APTA Outcomes Registry and the Academy
The Academy supports APTA's Outcomes Registry, which collects and aggregates participating practices' electronic health record (EHR) data on patient function and other clinically important measures for patients receiving physical therapist services. The Registry will improve practice, fulfill quality reporting requirements, promote research, and inform future payment for physical therapist services.
APTA launched the Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry in 2017 to provide a user-friendly system for collecting uniform data on patient and client outcomes. Data will help guide best practices, help providers meet regulatory reporting requirements, generate benchmarking reports, and help shape payment policy. PTOR participation is open to US-based licensed physical therapists with a National Provider Identifier (NPI). Participation is handled at the clinic level. (If you are an individual physical therapist and want to participate, please contact your clinic administrator.) Not all physical therapists in a practice must participate, but full participation will generate data that most accurately reflects practice performance.
The Academy of Pediatric Physical Therapy is sponsoring enrollment for 1 year for physical therapists who are members of APPT. The goal of the sponsored enrollment is to gather information about practice patterns for infants with congenital muscular torticollis.
