Setting a system in place isn’t that difficult and includes many benefits for physical therapists, from protecting owners from lawsuits and maintaining compliance to creating more free time.

The mere mention of EMR, (electronic medical record), for physical therapy services strikes terror in the hearts of most PT's. But according to international physical therapy marketing expert, Nitin Chhoda, using physical therapy scheduling software can reduce cost of billing and provide opportunities to increase profits and marketing efforts.

"There’s a wealth of reasons to invest in an EMR software system." Chhoda said. “Setting a system in place isn’t that difficult and includes many benefits for physical therapists, from protecting owners from lawsuits and maintaining compliance to creating more free time.”

Nitin Chhoda’s expertise is based on his many years of experience working with physical therapy scheduling software, and office systems to assist therapists who are uncertain about using electronic medical records in their practice.

"Those that get on board early will also have the benefit of being ahead with the proposed mandatory compliance." Chhoda added. "It's going to be difficult for physical therapists to get a quality software system in place, and up and running when everyone is scrambling to meet government compliance." Chhoda stated.

Chhoda advises PT's to conduct an in depth review of the available physical therapy documentation software systems that are out there. He has offered his expertise to physical therapists, in helping them to select an EMR system that best fits the needs and size of each individual practice.

EMR for physical therapy services, helps therapists manage their patient relationships without the need to rely on memory, and fits into the regular workflow of the office especially with occupational therapy clients.
