WebPT’s EMR System Now Integrates with Top Medical Billing Software and Service Providers
MARCH 10, 2011
PHOENIX–(BUSINESS WIRE)–WebPT, a Web-based electronic medical records system (EMR) for physical therapists, announces a new Certified Billing Partner program. WebPT is officially launching the program today with two of the industry’s most widely used physical therapy billing solutions, Kareo and BMS. WebPT has already made electronic PT documentation easier, more affordable, and more efficient for today’s mobile PT. The integration of its fully Web-based EMR system with these popular billing solutions means smoother, more efficient billing processes for PT clinics.
“Our customers have told us repeatedly that having WebPT integrate with their billing would make operations much easier and speed up the collections process,” said Heidi Jannenga, PT, MPT, co-founder and COO for WebPT. “Our new billing partnerships enable us to deliver more efficiency to our customers as well as provide an integrated solution that we couldn’t offer before.”
WebPT has grown significantly in the past three years, showing a 300 percent total growth in 2010. Current customers expressed the need to integrate WebPT with their existing billing software and service providers, and WebPT has delivered. “Our Certified Billing Partner program allows WebPT customers the freedom to select from the best billing service providers and billing software solutions on the market today. We are proud to partner with Kareo and BMS, two established leaders in serving the needs of the physical therapy industry,” added Paul Winandy, CEO of WebPT. The company plans to add additional partners throughout 2011.
Kareo provides an easy-to-use, Web-based medical billing software that’s one of the most well known in the PT market. Kareo chose to partner with WebPT because of the application’s leading market share, Web-based model, and how it successfully meets the needs of the therapy market. “It’s hard enough for clinics to move to an electronic system and show meaningful use. It’s up to us, as the vendors, to make it easier for them. Creating billing systems that are simple and easy to learn is one aspect, integrating those with EMR systems like WebPT is the next,” said Dan Rodrigues, CEO of Kareo. “Kareo’s integration with WebPT enables physical therapists to seamlessly manage the entire clinical and financial workflow of their clinics. It’s our pleasure to bring this integration to our customers and WebPT’s, to make their operations more hassle-free.”
BMS is dedicated to providing premium revenue cycle management and billing and collection services specifically for rehabilitation practices. BMS CEO John Wallace says of the partnership, “We are confident that the practices that use WebPT’s Certified Billing Partner program will see the benefits of a complete, well-integrated billing platform. Through this partnership we are now able to offer the strength of an easy to use, PT-centric EMR system combined with a proven billing service that is already utilized by a large portion of the therapy industry.”
WebPT Certified Billing Partners are approved billing software and services vendors with integration to WebPT’s fully Web-based EMR system. WebPT’s engineers have worked directly with these vendors to build, test and certify the technical integration between systems for a superior offering customers can count on.
