An EMR System Designed for the Way Physical Therapists Work

Although physical therapists are not yet required to use electronic medical records, physicians and other health care systems participating in the Medicare Meaningful Use Program are expected to use electronic health records by 2015. Those health care providers will then expect physical therapists to use compatible systems.  To help address the electronic medical record needs of physical therapists, WebPT was developed. The founder and COO of WebPT, Heidi Jannenga, PT, MPT, ATC/L joins PT Talker to share some information about their EMR system.
