Comments: We have been using sys4PT for over 4 years. It has really simplified our doc time and increased our revenue. The transition to the new eval codes was very easy as there was plenty of support. Having billing and documentation on one platform makes your life so much easier unlike what we had before. I absolutely recommend this software.

Pros: Compliance is excellent. EMR is by far the fastest I have found.

Overall: I regularly review EMR software, as it is important that we stay on top of compliance and efficiency. When I heard about the recent eval code changes l once again reviewed every EMR to see their approach. If you've done the same you've noticed that most EMR's lay out the complex new rules and then give you multi step check lists to process. These approaches look like they will take quite a while to complete. Systems4PT's work flow was very different. After I documented the eval, their software searched for related complexities and presented them to me. I didn't have to hunt through any lists. This immediately made sense to me because in all of the systems, the complexities have been documented in the evals. It seems like a waste of time to document complexities a second time.

What attracted us to Systems4PT was their G-Code and PQRS work flow. Again, these are 80% faster than anything else we've seen. While we haven't been audited, we also don't have rejections and don't have PQRS take backs.

The more I look at other software, the more I appreciate Systems4PT

Recommendations to other buyers: It came up in conversation that of the top 3 EMR companies in OPR, Systems4PT is owned by the management team that founded the company. The other two are owned by Battery Investments and Catalyst investments. I like being able to call the owner.

Pros: It has transformed me from behind and under paid to under control and profitable

Cons: Android

Overall: Have used S4 for a year and a half. With it we have increased our treatments per therapist by 1.2 visits per day because documentation time is faster. We have increased our collections per claim from $84 to $92. And for the first time since owning y practice I can track profit. So far we are up 8% with profit this year. My goal is 15% profit and I am following 3 goals to get there. I like that S4s consulting is free.

Back to my title. Have we fallen off line? Yes. Was it S4's fault? I dunno. Have we needed to update a scanner? Yes. Have these things happened with our other softwares? Of course. Let's all say it together! Computers suck! The internet sucks! Healthcare reform sucks! But amidst all this suckyness we're doing better than ever. And as I speak with colleagues and hear their problems I tell them that I'm in a better place than I've been for several years. That's perspective.

Recommendations to other buyers: I didn't believe the claims either until I saw it happen.

Pros: MUCH faster documentation. Reports let me track profit. Before I don't think I was making profit.

Cons: I'd like to meet them.

Overall: WebPT was VERY slow, so we searched for faster EMR. Systems4PT is much faster. We have eliminated our PQRS problem. We failed PQRS with WebPT and passed since using Systems4PT

Recommendations to other buyers: I'm not a fan of EMR. They're all full of hype. This one delivers the most, in my opinion.

Pros: Work lists, scanning, payer rules

Cons: Would like more colors

Overall: Work lists are a lifesaver. Every fd task is listed for us. We used to waste a lot of time on this.

Payer rules make sense. Our collections went up since installing. Wile the staff sometimes complains, I love that the system doesn't let anyone sign off unless the payers rules are followed.

Scanning is very strong. Our prior system scanned to the desktop and we dragged the files to the patient's folder. It was scary easy to drop the files in the wrong patient's folder. S4 scans directly into the patient's chart. No way to make that mistake.

I like that my staff can't log in from home if i dont want them to. Obviously PT's need to, but my old system let anyone log in from any computer. I had part time staff logging in from God knows where and I couldn't stop it. S4 let's us control who can log in from outside the practice.

We want more colors on the schedule. They say that's coming.

Overall, a great system for us. I'm glad we upgraded.

Recommendations to other buyers: Works well for us

Pros: I hate computers, but I can live with this one

Cons: Does not work with XP. We had to buy new computers.

Overall: Love their help desk and that you don't have to wait on hold.
Love that the computer does gcodes and pqrs for us.
Love that they imported our evaluation templates. Using our own Evals made switching from paper to computer much easier.

Recommendations to other buyers: We are happy

Pros: When the topic of EMR comes up with colleagues, I tell them my documentation is much faster, the computer sorts out gcode and PQRS rules and the computer won't let us submit claims unless they pass the payers rules. I spend my time treating. I spend less time charting today, than I did 5 years ago. I've never heard of another software that does the same.

Cons: Some of the graphics look dated, which I don't really understand. How can you be sooo high tech, but use old looking graphics?

Overall: We are a small practice with 3 therapists. Systems4PT is our 3rd EMR . The first two were prohibitively slow, which is why we changed. Particularly with Medicare, we found ourselves spending a lot of time on gcodes and PQRS (and the PQRS failed). Systems4PT covers these topics for us, automatically. Reimbursements is a second strong point. Payments are much more consistent, week to week than before. We are two years on the software, reimbursements are over 10% higher than prior. Support is great. I can only relate to our prior 2 EMRs, but Systems4PT answers the phone faster then either of them.

Recommendations to other buyers: Do what I did. Just ask for the documentation trial. To me, if the EMR is faster, better, etc. it should be obvious when you use it. I've used 2 systems prior and have tried several others. This one stands out.

Pros: HIPAA Compliant

Cons: SO SLOW AND GLITCHY - It kicks you out constantly because they use a horrible server. Problems connecting to printer, etc.

Overall: This System barely holds up for our small outpatient physical therapy clinic. It gives us trouble daily.

Recommendations to other buyers: Don't buy it.

Pros: I kept my eye on Systems4PT for several years before I opened my practice. I also knew of several successful practices that had gone with them. The capabilities that they had were all inclusive and did everything I needed. Two years later, and I can honestly say that the system has served us well. It has everything my office needs. During this time, healthcare has changed a lot. Each time when Systems4PT responded to new rules or requirements, they did it in ways that don't burden (i.e. slow down) the therapist.

Cons: It isn't pretty. I mean literally. The cosmetics are not pretty. There is constant change. It is annoying, but necessary to keep up with the rapid healthcare changes. There are some bugs, but the fix is always soon to follow. Again, if a bug causes you to not get paid then neither does S4PT, so they are very responsive to problems. If you want beautiful, look elsewhere. If you want to make sure you get the reimbursement that you deserve for busting your hump, then check out Systems4PT.

Recommendations to other buyers: I looked at every system in the industry. If EMR is not integrated in the same database as billing, forget about it. I know people who complain about not being paid, the EMR blames the billing system. The billing system blames the EMR. Systems4PT is one integrated system, including billing.

Pros: There are several features offered that my clinic has benefited from. The most effective feature is that once Therapist and Front Desk documentation is completed, S4PT will prepare the claim, add any modifiers, and electronically submit through the clearinghouse. There is no need for additional keying or review of the claim before it goes out. In addition, the system allows us to follow the claim until it is accepted by the payer. This feature is truly efficient and effective. The turnaround time for payment is shortened. Rejections from the payer are quickly identified, allowing follow up within a week or two from the treatment date. S4PT also includes scheduling. The automation of identifying patient co-pay or any balance to their account. Color codes in the schedule allow the clerical staff to identify when the data entry and documentation is completed and the claim is ready to process. We also have the ability to customize the schedule to fit the availability of providers.

Cons: S4PT has always been receptive to new ideas or suggestions for improvement from their customers. Although I am very happy with their program, as with anything or anyone, there is always room for improvement. A couple of features I think would enhance their system: The therapist daily treatment schedule could follow the same color coding as on the front desk. S4PT has a fax feature. Confirmation the document has been faxed is listed directly on the documentation with the exception of the evaluation. I would like to see this corrected.

Recommendations to other buyers: Document a full evaluation yourself on any system that you are seriously considering.

Pros: The system allows us to spend more time treating our patients and less time trying to figure out how to bill correctly with all the different insurances. S4PT has built all of this into their system and prevents you from making costly errors.

Cons: Documentation auto copies from one note to the next. Still, my wish would be for more cut and paste

Recommendations to other buyers: Talk to them. They did a great job in the beginning explaining the system to me and were able to answer all of my questions. I never felt pressured, and they took a lot of time to make sure I understood everything.

Pros: Systems4PT is by far the most advanced EMR out there. I checked out multiple vendors before choosing them three years ago and haven't regretted my decision. By coupling documentation and billing, I am able to focus on what I truly enjoy: treating patients.

Cons: No real gripes. I can call the President or VP anytime if I have an issue.

Recommendations to other buyers: Notice that other EMR demos don't demonstrate an entire evaluation (because it would take too long). S4PT shows you an entire eval in four minutes. Notice that Systems4PT's G-codes and defensive documentation are faster and more user-friendly than any other approach. Document some notes from other systems, and then try Systems4PT; you'll see which is faster.
