FOTO Partners with Payers to Improve Quality

FOTO and payers know the current payment model for rehabilitation services will change in the very near future. New payment models will include a combination of risk sharing and Pay for Performance. Both hinge on the level of quality of the service provided.

FOTO is leading the way in collecting and aggregating data. The FOTO system is unique with its thorough algorithm validated in peer reviewed research. FOTO risk-adjusts data based on a set of factors known to impact rehabilitation outcomes. The process involved in capturing data utilizes advanced technology to improve the validity and reliability of each patient's individual data. The FOTO system is robust enough to nationally rank providers based on their outcomes. FOTO focuses on the Triple Aim in Rehabilitation by measuring effectiveness, efficiency and satisfaction.

FOTO is pleased to announce a partnership with two new payers: HealthPartners in Minnesota and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Louisiana. Both payers are creating new payment models highly focused on Pay for Performance. Additionally, FOTO is providing outcomes reporting to Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan in a pilot study for similar purposes.
