Learn about why we have rebranded

As speech therapists, we set out to improve how our patients communicate. Whether working post-accident or alongside developmental challenges, we are masters of the art and science that takes bodily cognition, combine it with stronger muscles, and generates a robust voice for our patients. But our interventions not only help someone speak, in fact here are some life-changing impacts of speech therapy.

Short-Term Effects of Speech Therapy

Long-Term Effect of Speech Therapy

  • More Independence -As mentioned earlier, we rely on each other for so much, however, when we have a clear, strong voice, we can also maintain more independence, relying less on caretakers and being better able to express our wants and needs. This can help us live fuller, healthier lives, while simultaneously reducing caretaker burnout.
  • Improved Physical Health -Those living with speech disorders or who may be recovering from debilitating medical instances such as a stroke may have trouble mastering their motor skills. This includes swallowing and breathing, and we don’t need to tell you how critical these are for everyday life. With speech therapy interventions, patients can become less likely to choke and can quite literally breathe easier. Furthermore, the more capable an individual is of speaking, the more they can advocate for themselves and speak up when it comes to their medical care.
  • Decreased Anxiety -When living with a speech disorder or impairment of any kind, the world suddenly presents far more obstacles and opportunities for things to go wrong. Over time, a state of anxiety can shroud one’s perception of the world. Besides the emotional effects, prolonged anxiety can also contribute to other health factors. But with a vocal quality that can make it over life’s hurdles, we are able to circumvent many of these issues.
  • Stronger Understanding -The benefits of speech therapy go way beyond the in-the-moment comprehension of words, sounds, and ideas. But interventions can, in the long-term, help patients understand larger-scale concepts and ideas that may have been unattainable to them before.

Fusion users consistently voted for a waitlist as one of the features you wanted the most. We listened, and we’re proud to announce our new waitlist functionality is launching. 

The Waitlist features will be available for Fusion Enhanced and Billing plans. These users can start using the Waitlist once it’s launched. If you’re a Fusion Basic user and you’re interested in the waitlist, please speak with one of our specialists about upgrading your plan.

What Does the Waitlist Do? 

Say goodbye to scattered post-it notes and cumbersome excel spreadsheets. The Waitlist functionality is fully integrated within Fusion, which helps eliminate redundancies and simplifies scheduling. With this function, you can: 

Add a new or existing patient to the waitlist with options to track: 

View the waitlist with the following available actions  

Remove the waitlist entry when the patient is scheduled 


How Does That Help You? 

Instead of leaving patients in post-it notes and scattered spreadsheets, you can enter patients, update their information and find them without leaving the waitlist, as well as find available appointments more easily thanks to scheduling integration. Patients are prioritized based on waiting time.

There is no time like the present. Or at least goes the old saying. If you’re embarking on a new journey in your career and thinking of starting your own practice, we can’t be more thrilled for you. We also understand, however, that this new endeavor can be frightening since therapy clinics are nothing like the average business. Let’s walk through a few high-priority items to iron out before starting your own therapy practice.

1. Understand Your Niche

As you know, patients receive physical therapy for endless reasons and the interventions can be just as diverse. Though it’s tempting to serve as an “every man”, (and certainly if you’re just starting out, you can’t exactly turn away revenue), finding your niche can help you stand out and really deliver great outcomes. Is sports therapy your forte? Will you treat primarily children or geriatric patients? Perhaps spinal care is where you feel most at home.

Knowing where your talents lie can help you better direct your treasures. That means purchasing the right equipment, marketing appropriately, developing strong professional relationships, and mastering insurance billing. It can also help you stand out in your local market and meet an otherwise unfulfilled need for the community.

2. Find the Right Software Stack

No practice can operate efficiently (and in some cases, legally) without an EHR (electronic health record). And, on the other hand, the wrong EHR can slow down your business, frustrating staff and patients. Here are a few things to look for when shopping around for EHR vendors.

3. Build Your Dream Team

There’s so much more involved in running a successful therapy practice than fantastic patient care. You’ll need to master patient relations, understand software, make sure billing and claims are handled appropriately. So, if you think you’re going to need some extra hands, now is the time to begin your search.

Think strategically about the needs of your practice. Understand if it’s more important to hire a jack-of-all-trades office admin superstar or could you benefit from another provider to double the patient load and bring in revenue to cover overhead. Maybe there’s a particular specialty that would be valuable to have on board.

From there, start reaching out to your network. Ask for referrals to find stellar candidates and start interviewing.

4. Iron Out Billing

Likely, revenue will come from a mix of patient responsibility and insurance payments. Since cash flow is what’s going to keep your business afloat. Here are a few ways to make sure both are working for your new practice.

Patient Responsibility

Insurance Billing

Get Strategic About Marketing

Marketing may seem like an alien landscape, especially if you’re more focused on providing stellar patient care than driving leads. But understanding marketing basics and taking care of those needs now can set your practice up for success.

Start with your brand. Determine what sets your practice apart from others in the area -and back it up with proof and values. Then, find a way to represent these values in assets like your logo, website, print materials, etc.

Once your fundamentals are in place, start getting the word out there. Set some goals andlay out a strategy and timeline for achieving them. Here are some ideas:

Marketing possibilities are endless. Start with what will give you the most bang for your buck, keep an eye on the results, and optimize as you go.
