This technology for physical therapy offices allows patients to access forms, provide their medical history and insurance before even stepping into the office for the first time.
Denville, NJ (PRWEB) March 11, 2013
Self-intake technology is something that people, as a culture, are seeing more and more these days. From airport kiosks to movie theaters, people as a whole are becoming more independent in the check-in process, which allows staff of businesses to become more efficient by performing other. Now with physical therapy documentation software, patients in physical therapy offices can check themselves in using self-intake technology for a more smoothly run business.
Nitin Chhoda, a licensed physical therapist and marketing expert, says that at a patient portal, one of the most important features of an electronic medical record or EMR is that patients will save staff time while offering convenience for clients. This technology for physical therapy offices allows patients to access forms, provide their medical history and insurance before even stepping into the office for the first time.
A pre-visit registration process allows clients to input information in during their free time and also allows therapists to review their records and become familiar with the patient before the appointment. This software also allows offices to validate a client’s insurance and available coverage before the patient starts treatment.
According to Chhoda, communication is almost instantaneous when communicating with other medical offices as well. What took weeks before can now be done within seconds when offices transfer electronic medical records to one another when it comes to communication on current medications, treatment, and other important information that can be vital for the best of patient health.
Not only will staff notice the speedy responses and the better care, but patients will leave them happy and satisfied with the treatment they receive at a physical therapy office that uses electronic medical records, http://www.emrnews.com/physical-therapy-documentation-productivity-benchmarks-in-your-documentation-system.
Self-intake technology increases efficiency and productivity of a physical therapy office of any size and office managers will see a huge difference. With paperwork being done quicker, staff can focus on the patients more attentively when using electronic medical records.
