Templates: Enlist therapist to document need

April 20, 2016Reid Bellis

 Q. What do therapists think about conducting exams?A. Many physicians choose to defer to a physical or occupational therapist to conduct an appropriate mobility evaluation.I often ask PTs/OTs what they use to successfully document a comprehensive mobility exam. It seems there are five distinct answers yielding different outcomes and results.1. The therapist is not comfortable conducting a specialty mobility exam or it is not part of their regular practice.2. The therapist uses a word document...

Templates: Don't let templates scare you

February 22, 2016Reid Bellis

A. I thought the question regarding the use of templates for physician documentation was put to bed long ago. However, it seems I was wrong.In fact, the use of templates has not only been authorized by CMS, it has also cleared legal review by multiple national law firms.For now, let's review the guidance by CMS that clearly delineates the use of templates for power mobility devices.One can refer to Appendix F: Progress Notes and Forms (Definition and guidelines about tools/interfaces that assisting...

Templates: Cloud systems streamline procedures

January 25, 2016Reid Bellis

Interoperability conjures up a vision of some esoteric system straight out of Star Wars. However, it has such incredible value as to be vital in health care today.The idea of a computer cloud system that can exchange and interpret vast amounts of data almost seems unreal, yet it is being used by almost every physician and hospital electronic record system. Through meaningful use testing in the last seven years, these systems must pass information back and forth among different...

GLENDALE, Ariz. - PMDRX recently released a new physical therapy module that could help mobility providers serve their patients—and get paid—a lot quicker, says Gary Cox.“From what we understand based on feedback from suppliers, physical and occupational therapists have a pretty high documentation error rate themselves, due to omitted information and illegible handwriting,” said Cox, CEO of PMDRX.Launched in January, the new module will allow OTs and PTs to conduct functional...

October 22, 2015Letter to the Editor

An article in the September issue of HME News referenced the “standstill” status of the PMD template hung up in the Office of the National Coordinator for Health IT (“Template is at a standstill,” September 2015).Many mobility suppliers may not be aware that an electronic version has been in use for more than four years.
