BetterPT Partners with Clinicient to Enhance Patient Access to Physical Therapy Services Nationwide

Sponsored by Businesswire

BetterPT™, a healthcare technology platform company providing end-to-end
digital connectivity between physical therapists (PT), patients, and
physicians, today announced a partnership agreement with Clinicient,
Inc., a leading provider of clinical and business solutions for the
outpatient rehabilitation therapy market. This partnership has resulted
in the creation and launch of an integrated solution that enables
efficient, online scheduling requests from patients directly to PT
practices, giving healthcare consumers a more convenient way to access
and select physical therapy providers based on their needs.

An often-overlooked segment in healthcare, studies have shown that
patients who seek physical therapy typically incur lower healthcare
costs and experience faster recovery than those who don’t. Through this
integration, clinics using Clinicient can capture more patients via
convenient online scheduling and gain access to a greater number of
patients looking for physical therapy. By bringing together BetterPT’s
inbound patient management (IPM) solution with Clinicient’s electronic
medical records (EMR) for outpatient therapy, patients can now search
for providers based on insurance requirements, location and
availability, and directly request an appointment at any outpatient
therapy location that interfaces with Clinicient. The integration can
also increase scheduling conversion rates, allowing for physical therapy
providers to put their focus back on patients rather than scheduling.

“We’re pleased to announce our partnership with an innovative platform
like BetterPT as our customers continue to seek out new solutions to
spread their reach and find new therapy clientele,” said T. Kent Rowe,
Chief Executive Officer, Clinicient. “This strategic integration enables
Clinicient to offer its customer base a trusted and reliable way to
capture new patients. With the expanding consumerism of the healthcare
market, we believe this will become even more important.”

“The healthcare industry has struggled for many years to implement
revolutionary and efficient digital solutions that have transformed most
other sectors in the twenty-first century,” said Greg Peter, CEO of
BetterPT. “Physical therapy is an important and oftentimes overlooked
part of clinical rehabilitation and preventive care, and with changes in
legislation that allow self-referral, this partnership with Clinicient,
as a reputable and leading EMR company, is more important than ever as
we work to enable greater connectivity and engagement between patients
and physical therapists.”
