The future of physical therapy
Better Patient OutcomesHIGHER INSURANCE PAYMENTS

USING DIAGNOSTIC TESTING AND BILLING DIAGNOSTIC CODES INCREASES INSURANCE PAYMENTS WHILE PROVIDING BETTER PATIENT RESULTS

Better Patient Outcomes

MORE PRECISE TREATMENT

The more you understand the underlying cause of a patient’s condition, the better your treatment plan will be. With accurate diagnostic tests, you can create precise, evidence-based treatments that provide an exact therapeutic approach for each patient and result in better outcomes.

Higher per-patient Return

MORE SERVICES PER PATIENT

Insurance companies reimburse for PT services at very specific rates. National PT averages range from $70 to $100 per session. The diagnostic tests that Hands-on Diagnostics teaches you, let you deliver a wider spectrum of services, bill a whole new universe of billing codes and average $550 per diagnostic session.

Increased Insurance Payments

bigger reimbursements

The ability to bill for diagnostic CPT codes can dramatically increase cash flow in your clinic or office. The diagnostic procedures that HODS teaches you to perform provide reimbursement rates 5 to 10 times higher from what you receive from a PT visit. At the same time, you create evidence-based treatment plans based on totally objective test data.

100% Increased Average-Per-Case Reimbursement

Based on the experience of physical therapists who have adopted our diagnostics, reimbursements from insurance companies routinely increase by as much as 75% with our program.

And per-patient billings routinely double. That’s right, they double—a 100% increase. (Call us if you want to hear some real numbers from real practices.)

In the words of one Hands-on Diagnostics client, “I got involved with HODS because we were looking for a solution to the problem with reimbursements. With HODS, we could improve patient outcomes and help our staff make more money while increasing our income.”

Want to make more money as a physical therapist while giving the quality of your therapy a boost? Our diagnostic testing technologies improve patient results. At the same time, the associated diagnostic billing codes increase your payments from insurance companies.

Both you and your patients benefit.

ACCURATE DIAGNOSTICS

Accurate diagnostic testing can help create more effective treatment plans leading to better outcomes

The current model of physical therapy practice involves an initial patient evaluation, followed by a treatment plan based on the patient’s examination and history. This process doesn’t always identify the underlying problem, and can diminish a treatment plan’s effectiveness through insufficient diagnosis or even misdiagnosis.

At Hands-on Diagnostics, we solve this with a new paradigm for physical therapy that incorporates an effective diagnostic approach. With our diagnostic testing, you’ll have objective, reliable data that can help you create accurate physical therapy treatment plans. And accurate treatment leads to better patient outcomes.

HEAR IT FROM OTHER PTs

Here are some words from other Physical Therapists

After receiving my initial training under HODS in EMG, I was able to really help a new patient. She was an osteoarthritic knee patient who also complained of pain that radiated from the knee to the 4th toe. We weren’t certain whether her pain was from was a peripheral nerve injury or nerve root problem. After EMG we were able to confirm an L5 nerve root injury, provide focused treatment to the lower lumbar spine, and eliminate her radiating symptoms in 2 visits, then completed her care for the arthritic knee after clearing that. Great success to eliminate her pain so quickly through the guidance of EMG, and not just make a “best guess” approach to PT treatment.

Nathan Shields, PT

I got involved with HODS because we were looking for a solution to the problem with reimbursements. With HODS, we could improve patient outcomes and help our staff make more money while increasing our income.

For example, if we had a patient who came in with “rotator cuff” diagnosis without identifying the specific muscle involved, we would do Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and we would be able to be more specific with our Therapy. All of these tests allow us to better treat the patients. I really feel like we are ahead of the field.

Cindi A. Prentiss

We’ve been fighting with reimbursements, we’ve been fighting with declining reimbursements and it is very easy to get frustrated and wonder, how am I going to survive? Well, bringing in diagnostics is not only in line with APTA’s 2020 vision of PTs as truly autonomous practitioners, but from a financial prospective, puts me more in control of my financial picture because diagnostics add a new revenue line into my PT practice and allows me to expand while helping my patients get better.

Here are some words from other Physicians

I trust the Physical Therapy team of Dr. Kostopoulos providing accurate diagnostic testing results for my patients. The competency level of the physical therapists who perform the various tests exceeds any of my expectations.
Intazam Khan, MD
Clinical Assistant Professor of Neurology
Diplomat American Board of Psychiatry & Neurology

Coupling the physical therapy training with EMG training is actually ideal because it helps them actually talk to the patient and figure out what test the could do and interact with the ordering physician to really determine what’s the best test and what the beast outcome should be.

Diagnostic testing performed by competent, HODS trained physical therapists have made a difference in my practice, helping me manage my patients more effectively.
