The Private Practice Section of the American Physical Therapy Association is holding its annual conference in Colorado Springs, Colorado. It isn't too late to register! The conference is scheduled from November 7-10. I spent some time reviewing the sessions. I'll highlight the top picks that I think will be favorites for leaders with an outcomes focus.
Conferences excite me because of two opportunities: the ability to spend time with colleagues and the educational component to learn from so many others who are smarter than myself. Although I will not be in attendance this year, it appears that I will miss seeing some of my favorite colleagues sharing what they do best. This year looks interesting with the addition of Buzz Sessions and Solution Rooms. The beauty of these two new offerings allows for so much more engaging participant discussions. Many of the sessions interested me. For this particular post, I focused on Friday sessions. My top 5 picks are shown in the video below.
As you can see, I chose sessions with topics on a wide range of things such as: thinking about private equity-backed practices (because yes, this market is growing), value based payment models (because this is the future when it comes to insurance payer payment models), contracting (because it is really important to understand contracts and the impact of contracts), collecting and using outcomes (because that is exactly what FOTO does for you) and business metrics for value based care (because I loved that this session will help you be proactive with quality based payment models).
If you are interested in the detailed conference schedule, you can find it here. The FOTO Team will be at booth 601. Stop by and say hi! The team loves catching up with those of you who use FOTO. The team also loves sharing all they know about functional outcomes: patient reported outcome measures, risk adjustment, predictive analytics, and marketing outcomes. Besides conversing, they also enjoy giving demonstrations about FOTO's product.
