Electronic Documentation Software for Rehab

March 9, 2009 · Posted in Documentation · Comment 

A recent article in Physical Therapy Products, titled “Electronic Efficiency: Using software for business and treatment solutions” and written by Nina Silberstein, covers stories of four therapists that are using electronic therapy documentation software. 

Among the therapists featured was Tracie Rodak, PT, who works for Spartanburg Regional, a large not-for-profit hospital in South Carolina that is a customer of Chart Links’ therapy documentation software.  Tracie is the manager of the outpatient pediatric rehabilitation program and treats the special needs population that includes childres with cerebral palsy, Down syndrome and autism.

When asked about the software’s capabilities for managers who want to track productivity, Tracie had this to say:

“…when a patient is checked in, our therapists automatically get a notification that says the patient is here.  It creates an incomplete note and charge ticket.  [The therapists] are constantly working down their lists [of how many notes they have left and how many evals and plans of care are due daily].  Technically, they can’t sign a file unless they’ve done all the parts.  The nice thing is that they can’t sign the note and forget to bill.  The system won’t let it happen.  As a manager, I can see everyone’s incomplete notes, where before, I wouldn’t have any idea unless there was a problem.  I’m able to manage better.”
