The House called upon APTA to review current resources and develop needed new resources to provide and promote a process for the training and recognition of physical therapists (PTs) to perform peer review of physical therapist services. APTA’s existing position (HOD P06-04-16-15) that only PTs should review physical therapist services hasn’t yet been realized; the lack of trained and qualified reviewers is partly to blame, supporting comments for the motion indicated.
A report outlining the process and a timeline for completion is due to the 2014 House of Delegates with plans for implementation due no later than January 1, 2015. [RC 29-13]
Draft language adopted by the 2013 House of Delegates will be available on the House Community no later than July 12. Final language for all actions taken by the June 2013 House will be available by September after the minutes have been approved.
