a glance and maintain contact with patients through multiple methods. Chhoda noted that an EMR provides a complete snapshot of a patient’s status, allowing clinicians to address client needs better and institute a course of treatment quicker.

Chhoda named the following benefits of an EMR for simplifying and managing patient care for continuity.

  • Diagnosis history
  • A complete record of x-rays, lab work and tests
  • Immunization records
  • Live, instant updates by multiple providers
  • Collaboration with other healthcare providers
  • Online prescriptions, refills and medication history
  • Online patient forms, scheduling and appointments
  • Online physical therapy billing and self-pay options
  • Instant referrals
  • Scan, digitize and import paper records into the EMR system in multiple formats
  • Secure, HIPAA-compliant communications via email, phone, and voice and text messaging

Today’s patient typically has at least two healthcare providers they see on a regular basis, and with the number of specializations in each field, patients may see four or more providers. An EMR can be accessed by multiple healthcare professionals and instantly updated by each for the most accurate data possible. The instant availability of information allows therapists to evaluate prior procedures and ascertain the efficacy of each. Clinicians can then develop new and innovative treatments for their clients.

This new information by Chhoda provides physical therapy practices with compelling reasons for implementing an integrated EMR. The physical therapy software systems simplify the patient management process and extend to all aspects of a practice, providing continuity of care in the clinic and with other providers.
