Physical Therapist, Nitin Chhoda, Unleashes the Power of Profitability from an Integrated EMR System

Denville, NJ, Dec 17, 2012 ( via COMTEX) -- "A six-figure income isn't impossible to achieve, even for owners of small practices or those who have wildly fluctuating patient numbers," said Chhoda. "In the beginning, it's more important to define your goals to eliminate unfortunate surprises down the road. An EMR automates low-value tasks that eat up time and effort, allowing clinicians to concentrate on high-value tasks that generate the income to sustain the practice." An integrated EMR designed specifically for a physical therapy clinic reaches into every facet of the practice, from the first patient contact to sending reimbursement claims. It provides information practitioners can use to develop and execute marketing campaigns, determine staffing requirements, and collect online payments.

EMRs offer built-in tools to track and monitor income sources, services that generate the most funds, and locate low-value tasks that can be delegated. Practitioners can easily track income trends throughout any given year, allowing them to organize major marketing efforts and events for ebbs in earnings.

Therapists gain a multitude of knowledge about the human body while learning their profession, but the process doesn't include practical business management. Chhoda noted that clinicians must be ruthless in their pursuit of profitability and success, and an EMR facilitates those efforts by automating and streamlining staffing, reimbursements, services and collections.

Chhoda's new information provides valuable insight for clinicians about the power and abilities of an EMR. The integrated systems offer tools that can be used to boost revenues, increase collections, entice new patients to the business, and plan for potential lean times. A six-digit income is within reach of small practices when they implement a system and unleash the possibilities and promise available within an EMR.
