  • APTA Call for Innovative Models of Care

    Are you involved in or aware of an innovative clinical practice model that involves physical therapist practice? APTA is developing resources to help prepare members for success in new integrated models of care, such as Accountable Care Organizations (ACOs), and advance physical therapist practice. As a first step, we would like to collect examples of innovative models of care involving physical therapists. Such models of care may include but are not limited to:

    • interprofessional models of care in which the physical therapist is the primary care manager for certain neuromusculoskeletal complaints and conditions
    • models that improve access to physical therapy care, such as those that involve technology, triage, and group-based education
    • shared savings and/or shared risk programs
    • management of health risk indicators, especially in large patient populations
    • models that demonstrate comparative effectiveness and/or cost effectiveness
    • health promotion, wellness, and prevention programs with demonstrated effectiveness

    Send a brief (approximately 100 words) description of your practice model along with your name and contact information to memberfeedback@apta.org.
