Treatment Volume is Back! Watch Out for Therapist Burnout
FINALLY, we’re seeing average treatment rates higher than pre-pandemic levels.
On a same-practice basis, Systems 4PT practices’ average treatment volume in April ’21 was 4% higher than pre-pandemic, April 2019.
How These Practices Recovered
When patients are the center of your focus, referrals are strong. Therapists using Systems 4PT spend more time treating and less time typing. In addition, our therapists have the least documentation homework and the lowest burnout in the industry.

The Great News About Practice Profitability
We are thrilled that this increase revenue falls right to Systems 4PT practices’ profit line. Because s4pt delivers all the add ons (such as telehealth, patient portal, and surveys) without add-on charges… It is common for Systems 4PT practices to pay 35% less than for the other leading EMR/billing options.
Higher Treatment Rates + Low Costs = More Profit
The Challenges of Returning to Normal With Other EMRs
As their treatment rates return to normal, MANY practices are experiencing two unwelcome realities:
- As treatment rates increase, so does Therapist homework and burnout
- Yes, patient volume is returning to normal, but expenses are now higher than ever, meaning profit is lower than normal.
You remember that prior to the pandemic, Therapist burnout was one of the top problems in Outpatient Rehab. Burnout is caused by slow, checklist EMR which buries Therapists in documentation homework.
And while treatment rates were low, many bank-owned EMRs urged their practices to buy add-on features to accelerate recovery. It’s odd that so many practices that are spending (a lot) more are recovering more slowly than practices that simply focus on the basics.
