With more than 25 years of experience, David Brungo, PT set out to start up his own private physical therapy practice. Thus was the start of Summerville Physical Therapy and Balance Rehabilitation for Adults. The practice, which is located in Summerville, SC, provides outpatient physical therapy services to adults 18 and over in the surrounding area. A two-person team consisting of Mr. Brungo and his wife, the private physical therapy practice knew from the beginning it wanted to stay away from paper records and implement an EMR system. After much evaluation, InSync’s cloud-based solution stuck out from the rest of the competition and has helped launch the start of Mr. Brungo’s new practice.

“InSync is as strong of a competitor as any other EMR on the market today.”

Results

With InSync, Practice is Confident in Both Present and Future

 

With more than 25 years of experience as a physical therapist, David Brungo, PT certainly didn’t have anything else to prove. However, the challenge and excitement of starting a private practice drew Mr. Brungo into launching Summerville Physical Therapy and Balance Rehabilitation for Adults.

The solo practice, which only includes his wife on staff, is located in Summerville, SC From the beginning, Mr. Brungo and his wife had no interest in messing with paper record and only sought EMR software as they opened their doors.

The search, however, didn’t bear much fruit initially.

“I found it hard to find customization and the specificity we needed for physical therapy with other EMR systems,” said Mr. Brungo. “I have used other EMRs in the past as previous jobs and many were ‘cookie cutter’ solutions.”

Eventually, his search led him to InSync Healthcare Solutions, which boasts a cloud-based system that’s specific to a physical therapy practice. Mr. Bungo and his practice have now been InSync clients since January 2017.

“I felt InSync provided a very comprehensive tool kit for practicing physical therapy,” Mr. Brungo said. “There’s a lot of customization that’s available, which is really important to us because we are so small. We have a unique focus in our practice, so I was able to customize things to be more relevant in regard to documentation and testing.”

“InSync held our hands and calmed our anxieties as we started up.”

Although Mr. Brungo’s practice has only been operational for less than a year, he’s optimistic about its future growth and InSync’s ability to grow along with the practice.

“We’re a completely independent practice, but we’re growing quickly,” he said. “As soon as we get a large enough foundation, I’ll start bringing on other clinicians and could hire another one as soon as the end of the year.”

“I’m entirely confident with InSync’s ability to work alongside us as the practice grows in the coming years,” Mr. Brungo added. “Typically, there’s a bit of a learning curve with new clinicians and software but InSync is so user-friendly that I’m confident the learning curve won’t be too steep.”

“InSync is as strong of a competitor as any other EMR on the market today.”
