Reimbursement is shifting to value-based payment with both the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) and private payers committing to aggressive timelines to move from fee-for-service payment systems toward those that reward physical therapists and other health care providers for improved patient outcomes. Data is the currency of the future that will enable physical therapists to survive and thrive in this developing value-based payment environment. Physical therapists will need to leverage their data to visualize their value, improve care, and define the future. Through the use of registries, physical therapists will be able to benchmark against their peers, drive decision making, improve clinical outcomes, create opportunities and maximize payment. Additionally, it is important for physical therapists to understand how quality reporting goes hand in hand with value. It is important that physical therapists understand the interrelationship between quality reporting and value-based programs, and how it supports the triple aim. This session will provide attendees with knowledge and strategies that they can use to assess the value of care they provide to patients and position their practices for participation in value-based payment models going forward.
