The system reduces errors and reimbursement rejections for improved cash flow, and integrates easily with other systems that include Therapy Newsletter and the mobile marketing software, Clinical Contact.

“Physical therapy documentation software facilitates all aspects of practice management. Clinic owners who switched to EMR system will soon begin to see better profitability. As therapists need time to evaluate EMR systems, they should give their staff adequate time to familiarize the EMR system as well, in order to minimize potential problems that may arise,” said Chhoda.

There are numerous EMR systems that come with costly monthly fees. Chhoda noted that there is no need for therapists to spend a fortune to become compliant with In Touch EMR, a new physical therapy software system created by him and his wife, Ritika Gulrajani. This web-based software was specifically developed to address the needs and requirements of physical therapy clinics of any size.

The system format used in this software are those which therapists and staff are most familiar with, from patient health information to billing. It has a patient portal that provides the means for clients to enter their own health and insurance data to reduce waiting time in the office.

This new physical therapy software and documentation system helps therapists manage all departments within their practice -- from scheduling and prescriptions to treatments to electronic billing for better cash flow. Therapists can communicate with other healthcare providers and obtain instant access to records from any location with an Internet connection. The system reduces errors and reimbursement rejections for improved cash flow. It also integrates easily with other systems such as Therapy Newsletter and mobile marketing software, Clinical Contact.

According to Chhoda, the most valuable features of In Touch EMR are speed, reliability, efficiency and better patient care. He advices early adoption of an EMR system to ensure that therapists are in compliance before the 2014 deadline and enables everyone within the practice to become proficient with the system.
