Session 2: Saturday, 1:15 PM - 4:30 PM, 4/28/2012
- Why FOTO is just what the Payer Ordered - Jeff Hathaway, DPT, ProACTIVE PT and Breakthrough PT - We will discuss and explore why and how FOTO is a key component in developing solutions with payers that can positively impact payment and/or co-pays. What is it specifically payers are looking for, how can you begin to get their attention and move your practice toward a Value Creation business model and away from the commodity trap we have fallen into. Learn how to finally make outcomes important on the financial side of practice.
- Network Utilization of Outcomes for Pay-for-Performance and Network Growth - Jim Hoyme, PT, MBA, Therapy Partners and OSI, Craig Johnson, PT, MBA, Therapy Partners, and Derek Vraa, MPT, OCS, OSCS, PTOSI- How a network of private practices used FOTO to build their relationship with a major payer and develop a pay-for-performance pilot with that payer. Learn the fundamentals of the "value based purchasing model" and see the results of that pilot, including the withhold payment and significant raise the network was given. Hear about the role played by the network's Director of Clinical Integration and his vision and plan for using FOTO to grow their practices.
- Utilizing Outcomes to Better Manage Patients and Increase Per Visit Rate - Jon Weinberg, PT, Dip. MDT, TeamCare- How outcomes data on treatment efficiency and effectiveness was used to negotiate a better rate with a payer. Learn the latest on this project, as a new pilot project that utilizes outcomes is being planned.

- Can we learn to manage patients better using outcomes? - Mark Werneke MS, PT, Dip. MDT, CentraState Medical Center - Learn how to stage patients from the initial pain onset (stage 1) to restoring movement restrictions and strength (stage 2) to fully functional (stage 3) by using outcomes as the external marker to make decisions regarding continuing, discharging or changing treatment strategies at the patient bedside, using data from a psychosocially informed practice as mandated by the APTA.
- Initial Examination of Outcomes for Patients Seeking Outpatient Rehabilitation for Pelvic Floor Dysfunction - Ying-Chi Wang, OTR/L, PhD, FOTO- To evaluate initial psychometric properties and practicability of the Urinary Incontinence questionnaire (UIQ) in individuals with disorders associated with PFD seeking outpatient physical therapy services using Item Response Theory (IRT) methods and the Graded Response model (GRM), we assessed item unidimensionality and local independence, differential item functioning (DIF), item hierarchical structure, test precision, and discriminating ability of the UIQ items.
- Current Research and Advancements in Risk-Adjustment - Learn about the results of recent testing of risk-adjustment factors with FOTO, including the importance of somatization, depression, pain, etc.
