With new developments and many more to come, it is essential that any office offering physical therapy services must have EMR physical therapy documentation software in place.

“Physical therapy software has the advantage of not only providing accurate physical therapy documentation, but the physical therapy software can also provide automatic reminders sent by emails to patients.” Nitin Chhoda, a physical therapist and marketing expert, stated.

EMR software protects the physical therapist from many record keeping errors.

With the advancement of cloud systems, EMR information can be safely secured off site, offering many advantages in the case of an on-site system crashes or other disasters such as flood or fire occur. The cloud system also allows easy access by the physical therapist or staff, along with secure patient access from any location at any hour of the day or night. Other advancement with internet technology is the ability for video conferencing and potential new client education.

“Other developments are happening with QR codes, those funny little mosaic looking squares that are popping up everywhere. QR codes can be used in hundreds of applications from directions to an office, allowing a patient to quickly scan for exercise, or dietary, along with other related details.” Chhoda said.

EMR for physical therapy services will be offering even more advancements, almost on a daily basis.

“The technology is ever advancing,” says Chhoda. “Keeping up with all the advancements can be a bit overwhelming and time consuming for the therapist and the staff. That is why I keep up with what is going on and how it can be used to advance EMR systems for physical therapy services.”
