Hit the Reset Button

By Tannus Quatre, PT, MBA

I’ve got a quiz for you.

Your cell phone (or computer) just went wonky. You didn’t drop it in a puddle or run it over with your car. It’s just not quite working as it usually does, and it’s really beginning to frustrate you. What’s the first action you take?

If you’ve had any experience with small electronics, you’ll know that it usually doesn’t pay to hire an electrical engineer or computer technician to fix each issue that comes your way. At least not to start with.

Weekly Report


Create a healthy business future with weekly vital signs reporting.

By Larry D. Briand, PT, MS, ATC

At the beginning of a patient’s visit, the patient’s height, weight, blood pressure, and pulse are taken, even before getting into the details of “How are you feeling today?” These are known as vital signs. It is paramount information in learning a patient’s overall health status and shows where they are and potentially where they need to be.

Accountability in Your Business


Bringing clarity and focus to how your team contributes to the success of your practice can enhance overall results and attainment of your business goals.

By Sturdy McKee, PT, MPT, CEO

Not enough employees in general, and especially in our industry, understand exactly what it is they are responsible for producing. They know their job title, schedule, and may understand some components of what you expect them to deliver. They know they are responsible for taking care of patients or administrative tasks, but they lack the specificity to be able to tell you what the two most important things are in performing their job.
