Alliance Physical Therapy Partners Launches Outpatient Therapy EMR Software

By | Press Releases

AgileEMR™ provides affordable option for PT, OT, SLP clinics of all sizes

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich February 2, 2021 Alliance Physical Therapy Partners (AlliancePTP), operators of Agile Virtual Care and a leading provider of therapy solutions and injury prevention services, announced today the launch of a comprehensive electronic medical record (EMR) platform named AgileEMR™.

Designed with simplicity in mind and specifically for outpatient therapy practitioners, the cloud-based solution was created, designed and developed by therapists, for therapists.

Having been successfully implemented and used at AlliancePTP clinics for more than a decade, the software is now being made available to all outpatient therapy practitioners working in any size outpatient business or hospital-based rehabilitation department. AgileEMR can bring together all the necessary elements of documentation, compliance, billing and care coordination into one comprehensive platform.

“After more than 10 years of development and over one million patient accounts created, AgileEMR offers clinicians a compliant and user-friendly option that is one of the most customizable rehabilitation patient management solutions in the industry,” said Richard Leaver, Chief Executive Officer of AlliancePTP. “AgileEMR is a proven low-cost solution to help clinics and rehabilitation departments control expenses.”

In addition to making life easier for clinical staff through benefits like remote access, simplified scheduling and seamless billing functions, AgileEMR developers embedded the highest levels of security available for the safety of patient data.

The solution has features geared toward automated patient journey workflows, template management, fully integrated billing, practice management, clerical and clinical work queues, auto-fax capabilities, MIPS reporting, financial analytics, and customizable business intelligence reporting.

AgileEMR offers ample customization options—including the ability to set unique permissions for each type of user—and can improve efficiency and eliminate lost revenue through a design that allows users to easily navigate the system without wasting valuable time.

While AgileEMR incorporates the foundational components that clinicians need to efficiently run their practices through a central platform, it’s flexible enough to integrate with third-party offerings to enhance the patient experience and operational effectiveness.

From demo to implementation and ongoing use, AgileEMR’s staff is committed to working with its partners to ensure the software is best organized to meet user needs. A dedicated support team is also available to ensure any questions are answered promptly.

AgileEMR’s pricing structure is transparent, fixed and easy to understand. The solution has no sign-up fee or long-term contracts, along with standard partner pricing. A pricing promise helps plan for the future, locking in the fixed rate for an extended period.

“AgileEMR is on a mission to make things easy for the sole practitioner, multi-site practices and everyone in between,” Leaver said.

A video featuring Leaver further discussing the benefits of the AgileEMR platform can be found here. Clinic leadership or practitioners interested in learning more about AgileEMR can request a free demo of the platform and start a free 30-day trial by visiting AgileTherapyEMR.com.

Agile Virtual Care to Offer Online Evidence-based Physical Therapy Treatment

By | Press Releases

GRAND RAPIDS, Mich – October 27, 2020 –

Agile Virtual Care, a comprehensive telehealth solution that makes physical therapy convenient and safely accessible, announced today the launch of its virtual physical therapy services. Headquartered in Grand Rapids, Michigan, but equipped to serve patients throughout the country, Agile Virtual Care will begin taking appointments immediately.

Created by physical therapists and powered by HIPAA-compliant video communications, the Agile Virtual Care platform was designed to help people with a variety of musculoskeletal injuries or limitations. Patients in search of a way to recover, feel better, up their game or discover how to improve their health and well-being can now receive evidence-based treatment plans from licensed physical therapists without ever leaving the house.

“The world around us is changing at a rapid pace, and so is our preference for how, where and when we choose health care,” said Richard Leaver, Chief Executive Officer of Alliance Physical Therapy Partners, a leading network of outpatient physical therapy clinics and operators of Agile Virtual Care. “As people, we tend to crave convenience and quality, and we believe that the service we’re providing—top-notch care from licensed physical therapists paired with the comforts of home—will both resonate with patients and help them to reach their goals.”

Because of Agile Virtual Care’s modern approach to physical therapy, patients no longer have to rely on treatment plans they uncover on their own by performing internet searches—nor do they have to get in a car or take crowded public transit to reach a facility.

Patients undergo an initial video consultation with a licensed physical therapist, where the discussion is centered on how the injury or situation took place, any pain or barriers they are experiencing, and the patient’s goals for recovery. That same physical therapist will then design a customized treatment plan and visit with the patient for every follow-up as they collaboratively work toward reaching the patient’s objectives.

Treatment plans and video tutorials of the proposed exercises are accessible at all times in the patient’s self-service web portal. The ability for the patient to have regular dialogue with their specific physical therapist between formal visits is also available, a feature that grows in importance as the patient progresses through the plan and begins to see success or encounters pain or discomfort.

Virtual physical therapy can treat the same conditions brick-and-mortar clinics address, including aches and pains of the neck, back and joints; injuries like sprains and strains; chronic conditions; women’s health matters like those related to the pelvic floor and post-pregnancy; and athletic conditioning.

In some cases, virtual physical therapy can even help patients avoid costly trips to urgent care and ER facilities where insurance coverage may be less favorable and where patients may be subject to unnecessary and expensive testing and treatments.

A case study conducted by Alliance Physical Therapy Partners in concert with Agile Virtual Care’s technology partner, MedBridge, found a number of patient benefits that favor the use of virtual physical therapy or a hybrid mix of virtual and in-clinic appointments as an alternative to exclusively in-clinic visits.

According to the study, the average wait time for telehealth visits is 60% faster than for in-person appointments, and the service has reduced the total number of patient visits needed per episode of care by 32%.

Patients who received a hybrid mix of virtual care and in-person visits saw a decrease in cost by 47%, while 93% of those patients experienced a decrease in pain and 98% reportedly made functional progress. That same study found an average Net Promoter Score (NPS) of 86, which is considered world-class.

Patients located in areas where an Alliance Physical Therapy Partners clinic exists have the ability to utilize that hybrid option, seeing the same licensed physical therapist at visits both online and in-clinic.

Agile Virtual Care works with most insurance providers, though a self-pay rate is also available for patients who lack coverage or elect not to use it, and a referral from a provider is not typically necessary. The company is also considering adding services beyond just physical therapy and into more holistic health care, including wellness and weight management.

“Whether it’s your neck, back, knee, shoulder or any other part of your body, dealing with pain is no way to live your life,” Leaver said. “Agile Virtual Care focuses on the type of long-term independence and pain-free function that can get you back to doing the things you love.”
