Free physical therapy software release planned
Therapists looking to simplify their physical therapist job can look forward to a new asset in their business. Nitin Chhoda, a physical therapist and marketing specialist, announced that he plans on giving away the In Touch Electronic Medical Record (EMR) software designed for the iPad for free.
The software can help physical therapists handle their billing, documentation, practice management and scheduling work more efficiently at a lower cost. It was developed by physical therapist Ritka Gulrajani.
"EMRs are faster, cheaper, have better business metrics and the intelligent organization of information," said Chhoda. "Some companies charge several hundred dollars a month for EMR software. I believe physical therapists should have access to state-of-the-art technology that doesn't break the bank. I believe software is a commodity and should be free or low-priced."
The In Touch EMR software is easy to implement and compliant to the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), but it can also help therapists by providing a complete patient care platform. This includes both scheduling and billing, as well as the ability to pull up full patient records with the touch of a button. For therapists who handle a great volume of repeat patients, having the ability to gather past diagnosis and treatment information quickly is a great asset.
Additionally, the electronic billing component of the software will allow practice owners to collect reimbursements even quicker and with less hassle. Therapists can track every step of the billing and payment process, as well as quickly monitor and handle any reimbursement discrepancies between providers. The software is due to be released in six weeks, according to Chhoda.
