APTA members who are taking new approaches to models of care now have an opportunity to receive funding and mentoring through a new program offered by the association, but submission deadlines are soon.
APTA's Innovation 2.0 program will offer up to $150,000 to support innovation in service delivery and payment in a wide range of areas from the integration of physical therapy into collaborative care models to management ofpatients and clients that focuses on reducing hospital readmissions. The complete list of proposal areas can be found on APTA's Innovation 2.0 webpage.
Interested candidates begin by submitting a letter of intent to APTA Innovation 2.0 staff by January 20. The letter should include contact information for the project leader, name of the organization, and a brief description of the model. The formal call for proposals will begin January 17 with a February 13 deadline.
Successful recipients will attend a workshop May 8-9 to discuss their projects and receive feedback from researchers and other clinicians. Finalists will receive funding and in-kind services from APTA to pursue the projects.
Innovation 2.0 builds on the success of APTA's 2013 Innovation Summit, a groundbreaking event that brought together physical therapists, physicians, large health systems, and policy makers to discuss the current and future role of physical therapy in integrated models of care.
