APTA members have been selected to share their innovative practice models with
their colleagues during the upcoming Innovation Summit 2013: Collaborative Care Models. These members were nominated by
their chapters or sections because of their involvement in innovative care
delivery models. The nominations were reviewed and scored by a panel of APTA
innovators will receive funding to attend the Summit where they will interact
with policy makers, payers, physical therapists and other health professionals
as they explore the role of physical therapists in new models of health care
delivery and payment. They will share information about their work with both
onsite and virtual audiences.
Innovation Summit will be held on March 8, 2013. The Summit program will
include panel discussions on the role of physical therapists in accountable
care organizations, patient-centered medical homes, bundling initiatives, new
private payment models, and employer driven programs. Virtual attendees will
attend the programming and interact with panelists and other attendees through
an innovative online platform and social media. Registration now is open.
