Since EMR is the latest physical therapy documentation system, theres a temptation to simply go with an EMR based on what the vendor says about it, said Chhoda. Dont believe everything youre told and look at several before making a decision. An EMR will be with the practice for many years and impact every part of the business, http://physicaltherapytechniques.com/physical-therapy-techniques/physical-therapy-techniques-revealed/. A physical therapy documentation system must be able to grow along with the clinic.

Chhoda, being a physical therapist himself, said that an EMR should be chosen based on its usability. An EMR created for a hospital instead of a small specialty clinic will cause nothing but problems for a physical therapy business. The selected EMR should be specifically designed for a physical therapy practice and increase the overall efficiency of the clinic, allowing tasks to be completed faster.

Chhoda added that clinicians should consider its ease of use. A clinics EMR should be easy for staff to use and the learning curve should be kept to a minimum. Although mistakes will be made while staff members learn the new system, therapists should also evaluate how easy it is for those mistakes to occur. An EMR shouldnt facilitate mistakes or make it difficult to achieve accurate documentation.

Usability also includes the satisfaction level of users, though its an element thats more difficult to quantify. Authorized users of an EMR should have the ability to create custom documents to reflect the needs of the clinic. The EMR should encompass the ability to add, correct, remove and update patient information as needed in an easy and straightforward manner. An easy interface between staff and the EMR cant be overstated. The EMRs interface should be simple, natural and consistent throughout.

Utilizing Chhodas new insights will assist therapists in selecting the right documentation software for their practice. Clinics will attain meaningful use standards quicker, with fewer mistakes and less user anxiety. Choosing an EMR based on the needs of the clinic is essential for implementing a system that successfully integrates with the office workflow.
