DIAGNOSTICS FOR PT

Implementing testing

DIAGNOSTIC TESTS ARE PERFORMED ON PATIENTS, INCREASING ACCURATE DIAGNOSIS AND POTENTIAL TREATMENTS, AND RESULTS

Without identifying the underlying cause of a condition, you’re really only treating symptoms. Chances are that the treatment will extend much longer than it needs to, and in the end, the patient outcome will still be compromised.

At Hands-on Diagnostics, we’re constantly researching to find the most accurate and effective diagnostic tests available. As we add new diagnostic tools, we also develop highly-effective training programs for each test.

When you sign up with our program, you gain access to the most efficient and cost-effective diagnostic testing and equipment we have found, and to the shortest runway possible in how to make the most of it.

The result is improved diagnostics, more successful patient outcomes, higher reimbursements, and a quickly expanding practice.

EMG TESTS

Measuring the electrical activity in muscles and nerves can help find diseases that damage muscle tissue.

ULTRASOUND TEST

Diagnostic ultrasound is noninvasive and offers real-time imaging, allowing for examinations of structures.

NCS TEST

Nerve Conduction Studies (NCS) are used to measure the health and condition of the nerves.
LEARN MORE

VNG TEST

VNG testing is considered the new standard for testing inner ear functions.

EXTRA DIAGNOSTICS

ULTRASOUND

Superior to x-rays and more expensive imaging tools for some cartilage and bone as well as soft tissue injuries.

EMG

Electromyography (EMG) is a diagnostic technique for evaluating electrical activity from skeletal muscles.

NCS

Nerve conduction studies (NCS) measure the nerve’s abilities to transmit electrical impulses.

VNG

Videonystagmography (VNG) tests for the source of dizziness or balance problems.

SSEP

Somatosensory evoked potential (SSEP) tests evaluate damage to the spinal cord or neuromuscular system.

VEP

Visual evoked potential (VEP) tests are used to diagnose impaired impulses along the optic nerve.

BAER

Brainstem auditory evoked potential (BAER) tests are used for auditory and brainstem disorders.

Technology evolves, and at HODS, we make a point of staying on top of new developments that we can share with you.

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 Diagnostics.

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.

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.

HEAR IT FROM PHYSICIANS

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.

Prem C. Chatpar, M.D., F.A.C.R.
Director of East Coast Rheumatology

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