Denville, NJ (PRWEB) July 24, 2012

Physical therapy software will see additional features added as more input is received from therapists, said Chhoda. EMRs can be very expensive and more cloud-based solutions or outsourcing will be sought to save money. Two of the largest concerns for practice owners is the need for security and remaining HIPAA compliant, which will entail building stronger protections for patient information.

Just as the Internet has evolved to meet the changing needs of users, EMRs will transform physical therapy management. The trend in physical therapy EMRs is toward expanded patient portals that require clients to accept more responsibility for their care, treatment and information. An EMR also facilitates communications between patients and therapists, making it as easy to exchange messages as it is to post on social media sites.

Chhoda noted that part of the communication process will include transferability and access to records from anywhere in the world for enhanced patient care. Currently, client record sharing is a hodge-podge of access ranging from regional to statewide, depending on the provider and the EMR system in place. In an age of global travel, physical therapy management will include access to patient records among all providers for more effective treatment.

The proliferation of apps will extend to EMRs, giving them additional flexibility. Mobile apps will play a key role and could eventually lead to a marketplace where therapists can pick and choose from selections compatible with specific EMRs to expand their range of options.

Physical therapy management software provides clinic owners with the ability to delegate a variety of tasks to staff members that are currently handled by therapists. Prescription refills can be approved by trusted staff. Instructions, notes, x-rays and test results can be posted online instead of having patients return to the office. Backed by the data available in the EMR, errors are reduced while efficiency and accuracy are increased.

Sometimes less is more, and EMRs are assisting in reducing the number of expensive tests that include MRIs and CT scans, providing overall savings for patients and insurance providers. EMRs provide all healthcare providers with a comprehensive record of tests and procedure, saving time that can be better spent on treatments.

There are virtually no limits to the ways an EMR system can be utilized, giving rise to new and innovative means of communication and physical therapy management as information technology continues to evolve. Chhoda noted that trends for EMRs will continue to change as their usage increases, providing the means for better healthcare across multiple disciplines and more profitable practices.

Denver, CO (PRWEB) May 16, 2012

Aspen Advisors, a U.S.-based global healthcare consulting firm, announces a new book co-authored by principal Guy Scalzi and Dr. Roger Kropf, a Professor in the Health Policy and Management Program at New York Universitys Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service. The book titled IT Governance in Hospitals and Health Systems, published by the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS), is the second book co-authored by these two healthcare IT leaders. It offers a practical how to guide to creating an information technology governance structure that ensures that IT projects supporting a hospitals or health systems strategy are completed on time and on budget.

In this book, Guy and Roger define and describe IT governance as it is currently practiced in leading healthcare organizations and provide step-by-step guidance so readers can replicate these best practices at their own hospital or health system, said Nancy Vitucci, Senior Manager of Publications at HIMSS.

With the number of competing initiatives on the priority lists of hospital executive teams such as Meaningful Use, ICD-10, and Accountable Care Organization structures and their IT implications, its essential that a strong governance model be deployed to prioritize initiatives, align projects and capital spend with key organizational priorities, establish the appropriate champions and sponsors to successfully drive the top priorities forward, and define ways to measure results, said Scalzi, book co-author and Principal at Aspen Advisors.

IT governance remains one of the biggest challenges in healthcare, said Daniel Herman, Managing Principal and Founder of Aspen Advisors. Organizations continue to battle with the dilemma of having much more demand for IS services than supply and budget to service. Requests for new projects often arrive with ineffective mechanisms to manage project prioritization, funding, and resources allocation. IS then gets put in the position where theyre overwhelmed, under-budgeted, and under-delivering.

Herman added, This book is very timely and one that healthcare leaders across the C-suite should read.
