Spreading The #PTTransforms Message

PTTransformsA few years ago I had the privilege of marching on the Washington State capitol building with hundred of therapists from the Washington State Physical Therapy Association (PTWA). Advanced Medical was a “Feed the Masses” sponsor for the state legislative impact day and I came away impressed by the professional pride and optimistic energy of the chapter members. My fond memories of that day returned quickly when I read about last week’s National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) that took place in Seattle and saw members of the PTWA leading the attendees in a “Walk for Wellness”. The conference brought together state representatives, legislators, and staff to discuss public policy. On hand for the festivities, the APTA and PTWA discussed pertinent issues related to the physical therapy profession. With over 5,000 attendees, the conference was an excellent chance to reach those tasked with the “meat and potatoes” work of forming public policy.  (more…)

The Iceman Cometh


“Some people skate to the puck. I skate to where the puck is going to be.”
~Wayne Gretzky

They say a good hockey ref must display agility, poise, fairness, communication, and teamwork. If this is true, then Seth Mukai must be an exemplary referee because Seth exhibits these qualities in spades. A Division I and Semi-pro hockey ref in his spare time, Seth has been promoted to Director of School Therapy at Advanced Medical. His steady demeanor, selfless character, and ability to tune out negativity will be a tremendous asset for the burgeoning school division. Vice President of Sales, Keeley Murphy, describes Seth as, “a master of conflict resolution who handles sensitive situations with poise and integrity.” This comes as no surprise since “master of conflict resolution” could be the actual job title of hockey refs who, shall we say, face slightly more colorful language than a tennis umpire.

CMS Establishes Home Health Ratings

home-healthIn this day and age, everybody’s a critic. With sites like Trip Advisor, Yelp, and the movie site Rotten Tomatoes, there is virtually an unlimited serving of critical commentary…often served with a side of stupid. Now the CMS (Center for Medicare Services) – after developing rankings for nursing homes and hospitals – is extending its 5 Star Rating System to Home Health Agencies. This development has been long overdue as the baby boomers age with relentless speed. In addition, continuing regulations and coverage standards can create confusion for those wanting to make informed decisions on long term care. While knowing the quality of croutons in a Caesar salad and deciding what flick to stream on a weekend Netflix binge is of critical importance to us as Americans (I especially have a weakness for Rotten Tomatoes), these CMS ratings register at a vastly different level of importance.
