The health care environment is rapidly changing. The need to successfully demonstrate the effectiveness of your services is becoming more evident. Yet, many organizations hang onto a volume-based approach to determine successful performance of the therapist. We can do better. This course will lay the foundation for you and your organization to understand the need to transform how you evaluate performance. There will be a brief review of current and expected activities related to payment models, utilization review, regulatory environment, and legislative actions. The speakers will explain how value—the outcome of the physical therapist care relative to cost or the resources needed to provide the care—is a better indicator of performance. They will identify areas that are unique to physical therapist care, and use standard terms to help describe the value equation.
