As we have progressed through some of the features available in the all in one practice management system provided by PatientStudio in our recent video series, it has come to my attention that many people (staff and providers alike) may not have a grasp of just how the system works. Most who have had experience in the medical or therapy practice field are skeptical that one tool could provide all of the technology required to operate an efficient practice. In addition, because PatientStudio has been built with therapy providers in mind, it is important to understand how a system built specifically for physical therapists would be more helpful than a general practice management system targeted primarily at medical practices.
In this article, we are going to take a brief break from our regularly scheduled video post to answer the question of what is an all in one practice management system and to take a closer look at how implementing a system designed for physical therapy practices, like PatientStudio, can dramatically improve your office productivity.

Why consider PatientStudio for your physical therapy practice management system?
As a therapist you know that no two patients are exactly alike, and their treatments need to be designed for their specific needs. PatientStudio is tailored to meet the needs of physical therapists and not general medical providers. Using a system that is generally built for the practice of a therapist and then further customized to the needs of you as a practitioner can dramatically improve the quality of your work life.
Many of the practices out there are using a practice management system to track patient data, but most have had to use software that was designed for a medical office. At PatientStudio we understand that this one size fits all approach is not beneficial to our users. It is essential that a physical therapist uses a system that will not only allow them to track the patient information they need to keep but will also make it easy to communicate effectively with clients and staff. PatientStudio has an internal messaging system and patient portal that you can integrate into your website. This allows you to manage future patients without any hassles and will reduce front-desk stress.

As a physical therapist, you already know the importance of having a reliable EMR. A custom EMR will enable you to manage your patient’s medical information effectively and keep your patient records secure. The team at PatientStudio has tailored an EMR approach that is simple to use and easy to customize so that the documentation you need everyday is always right at your fingertips and easy to edit.
