You’re a hard working medical professional, so shouldn’t your bookkeeping be easier? Electronic EHRs dramatically improved the functionality of practicing physical therapy, but recently even more technological advances mean that you can do better. You have the EHRs themselves, appointments, billing, communication, and referrals and authorizations all split up. They all have their own separate programs, programs you likely have to learn, relearn, and pay for. It should be all in one place, in one program, for one price. Exit generic SOAP note templates. Enter Patient Studio with a Physical Therapy EHR that can address many of the needs of your practice.
What is a Physical Therapy EHR?
Patient Studio’s Physical Therapy EHR is an all in one software system custom made for your practice to keep your medical information streamlined. Everything you need to remember about your patient is contained within a specific patient’s profile. All contact information, appointment history, billing information and much more.
Your scheduling is going to be tight. There’s no getting around it, not in this field. Your goal is to fit as many patients into one day as possible, and why shouldn’t you? It helps you and them! What doesn’t help them is getting mismanaged. Has it really been 2 months since their last checkup? Or was it 3? Wait, is sweet old Mrs. Johnson coming in today?The constant questions associated with managing appointments can lead to stress for you,, your coworkers, and the patients. If you can’t keep your schedule straight, you look disorganized to your patients and your boss.

You’ll recall that sweet old Mrs. Johnson is coming tomorrow, not today. Mixup avoided.

Does your patient prefer to be contacted by phone? Slide their phone number up to the top of their record so it’s the first thing you see. Do they prefer email instead? Make sure the address field is the first thing you see on the document. Do they have an allergy to any medications? Definitely make sure this information is easily accessible within the document.
PatientStudio’s Physical Therapy EHR has additional benefits, like improved communication between office staff as well as with patients..

You make your communication clearer by being able to simply access the all in one patient portal and find the answer you are looking for. The knowledge of your patient will feel more comfortable and your patients will pick up on that and also feel comfortable.
