DIAGNOSING THE REAL PROBLEM ALLOWS ADDITIONAL SERVICES RESULTING IN HIGHER RETURNS

A truly successful treatment plan requires accurate diagnosis.

The diagnostic tools available today are significantly more precise than techniques that have been used in the past. But because they are so new, most therapists just don’t have access to them. 

That’s where Hands-on Diagnostics comes in. We know what’s available, and we know how to use what’s there. We know how to train you, and we know how the new techniques you learn can be most effectively billed.

The result? Higher per-patient billings and higher insurance reimbursements—a more thriving, cash-healthy business.

DOES IT REALLY GIVE HIGHER RETURNS ?

Accurate diagnostic testing uncovers additional treatment opportunities.

Through the HODS program, physical therapists have the opportunity to get trained as diagnosticians, which gives them the opportunity to deliver more and better service to their patients, and at the same time make more money. 

In addition to improving the quality of the treatment provided, it helps the therapist as well by improving the viability of the practice.

THE REAL NUMBERS

Here are some actual average numbers from PT offices

The statistics shown here are based on actual numbers from practitioners who have taken advantage of Hands-on Diagnostic Services.

From a 30% increase in patient referrals (based on successful outcomes) to a 100% increase on average reimbursement per case, the numbers speak for themselves.

  • Increased insurance reimbursements 75%
  • Increased average per-hour reimbursement 80%
  • Increased average per-case reimbursement 100%
  • Treatment-plan changes based on diagnostic testing data 35%
  • Increased patient referrals by existing referral sources 30%

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.

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.

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.
