Tablet PC Software Application for Physical Therapy Released

Posted Apr 09 2009 6:21pm 1 Comment

Everybody is mobile today in healthcare and physical therapists are no exception, some work in offices, some travel to homes or various offices, so having all your medical records together on a tool, like a tablet pc, where you can be working directly with a patient would be invaluable 

With a tablet, you can easily be watching, instructing, etc. the patient, and entering data as you go along.  The screens work both on a UMPC (small tablet) as well as a larger screen, so your choice of tablets is open. 

The software will do billing for you to create a 1500 form to upload to a clearinghouse.  All data is stored in either SQL Server or MS Access (sdk for developers) so there’s some opportunities here for integration as well.  As a matter of fact, inking forms from Active Ink have been incorporated into other medical systems as part of the overall package.  I see this as a perfect solution for the physical therapist on the move and having one tool and the software to do the entire job.  If you don’t want to write, you can also use speech recognition too.  BD 

Press Release:

Active Ink Software Launches Tablet PC Application for Physical Therapistsimage

Laguna Niguel, CA April 09, 2009 –

Active Ink Software, Inc. announces the

release of Active PT, a practice

management solution for physical

therapists. Active PT manages the

interaction between the physical therapist

and the patient by documenting the encounter

and saving the physical therapist

hours of data input.

Active PT takes advantage of touch screen interfaces such as the tablet PC and other mobile computing devices while enhancing the therapist-patient experience. It integrates the scheduling, documentation, and billing processes into a complete records management solution.

Appointments, daily notes, and insurance claims are processed and managed much more efficiently saving the physical therapist time and money.

Active PT includes the following features: Pre-Built Templates, Customizable Forms, Pen Data

Entry, Handwriting Recognition, Voice Dictation, Patient Scheduler, Electronic Charting,

Email/Fax Transmission, Electronic Billing and Payment Processor Integration.

Included are a set of templates to help you document the encounter. If these templates don’t fit

your needs, you can easily create your own to suit your own specifications. Active PT makes

incorporating drawings, voice recordings, pictures, and videos into the patient’s chart a breeze.

Active Ink Software creates Smart Form Solutions for both the PC and Tablet PC markets. Our

Smart Form Solutions enable us to capture and store data in a digital format which results in

reduced operational costs by eliminating paper and simplifying data entry.

So is this <gt; something that is going to be used by the physical therapist, or should this be a concern for physical therapists losing jobs because of this software?
