automated care plans for physical therapistsCLEARWATER, FLORIDA (PRWEB) NOVEMBER 24, 2015

BestPT Billing and EHR Software helps their clients manage patient care plans. Their Care Plan management tool ensures that patients understand their financial commitments prior to accepting care, while practice owners standardize billing and comply with payer’s copay and coinsurance requirements.

According to Dr. Eldad De-Medonsa, bestPTs’ President and PhD in Artificial Intelligence, the effects of using automated care plans for care planning and monitoring help improve outcomes and maintain financial health of the practice. “Care plans are important because patients will not commit to care if they cannot easily understand their financial commitment. As importantly, practice owners have to stay compliant by charging, adjusting, and writing off the correct amounts. We leverage the cloud, billing experts, and Artificial Intelligence to help design the most effective practice management software,” says De-Medonsa.

Understanding Through Images and Animations

Plugging In

Will Shannon find her patient education solution in the cloud?

“Aren’t we the modern family!” Mike laughed, looking around the room. His wife was at her laptop and he was at his, their youngest daughter was playing a game on a tablet, and the other kids were texting friends on their phones. The TV was on, too, so there were more screens active than people.

Shannon looked at him doubtfully. “What do you mean?”

“Look at all these screens! We’re all plugged into our devices — together in the room, but each of us hooked up to our own electronic stuff.”

“You’re right. But I think I might have made a breakthrough on the patient education issue.” Shannon scooted closer and showed Mike her screen. “See these 3-D images and animations?”

The older kids came close to see. “Awesome!” their son said.

“It’s awesome, all right — the largest library of 3-D animations of medical conditions anywhere, and there are lots of exercise and rehab images, too.”

“So,” Mike said, “the idea is that you can show these to patients and they’ll understand their conditions better?”

“Their conditions, the treatments we want to use, the exercises they should be doing at home — everything! When they understand, they’ll be more likely to follow through.”

“Also,” their son put in, “you’ll be the coolest PT in town. They could make a game out of these.”

Shannon laughed. “They don’t have a game, but we can email them a custom report so they have the information they need at home in between visits. Plus, it’s browser-based, so we can use it all through the practice. That means we’ll all be giving them a consistent message, so there’ll be less chance of confusion — and less chance that they’ll feel they have to go somewhere else for information.”

“This is impressive,” Mike agreed. “I can see that this could be a selling point for you.”

“It’s also integrated with practice management software, so it can be part of our regular workflow, not more work for us.”

“It makes sense. This is clearly a good use of technology. Now maybe we as a family should unplug and do something together.”

Physical Therapy Software | Improve patient relationships with visual education tools

physical therapy software_3DRX-patient educationAre you worried about patient flow fluctuations at your physical therapy practice? Inconsistent patient flow results in unpredictable cash flow which puts the future of your practice in jeopardy. To avoid going out of business, you need to attack the problem at its root– patient education. You can improve your patient relationships and increase your retention rate by using more effective, visual patient education tools.

It is difficult to explain diagnosis and treatment options to patients in simple terms due to the complexity of the human body. To make matters worse, your patients only retain about seven percent of the educational health information you share with them via traditional methods. Add to this conundrum your limited time available for each patient visit and you have a recipe for low patient flow.

When patients don’t understand their health issues and prescribed care plan, they don’t return for treatment or follow your instructions. As a result, they are not getting better and they are sure to blame you.

These no-shows can also cause compliance issues for your physical therapy practice as the insurance companies can request payments back for patients who stop treatment.

You can boost your patients’ comprehension of your diagnosis and save time explaining it by using the visual 3DRX patient education software directly from the travel card. The 3D animations and videos are easy to understand and explain various conditions visually without overwhelming or confusing your patients. At the end of the visit you can quickly email the prescribed care plan with 3DRX images and instructions to your patients to ensure compliance. Once they understand what causes their discomfort and how your treatment will alleviate it, they will be much more motivated to return for their next appointments.

A patient portal as well as an option to subscribe to rehabilitation exercises provide additional opportunities to help your patients stay on track with their care plans. Last but not least, 3DRX also lets you offer Durable Medical Equipment to your patients as an additional income source.
