Medicare-Compliant Features in Documentation
- Each unit of direct time ranges from 8-22 minutes.
- Untimed codes only count toward total treatment time, not direct time.
- WebPT makes separate calculations for direct time units and total treatment minutes.
- WebPT always verifies minute totals and checks them against the recorded CPT codes.

Outcome Measurement Tools (OMTs)
- Medicare requires therapists to use at least one OMT.
- Examples include the Oswestry Low Back Pain Scale and DASH.
- Therapists can input the score of an OMT directly into WebPT during or after the patient completes the questionnaire.
- Entered scores carry forward from the Initial Evaluation into each evaluative note.
