Time marches on, and so does APTA's progress on its 2014 strategic plan.
An accounting of activities and achievements shared with the Board of Directors at its most recent meeting adds up to one bottom line: solid gains in each of APTA's goals around effectiveness of care, patient and client-centered care across the lifespan, professional excellence, and value and accountability.
During the Board's meeting April 4-6 in Alexandria, Virginia, staff and board liaisons outlined the work being done to achieve the objectives that support each of the association's 4 major goals. This work is tied to specific metrics that define individual activities and programs and identify timelines to measure progress. It's a long list of activities that ranges from the operational to the aspirational, and touches all of the association's major projects. Highlights from each goal area include:
Effectiveness of care
Patient and client-centered care across the lifespan
Value and accountability
The 2014 Strategic Plan is both an extension of the 2013 plan that was based on APTA’s former Vision 2020, and a “bridge” to the new, more outward-facing vision that APTA adopted at the 2013 House of Delegates—“Transforming society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience.”
The 2015 Strategic Plan will be based on the new vision.
