If you are anxious about the new compliance standards effective Oct.1, 2014, fret not. You can rest assured that bestPT’s xDocs will automatically be updated with all required codes to make it easy for you to stay compliant. Also keep in mind that your paper forms will be pretty much obsolete. In other words, you won’t get paid at all if you submit paper forms after Oct.1 of next year.
“Our experience with setting up and using xDocs has been great. The team took my original document and was able to transform it into a functional document that we could easily access and use through the system. I was impressed with how quickly they were able to initially make the document. I was also equally impressed at how patient they were with me as we used the document and needed to make adjustments. They did so each time and made sure it was exactly what we wanted. We are looking into the possibilities of streamlining other documents into xDocs now.”

And since patient relationships are at the heart of your physical therapy business, xDocs have also been designed to help you turn your patients into raving fans. You can make a good impression by letting your patients use the xDocs Kiosk to check in for their appointments. Instead of filling out endless intake forms by hand your patients will only need to submit their info once. Our cloud based bestPT physical therapy software system saves everything instantly for secure storage and convenient access at any time of the day or night. You can further strengthen your bond with your patients by sending them their individual care plans through xDocs as email or PDF.
Here are 5 different ways you can use xDocs in your physical therapy practice:
1. Have patients fill out their intake forms at practice’s patient kiosk
2. Complete forms with patient while still table side
3. Provide alternative documentation to original platform:
- PT notes
- PT xDoc package was developed by PTs and Medicare compliance officers
4. Insurance verification forms
5. Care Plan communication to patients
Although xDocs offers a multitude of useful features for completing a variety of physical therapy billing and documentation tasks at your practice, it is easy to use pretty much ‘right out of the box’ and only requires minimal training. And unlike buying expensive physical therapy billing software, xDocs are already included in bestPT’s cloud based system at no extra charge and don’t require installation on your PC. Contact your SPOC to request xDocs access for your account.
