Friday, May 02, 2014 First-Round Innovation 2.0 Project Descriptions Posted APTA has posted full descriptions of the 21 promising and innovative models for physical therapy care that will be explored at APTA headquarters May 8 – 9 as part of the association's Innovation 2.0 initiative. The projects entering this phase of the project were selected from almost 60 submissions after evaluation by an expert panel. During the upcoming workshop, these 21 models will receive valuable feedback from researchers and other clinicians. The models will then submit proposals with further detail to be considered for the final selection of applicants receiving funding and in-kind services to advance their models and promote the impact of physical therapy in the emerging health care environment. Innovation 2.0 is an initiative aimed at bolstering the impact of physical therapy in innovative and emerging models of health care such as accountable care organizations, bundled payment, direct access, patient-centered medical homes, prevention and health promotion, and value-based purchasing.
