Managing a physical therapy practice is a balancing act, though. Spending too much time on managing your staff and all the different aspects of your practice hurts your profitability. In terms of long-term profitability your practice can only grow or die. But practice growth is not possible without effective task management and an optimized workflow.
Tasks that are not done are forgotten and affect your entire practice negatively while your patients suffer. You can blame your insufficiently trained staff, but no one can perform consistently and effectively when relying exclusively on his memory. Most physical therapy software systems don’t solve this problem since they are not configured to track a provider’s unique workflow. Tracking multiple Â Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) at the same time is especially difficult for a busy and growing practice.
The Radar provides you with a snapshot of multiple Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) right on your cloud-based bestPT software home page so that you can see the big picture in one glance with the option to drill down into individual stats. In fact, each user can drill down into any portion of the Radar to access details about workflow for improved accountability and teamwork. This helps analyze any under-performing areas so that any of your staff members can take corrective actions to ensure your practice’s consistent cash flow. For example, bestPT customers use Radar to control their practice workflow with a centralized organization of tasks. Since data collection of tasks is automated by bestPT physical therapy software, they can track their staff’s task completion and increase accountability.
You may not want to use any new tools or spend time learning new skills, but effective workflow management requires training and a physical therapy software system that provides ease-of-use. No PT has time to dig up and analyze complex data in the form of difficult and boring text to compare various KPIs.
Contact your SPOC to configure your Radar so it displays Ticket backlogs and Ticket workbenches among the other KPIs. Then monitor the workflow daily and drill into the numbers to see who is struggling with any tasks. To further simplify practice workflow you can also make a checklist for any repetitive tasks.
