  • Get Ready For Innovation 2.0

    In the wake of APTA's highly popular 2013 Innovation Summit, the association is launching Innovation 2.0, a new program that will provide funding awards and 1-on-1 guidance to innovators who are developing or participating in new ways to promote the role of physical therapy in collaborative care models.

    On January 9, APTA will begin accepting letters of intent from applicants who are engaged in innovations in models of care that include accountable care organizations, patient-centered medical homes, bundled payment systems, and patient management of chronic conditions. APTA will provide funding and in-kind services to selected applicants, and engage participants in individual work with experts and leaders to further promote the impact of physical therapy on these emerging models.

    Innovation 2.0 is designed to assist the physical therapy community in connecting the dots from feasibility studies to meaningful outcomes and to help move great ideas from small-scale use to wide applicability.

    Detailed information on how to submit your letter of intent as well as the formal application process will be released in January. Spread the news and stay tuned for more information at the beginning of the year.


    • I am a physical therapist licensed in IL, and I have been studying Yoga and Ayurveda (Science of Life) very keenly in the past 2 years. And seen the non invasive benefits of this scientific practice. I was wondering if APTA would consider this as a way of creating chronic conditions a possiblity for research, and complement our therapy practice?
