D.L. Hart International Research Award Recipient - Risk Stratification #OC2018

Does it sometimes feel like you are gambling with the unknown? FOTO's Outcomes Conference held in Denver, Colorado from September 27th - September 29th includes words from the D. L. Hart International Research Award recipient. Jason Rodeghero will be speaking about risk stratification findings.


 The very first time you meet your patient and your patient is sitting across from you, often times it feels like you are gambling, right? Will you really be able to help this person? You feel like you're waiting for that 5th card to be face up on the poker table. Do you draw in the pile of chips or are they pushed toward another player on the table?

Jason Rodeghero received the D. L. Hart International Research Award for the published research titled : Risk stratification of patients with shoulder pain seen in physical therapy practice.  He received the award to recognize his research that identifies predictive characteristics related to patients with shoulder pain affecting the ability to restore shoulder function while reducing healthcare costs. The study was co-authored by Josh Cleland, Paul Mintken, and Chad Cook. The study was selected for  the award specifically because it showed how functional patient-reported outcomes data, derived from FOTO's database, can be used to model and predict risk stratification of patients to identify effective physical therapy care.

I know from the upcoming report, Data Trends in U.S. Healthcare and Patient Rehabilitation - Focus Patient Characteristics, Patient Outcomes and Clinical Performance, that many patients present for services with a shoulder problem. Hopefully, you will enjoy hearing what Jason has to say about the research findings. The findings may help you reduce the feeling that you are gambling with patients who have shoulder problems.  You may be able to better determine the risk categorization for the patient who has a shoulder problem.

In the event this conference is new to you, here are the thoughts from an attendee from last year's conference:

The passion of the FOTO staff. How well the conference was planned and executed.

The content of the conference revolves around outcomes: sharing the science,  helping with implementation, understanding data, using the data clinically, increasing patient engagement, marketing and discussing payer contracts focused on value based purchasing.
