Skilled Physical Therapy Documentation – In Touch EMR Vs
OptimisPT Physical Therapy Software
Most In Touch EMR users have switched over to us from another physical therapy EMR. At a
given time, hundreds of physical therapists are in touch with our sales team, as they deliberate
between In Touch EMR and other vendors.
We have a great deal of respect for our competitors and, in the end, want to work with clients
whom we are best suited for. The good news is - there are a lot of emr and billing software
choices, and most of them are really good products.
We were recently the subject of an article on physical therapy software comparisons, where
we were compared to another product, OptimisPT Physical Therapy Software. This fair and
in-depth analysis illustrated the power of both products, but inevitably showcased why In Touch
EMR has rapidly emerged as the trusted leader in physical therapy documentation in 2016.
Data, Compliance and Security
In Touch EMR is certified by ICSA Labs, an Office of the
National Coordinator - Authorized Certification Body (ONC-
ACB) and is compliant and in accordance with applicable
criteria adopted by the Secretary of Health and Human Services
As far as we can tell, other products like OptimisPT physical
therapy software also use high-quality security protocols and
take necessary back-ups of data, but others have not gone
through the rigorous testing and security and compliance
checks that In Touch EMR has.
In Touch EMR is one of the few vendors in the rehabilitation space to be listed on the Certified
Health IT Product List. OptimisPT physical therapy offers data backups, but nothing to match
the level of protocols and security procedures required for certification by the Federal office of
the National Coordinator for Health Information Technology.
No other vendor can make this claim, and they generally won't bring this up (in some cases, out
of ignorance) mostly because this is not a mandatory certification, it is optional and requires a
significant investment of time and effort. This certification is a sign of our commitment to a
HIPAA compliant, secure and stable EMR system for your clinic.
If you ever get audited, the fact that you are using ONC-certified EHR technology (CEHRT) will
work in your favor. CMS looks favorably on the use of CEHRT since HHS is trying to encourage
the adoption of CEHRT amongs providers nationwide as part of a long term push towards
electronic documentation and interoperability between EMR systems. Your practice can state
that it carefully vetted and selected "a rehabilitation-specific vendor that passed all of the ONC
HIT 2014 Edition EHR Certification criteria required to satisfy the Base EHR definition"
Since In Touch EMR has been very proactive at staying at the forefront of emerging guidelines
for EMR vendors, you are assured higher quality, higher security and more compliance with
CMS and other payer regulations.

you pay $49 per month per provider. This also includes some fantastic features such as
