External Documents

The WebPT EMR features an External Documents tool that can be used to upload clinic files to a specific location. You have the ability to scan or upload files directly into the system. This is a convenient place to store any templates your clinic has created or safely store other clinic documents you may need in case of a disaster such as a fire or weather incident. 

These might include:

  • Patient Intake forms
  • HIPAA Acknowledgement Agreement
  • Medicare ABN
  • No-Show/Cancellation Policy
  • Proof of purchase equipment invoices or photos
