saved with MedBridge HEP Integration by shaving 3-5 minutes off of every clinical visit
Since partnering with MedBridge in early 2015, Professional Physical Therapy has grown from 27 to over 140 locations while hiring new staff to meet demand. Their growing team was made up of over 60% new hires with 0-3 years of experience. They knew they would need a scalable solution for providing evidence-based training to ensure quality and consistency of care across their growing network.
Given their focus on delivering the highest quality and most efficient care using state-of-the-art equipment and techniques, Professional Physical Therapy also sought a solution that would ensure a premier and consistent experience for patients.

- Patient Engagement solutions (HEP, Patient Education, and NPS) implemented as a standard for all patients
- Integration of MedBridge HEP with Raintree EMR
- Leveraging the assistance of a dedicated account manager
