We believe it would be beneficial not only for our company but all PT companies using WebPT to have some additional outcome measures added as options under the "add outcome" option in the patient profile. Adding these outcomes would allow PTs to track more data to show the benefits and successful outcomes from PT treatment and also would allow these outcomes to be entered efficiently at the front office after patient's fill out the hard copy form or automatic entry if done electronically. The following outcomes are available within the documentation but not within the "add outcome" option:
Post Concussion Symptom Scale
Modified Rivermead Post Concussion Symptoms Questionnaire
Shoulder Pain and Disability Index (SPADI)
Upper Extremity Functional Index (UEFI)
Additionally, we believe it would be beneficial to add an outcome for TMJ since it does not currently exist in WebPT both within the documentation and as an option under "add outcome". Our recommendation is to add the TMJ Disability Index. A version of this is attached.
Thank you very much for your time and dedication to helping further the field of PT and helping us to show our value through our outcomes.
