WRS Health Realeases New EHR and Practice Management Solutions For Physical Therapy Practices

GOSHEN, N.Y. (January 6, 2014) – WRS Health, a leading provider of cloud-based integrated electronic medical record and practice management solutions, announced today a suite of cloud-based EHR, practice management, and patient communication services designed specifically for Physical Therapists and physical medicine practices.

“WRS Health offers award-winning EHR software for a number of medical and surgical specialties,” said Lawrence Gordon, MD, founder and CEO of WRS Health. “Physical Therapists have unique EHR needs and can utilize our customizable templates, patient portal, marketing services and a host of other business solutions to best optimize their physical medicine practices.”

WRS Health Physical Therapy EHR content permits the Physical Therapist to easily chart an encounter. Many patient encounters do not conform to a defined “template” and it is important to be able to quickly and comfortably chart. You will find your expected Physical Medicine-specific physical exam findings already loaded in your note, such as musculoskeletal examinations for sports team physicals. Similarly, for the Physical Medicine Review of Systems you will find PT-relevant complaints and symptoms and comes with Physical Therapy specific content already loaded in the encounter notes. When you complete a chart for an upper limb tension test (ULTT), Yergason's Test, or a knee exam, intelligent templates enable you to quickly chart out the encounter with one-click. WRS Health Physical Therapy EHR has a full library of templates that can be incorporated into your practice and edited to suit your practice style.

Physical Medicine Questionnaires, Pain Assessments and other types of documentation, such as Family history can be filled out by the patient in the waiting room with the WRS Digital Pen. The data from these patient forms then flows seamlessly into your note without requiring the user to re-key data from the patient forms. We make this available to you in a variety of types of patient encounters. If you have your own Physical Therapy customized forms that you developed, we are able to take your own forms and have the data flow into the WRS cloud-based EHR with the digital pen.

All your data can sit on one platform without the need to export or import, or cut and paste data or documents.

The WRS Digital Pen Solution is also a perfect solution for specialties that rely on forms or free text for most of their charting needs. Patient consent forms, questionnaires and signatures can be captured easily using this technology. You can even chart with different colors.

Additionally,  the new WRS Health Physical Therapy EHR Workflow System provides a Consent Management feature. The cloud-based EHR system also includes automatic appointment reminders and instructions sent via phone/email/text. The Order Tracking system tracks all orders issued from the WRS Health Physical Medicine EHR electronically through the entire order life-cycle, helping relieve the burden of tracking orders that have not been obtained by the patient or have not been received by the office.

Because this is all performed electronically the results are integrated with the patient's chart. No more attaching paper faxes to paper charts and placing them in a stack on your desk to review at the end of the day. Find results quickly, efficiently and view them online.

WRS Health Physical Therapy EHR makes sure proper and complete reimbursement is received for all the practice services provided. Additionally, the WRS Health Physical Therapy EHR provides automatic eligibility checking of your patients, saving time and money. Based upon the scheduled appointment date all patients are automatically checked for up-to-date insurance and demographic data. This is accomplished by electronic connections to  insurance companies with automatic messages sent starting 72 hours before the appointments.
