APTA launches PT outcomes registry

The Alexandria, VA-based American Physical Therapy Association (APTA) launched the Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry at its Combined Sections Meeting in San Antonio, TX, held February 15-18.

The registry lets physical therapists make data-informed clinical decisions, track and bench­mark outcomes against industry data, and demonstrate the value of physical therapist services to payers and fellow pro­viders. It integrates with multiple third-party electronic health record (EHR) systems for secure data transfer.

The registry will align with current and future quality and compliance programs required by payers, such as the new Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS). Users can access outcomes measures supported by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services, as well as measures specific to particular EHRs.
