Payment Reform Takes Shape


2015 is shaping up to be a critical year for making incremental progress on a host of legislative initiatives facing the therapy community. With overall healthcare costs slowing while overall access grows via the ACA, therapy organizations are working on smart reforms a midst a rapidly changing landscape. Jockeying near the top of the list sits the dauntingly complex issue of payment reform. The current trends in reform move away from fee for service models that emphasize quantity over quality. This shift has been deliberate and in many ways experimental; with a number of competing approaches that emphasize a value based system. Regardless of the speed of change, the writing is on the wall and organizations like the APTA have been laying the groundwork for years to ensure that the interests of therapists are well represented.

CSM Preview

APTA-CSMNext week, Advanced Medical heads to the “Racing Capitol of the World”, to take part in the APTA Combined Sections Meeting. For non-racing fans I should reveal that Indianapolis gets to play host for this super sized gathering of physical therapy professionals. Indianapolis is home to the Indy 500, which many consider to be the world’s most famous race, although I am sure that there are more than a few people in our Daytona office that would quibble with that designation. Indiana is a state know for its basketball, so a couple of our recruiters were excited to learn that Lebron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers would be in town to play the Indiana Pacers Friday night.

Telemedicine Explodes

Telemedicine is the practice of using medical devices and technology to remotely monitor and in some cases treat patients. A number of studies have predicted growth in excess of 50% over the next 5 years for this efficient practice still in its virtual infancy. The advent of electronic health records coupled with new efficiencies mandated by the ACA have created enormous momentum for telemedicine. Also aiding the growth is faster internet speeds and advanced medical software. Routine medical issues can now be performed for multiple patients at once, allowing doctors, therapists, and other medical professionals to spend more time on complex treatments and critical care measures. Telemedicine is also improving access to rural and isolated communities, who are now able to achieve functionality with the technology required. As Medicare and Medicaid move away from reimbursing for consultations, telemedicine can help medical professionals improve their bottom line by increasing the number of patients that can be brought into the fold.
