Physical Therapy Software Company Articles to Appear in Impact Magazine

WINNIPEG, MB--(Marketwire - June 22, 2010) -  Prognition Corp., a physical therapy software manufacturer that created the physical therapy documentation software Mavenlive, has two articles that appear in Impact Magazine's June issue.

The articles are about how structured data entry streamlines processes for physical therapists, and the benefits of customizable software, said Jay Winburn, who serves at the president of Prognition Corp.

"We were excited to have an opportunity to submit these articles to this publication," Winburn said. "Our goal was to provide helpful information for physical therapists to use when researching types of rehab software and determining which might best suit their needs."

The article about customizable software mentioned the importance of having technologies available that can change and grow at the pace of physical therapy practices.

"If you're stuck with a rigid assessment form or rigid drop-down boxes, the system doesn't allow for no organic growth of your practice," said Rickie Walkden, a physical therapist in Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada, who was quoted in the article.

A clinic that uses physical therapy electronic documentation to automate patient assessment processes must be able to easily adopt those changes into their practice because the physical therapy field changes every time new knowledge is gained, Winburn said.

"If a physical therapist sees a new exercise or a variation of an existing exercise that they believe their patients could benefit from, they should be able to easily add that into their exercise software," he said, adding that customizable software such as Mavenlive makes those changes possible.

The structured data entry article discussed the importance of entering information in a fashion that enables it to be quickly recalled and used for more than one purpose.

"This is helpful in physical therapy for tasks such as creating documentation, forms and letters where specific patient information is needed," Winburn said. "It also is useful in picking an exercise that is appropriate for a particular problem or group of problems."

Automated software has been helpful to many physical therapists because it addresses the common complaint among physical therapists that they must spend so much time trying to stay caught up on documentation and correspondence.
