Delivering care to young children differs greatly from treating adult patients, which means pediatric practices have unique operational requirements that are best streamlined with specific technology-enabled solutions. Instead of opting for a software tailored to adult therapy, pediatric clinics need a system with specialty specific documentation, interactive engagement and configurable practice management tools that ensure proper storage of electronic medical records (EMR) (i.e. immunization cards, family medical history etc.) as well as adequate reporting capabilities. Also, pediatric therapists should adopt a billing software that includes a pediatric format for notes along with goal banks, assessment content and standardized test data relevant to the population they serve.
