PPMP: Practice Management Software Systems
Practice Management Software (PMS) has been aiding allied health professionals with their practice for years. It allows them to store vital information about patients, perform billing tasks, and even generate reports. Therefore, it is imperative for a healthcare facility to use PMS from a reliable source. PPMP, hailing from Australia has close to three decades’ worth of experience in this sector, as an industry leader in integration and interoperability with the key stakeholders in the e-health environment. With more integrations than any of its competitors, PPMP stands apart distinctively from other PMS providers that only provide basic functionality.
PPMP arms its clients with a desktop solution as well as a cloud-based solution. The desktop solution can be networked throughout the clinic and also with other clinics and remote sites, enabling PPMP access from many locations. Whereas, the cloud-based solution is primarily for SaaS users. Importantly PPMP data is hosted in Australia conforming to Department of Health and Australian Signals Directorate guidelines. Medicare online is another smart offering by the company that takes care of all Medicare payments without any paperwork. Apart from this, PPMP also integrates with most other third-party payers in the Allied Health Sector. This enables important data like financial transaction data to be handled automatically thus saving staff time and ensuring timely payment. Innovation and uniqueness are two key attributes of the company.
Our future growth will be through acquisition as opposed to simply relying on organic growth
A highly innovative and unique feature that the company offers is the digital pen technology. It enables note taking at the offices, hospitals, and healthcare facilities where notes are captured and then fed into the patients’ files.
Along its path to success, PPMP has helped many clients overcome numerous hurdles. PPMP has helped many national networks of practices to obtain KPI reports from remote clinics in real time for financial controllers. The company’s industry-leading electronic billing service has billed a mammoth $1 billion annually—increased cash flow and minimized administration time. Multi-location clinics have benefited vastly from PPMP’s Reporting feature by receiving all the clinical KPI reporting to a central location. The clinics were also able to drastically cut down on their physical storage of records by adopting PPMP’s Attendance Notes feature. Additionally, PPMP’s SMS reminders have worked wonders in practices, substantially reducing the number of no-shows by patients. It can also be used to send greetings, information about promotions, and practice activities.
Being the first software application to be endorsed by a professional association, The Australian Physiotherapy Association, PPMP has seen gradual development and growth for the last 30 years. Since its inception decades ago, the company has grown into one of the largest suppliers of practice management system. With over 8000 users worldwide, the company seems to have occupied a great presence in the PMS sector. As for expansion, the company not only looks to extend its footprint geographically throughout Australia and New Zealand but also looks to provide a greater coverage for all allied health groups. While talking to PPMP’s CEO, David Britten, he says “Our future growth will be through acquisition as opposed to simply relying on organic growth.” Partnering with various companies like HICAPS, HealthEngine, Lantern Payetc, PPMP constantly strives to provide the best eSolutions to allied health providers. With most companies migrating towards electronic billing and claiming, PPMP looks perfectly poised right at the helm of the PMS sector.
