Improve Patient Care with Telehealth

As with so much else in the digital age, our wearable fitness trackers already have the capability to transmit hundreds of thousands of bytes of data—from how we’re sleeping and how many steps we’re walking to our heart rates while we’re doing one or the other!

This constant source of information via bits and bytes, as well as the prevalence of telecommunication technology and channels, is now merging into an industry called Telehealth. It’s the next logical step in a healthcare evolution that’s moving beyond traditional offices and clinics and into people’s homes.

Telehealth is more than just wearable fitness trackers. In fact, those fitness trackers aren’t necessary to a good telehealth program. So, don’t worry if you’re one of those people who doesn’t like counting steps. Telehealth is still for you.

In fact, PtEverywhere just launched the Telehealth feature of our PT Practice management tool, and here’s why we think it’s important for your clinic and your patients.

According to a recent study by Research and Markets, the U.S. telehealth market is expected to grow by 27% over the next six years. That’s significant. But what does it mean?

Telehealth utilizes technology to enable remote patient and clinician contact, including care, advice, reminders, education, intervention, monitoring and remote admissions. There’s also opportunity for distance-learning meetings and presentations. Telehealth could include clinicians discussing a case over video conference; a robotic surgery occurring through remote access; physical therapy done via digital monitoring and home monitoring through continuous sending of patient health data; client to practitioner online conference; or even videophone conversations during a consult or follow-up appointment.

By its very nature, telehealth is a patient-centric, outcomes-based model because patients and providers can connect much more efficiently, conveniently and economically. Removing the stress of office visits also helps patients relax and can encourage them to be more invested in their own health.

That’s why PtEverywhere is so proud of our Telehealth feature. We pride ourselves on our commitment to patient-centric care that puts outcomes before insurance fees. Our Telehealth sessions utilize technology to help you maximize your clinic time and put your patients’ progress at the center of your practice. Now you can connect with your patients in a secure, HIPAA-compliant environment, as well as share files, scans, videos, and more. Try it, and you’ll see that our Telehealth feature is just one more piece of a very important puzzle that’s helping to put patient care back in healthcare.

Patient Care Plan with Packages and Memberships

Sell and Track a Complete Plan of Care with Packages and Memberships

When patients understand your value, they will financially commit to your plan of care


PtEverywhere proudly enables customers to sell and track packages and memberships. In addition to Scheduling, Documentation, Payment Processing, Home Exercise Videos, Online Forms, and Messaging, we continue our efforts to deliver a complete, mobile solution to cash-based physical therapy.

“Physical therapists are increasingly offering packages or action plans to their patients,” said Jonathan Davis, PtEverywhere’s Director of Sales and Marketing. “PtEverywhere allows you to sell a pre-purchased number of sessions online, track the remaining sessions, and apply the initial purchase to a superbill for each individual visit. You can also set up recurring payments through the memberships feature.”

Patients cannot achieve their goals overnight, so it is important to share your plan and earn patients’ buy-in. Regardless of the complexity of the case, you can now clearly define the financial commitment required to reach those goals. By offering packages or memberships, you are setting expectations and greatly reducing the likelihood of patient drop-off.

Jeff Vajay, owner of Smart Athlete Physiotherapy, explains: “We do best when we sell plan of care packages. This creates more buy-in from patients and a stronger commitment toward achieving their goals. Each time patients are checked out in PtEverywhere, the invoice applies what they paid per session and provides a breakdown of CPT unit pricing. This is key because an advance purchase can often create accounting nightmares when giving patients superbills to submit for reimbursement. PtEverywhere handles all of that and tracks how many sessions are left. This gives me more time and energy to focus on patient care.”

CardConnect Co-Webinar

RALEIGH, NC, October 26, 2018 – Tom Cooley, Founder of GoCardConnect, joined PtEverywhere’s Jonathan Davis in a webinar to announce the company’s new partnership. PtEverywhere is now integrated with CardConnect for secure payments.

In this webinar, Jonathan presents the features of PtEverywhere and reveals the company’s integration relationship with CardConnect. Continuing PtEverywhere’s theme of both simplifying and enhancing the physical therapy patient experience, providers can securely store a patient’s “card on file” and process payments on the web or on the PtEverwhere app. Superbills are then automatically generated and sent to the patient’s portal.

Tom explained, “Most practices are growing. They want to grow; and in order to grow effectively, they need the tools in order to help them facilitate that growth. So that means automation. That means some other different functions that run their practice: their EMR, their Scheduling, their Messaging. Everything needs to be ultimately tied together. PtEverywhere was a great partner. It was a great solution by all sides.”

Jonathan added, “CardConnect has an incredible reputation throughout the physical therapy community, so our partnership makes perfect sense. Since Day One, PtEverywhere has been laser-focused on saving time and saving money for PT providers. We like to say, “Save your patience for your patients,” and this partnership enhances your ability to do more of that.”

WINSTON-SALEM, NC, October 13, 2018 – PtEverywhere is delighted to announce a sponsorship role with Winston-Salem State University’s Department of Physical Therapy. This year’s sponsorship benefits both the WSSU Professional Development Fund and the MSFit Foundation.

“Our mission with PtEverywhere is to advance the physical therapy profession, and a vital part of that is supporting the next generation of physical therapists,” said Jonathan Davis, Marketing Director at PtEverywhere. “In addition to the WSSU Department of Physical Therapy Professional Development Fund, we are also supporting the Multiple Sclerosis Fit Foundation – which provides free fitness and wellness programs to our neighbors dealing with the most common disabling neurological disease of young adults in our country.”

Ver 2.0 Released with UI Improvements and New Features

PtEverywhere Delivers a Deeper Physical Therapy Experience with Version 2.0

Streamline client communications, ensure patient compliance, and reduce overhead – all from one mobile, cross-platform solution

RALEIGH, NC, September 10, 2018 – PtEverywhere, the all-in-one physical therapy practice management software system revolutionizing the way providers and patients work together both inside and outside of the clinic, today announced the release of Version 2.0. Offering the next wave in patient care, PtEverywhere’s mobile application allows physical therapists and patients to communicate from wherever they are, from any device. Version 2.0 is now available to the public both on the web and on their mobile app at Google Play and the App Store.

Following an extensive customer focus group study, PtEverywhere delved in to attack the pain points that physical therapy providers and patients each experience. With PtEverywhere, patients can now schedule appointments, view their prescribed exercise videos, and pay their bill while “on the go.” Providers can manage all areas of their business while outside of the office and away from their computer – including scheduling and documentation. This creates more time, greater flexibility, and stronger connectivity for both physical therapists and patients.

“Every idea starts with a problem. Ours was simple: administrative tasks and insurance limitations were dictating our physical therapy practice. We wanted patients to have better outcomes, with innovative therapies and interactive dialogue, and we wanted a better way to run our clinic and a more effective way to connect with patients once they left the clinic,” said Jeff Vajay, PT, Product Owner at PtEverywhere.

As the only PT practice management tool with full functionality on mobile apps, PtEverywhere is truly the all-in-one stop for non-traditional, cash-based therapists and their patients. “We can communicate, monitor, and ensure compliance all through the app,” said Vajay. “I have the benefits of a one-on-one relationship with my clients, combined with the convenience of technology. I can now communicate with patients, check in on their progress, answer questions, send video of new exercises, and ensure compliance quickly outside of patient appointment times. This app helps ensure maximum results with minimum costs.”


The new PtEverywhere app features:

● An innovative physical therapy experience and customizable appointment alerts: interact, share, and ensure patient compliance like never before.

● Enhanced Electronic Medical Records tool with quick, simple, accurate, and HIPAA-compliant patient documentation all in one easily accessible place. Voice dictation allows for easy documentation from anywhere.

● An integrated payment solution through CardConnect that allows you to collect mobile payments, auto-send superbills to patients, and securely store payment information for future appointments.

● An extensive video library of home exercises with the ability to create and customize your own exercise protocols specifically for patients or for common injuries treated. The app reminds patients about their prescribed exercises and instructs them to mark “complete” when finished, so providers can see patients’ progress.

RETAIN Patients with PtEverywhere

In PtEverywhere, when the patient can see their exercises and they can see their compliance of their exercises, they can start to track their subjectives, such as pain.

And they can look back at that, and reference that – as well as, their provider can.

They start to see the trend, and they can take more active role in progressing, as well.

The better that your patients understand this picture of what’s going on, the more likely they’re going to stay a patient of yours.

MOTIVATE Patients with PtEverywhere

It is also crucial for maximizing your appointment calendar; and ultimately, your practice’s bottom line.

With proper communication, inspiring clients to achieve their goals can be possible.

We’ve all struggled with patients that aren’t diligent with their home exercise program or have canceled appointments before achieving the results that they wanted.

With PtEverywhere, you can motivate the patient to stick with their prescribed programs through our compliance reports; and allow them to track their progress over time with their Health Tracker.

Pop-up notifications will encourage and remind patients to complete rehab programs, record subjectives, and continue working with you to reach their goals.

CONNECT Patients with PtEverywhere

What we’re really trying to do is get a better picture of what the patient does during their everyday life and get a snapshot of what they look like for that day and for that week.

As a provider, a lot of times, we ask patients questions of what they’ve been doing, but we don’t necessarily get the whole picture. So with PtEverywhere, we’ve provided that ability. They can write down what they’re doing in their daily calendar. They can measure what they’re doing with their “Subjectives” (Daily Health Tracker).

Then, as a provider, before they even come in, I have the ability to see what they’ve done for that past week, or for that past day, or for that past month – however long that’s been.

PtEverywhere helps to stimulate some of the questions that I have for my patients. It also helps me to get a better picture of the workload that the patient is doing. Once that happens, it’s easier for me to treat that patient and prescribe what needs to be done.

ATTRACT Patients with PtEverywhere

As a former clinic manager and current owner of a cash based physical therapy practice, a major stressor that kept me up at night was bringing in new clients. A lot of times, we have to be creative. We go out and do talks. We answer questions. We do lectures.

PtEverywhere can help with this by providing the ability to get that content to the people at the lecture or at the event. You can quickly and easily upload videos of treatment techniques and exercises and give them to prospective new clients through the PtE app. It also gets their contact information and puts them into our system, so you have a better chance for them to become a patient of yours in the future.
