FOTO: Multi-site Implementation and User Buy-inJody Swearingen

 
 

Highlights -

  • Layout of Results’ implementation history
    • Going from 1 - 100
  • User compliance and buy-in for FOTO
    • Clinician
    • Patient
    • Roadblocks and Pitfalls to getting “green” across the board from the outset

Description -

This presentation will focus on the experience that Results has had with implementing FOTO over a 2+ year process.  I will explore common issues with implementation for FOTO, unique issues with implementing to Results clinics, and the positives that occurred during this process.  I will describe my beliefs in how to best get user buy-in, not only from the clinician side, but also from the patient side. I twill then explore some of the difficulties that we experienced post-implementation and how we addressed these issues to continue our growth in demonstrating our outcomes via FOTO.

FOTO System:  Linking Clinicians to Treatement Effectiveness and Research

Mark Werneke

 

Highlights -

  • Clinical observations form the foundation for clinical research
  • Biopsychosocial classification and risk adjustment
  • Estimating prognosis for patients with lumbar impairments

Description -

Evidence supports that managing patients with lumbar impairments from a biopsychosocially informed perspective can enhance patient outcomes.  Clinicians interested in integrating and translating the evidence into routine clinical practice require a method to obtain appropriate patient feedback throughout the patient’s episode of care. Appropriate patient feedback can be objectively measured using FOTO data. Standardizing data documentation of clinical observations form the foundation for conducting clinical research. The purpose of the presentation will be to share the results from our ongoing Mechanical Diagnosis & Therapy group’s research efforts using standardized data documentation during routine clinical practice in outpatient rehabilitation settings.

Necking with FOTO - a Brief  But Satisfying Encounter
Karon Cook

  

Highlights -

Neck impairment is a frequent complaint that greatly impacts quality of life.
  • Current measures of neck outcomes have drawbacks, including high response burden.
  • FOTO’s new Neck Functional Status CAT provides important improvements over previously developed measures.
  • With FOTO Neck Functional Status CAT good precision is achieved with low response burden.

Description -

There are several existing patient-reported measures of cervical outcomes (e.g., Neck Disability Index (NDI), Neck Pain and Dis¬ability Scale, Northwick Park Neck Pain Questionnaire). Drawbacks to these scales have been identified including multidimensionality, non-equivalence by sex and in different age groups, and floor effects. In addition, existing measures use traditional approaches to measurement and lack the precision and efficiency of computer adaptive measures. To address this, FOTO recently developed the Neck Functional Status (NFS) CAT. In this presentation, Dr. Cook will discuss how the NFS CAT was developed, evidence for its reliability and validity, and  why “necking with FOTO” is a brief, but nevertheless, a satisfying encounter.

Impact of Risk Adjustment and Formal Education and Training on Clinical Outcomes: FOTO ResearchDr. Jason R. Rodeghero

 

  

Description

Utilization of data from FOTO has been influential in the investigation of the impact post-professional education may have on clinical outcomes.  This presentation will review the findings of an initial investigation into the impact PT residency or fellowship training on patient outcomes.  There will also be discussion of how the FOTO data were used to identify prognostic risk stratification models relative to physical therapy.

Negotiating and Participating in a Pay for Performance ProgramSeth Kaplan

 
 

Highlights:

  • Creating a culture of data collection and management around outcomes
  • Demonstrating value
  • Negotiating contractual changes with payer

Description:

Why we push outcome data collection in our practice and why I think it is so important for the future of physical therapy. (I truly believe that in order for PT to remain a viable option for the future for patients, we have to demonstrate “value” to those accessing our services (Patients, MDs, Insurance companies etc.)  There are too many “substitutes” positioning for our patients and if we are able to demonstrate the value we offer, then we will not only succeed, but we will thrive.

Navigating & Leveraging FOTO Within a Large Healthcare SystemNikki.jpeg

 

Highlights:

  • Lessons learned in the first few years of using FOTO

  • Use of FOTO data in communications with providers, payers, administration, board, and community

  • Importance of front-line staff in ongoing training and the use of FOTO

  • Satisfaction surveys and their importance in helping guide your conversations

Description:

The road after initial implementation can present with a unique set of questions and challenges. We find ourselves asking, “Now that we have data, what do we do with it and who needs to know about it?”  This presentation will discuss the ways FOTO can be used in communications with payers, referral sources, hospital board and administration, and the greater community.  We will also discuss ongoing training of staff, the use of a FOTO committee, and the relevance and importance of the satisfaction questions on the survey.
