Tuesday, August 09, 2016 Innovation 2.0 Series of Learning Labs Continues With Transitions in Care A program that teams an academic physical therapist program with a primary care provider of postacute care services to patients after hip and knee surgery shares its insights and experiences at APTA’s second of 4 Innovation 2.0 Learning Labs, now available in the APTA Learning Center. This free webinar includes the recorded session, including the presenters’ slide deck, and a downloadable guide to replicating the program in other facilities. The July online Learning Lab in APTA’s Innovation 2.0 series focuses on a partnership between a contract provider of physical therapist services to local skilled nursing facilities, and the University of Utah physical therapy program. The project has developed evidence-based care pathways for patients with hip fracture, total hip arthroplasty, and total knee arthroplasty. In this model, physical therapists are working collaboratively within the health care system to improve value-driven outcomes. The Innovation 2.0 series is designed to promote the participation of physical therapy in innovative models of care delivery by replicating successful models throughout the country. Free access to the course and materials is available through the APTA Learning Center. Look for other Innovation 2.0 Learning Labs; topics include pay for performance in treating patients with low back pain (available now), PTs as part of an accountable care organization (later this year), and a patient-centered medical home model that addresses childhood obesity (later this year).
