The American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) has announced its endorsement of the AppointmentsPRO series of appointment scheduling computer software by SpectraSoft, Inc., of Tempe, Arizona.

"We are pleased to endorse this software which we believe is appropriate for physical therapy facilities of various sizes and that will meet the needs of our members for providing efficient, quality health care," said APTA President Ben F. Massey, Jr., PT, MA.

AppointmentsPRO provides a clear record of appointments and other management reports that help simplify appointment making by eliminating scheduling errors, improving workflow, and generating various reports. It also connects patient data and visit details to the industry's leading solutions for billing, documentation, and insurance verification.

"It is an honor to be recognized by APTA in this way," said Steve Petrie, CEO of SpectraSoft. "Our focus has always been on physical therapy -- to create products that meet the specific needs of rehab professionals, instead of forcing solutions on them that are designed for other healthcare applications."
