  • Blog: Physical Therapy and the 'Triple Aim' of Health Care

    In the 21 months since health care reform legislation passed, much discussion has revolved around the "Triple Aim" of health care. Learn more about the Triple Aim and how physical therapy can help achieve its objectives of improving the experience of care, improving the health of populations, and reducing per capita costs of health care in today's Moving Forward  blog post


    • The Triple Aim is emphasized by all Twin Cities care systems with a slight variation - measurable quality, exceptional patient experience, lower per capita cost. Therapy Partners - a management services organization for independent physical therapy practices - has adopted "delivering triple aim value" as an aspect of our mission. We proved that value in 2010-11 with a value based reimbursement model with HealthPartners (HP) health plan. Therapy Partners' practices used FOTO outcomes in all clinics and worked as a team with HP in this very successful model showing health plan and providers can work collaboratively to provide meurable value to patients, employers, therapists, and health plan.
