• The Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry supports APTA's vision for the physical therapy profession to "transform society by optimizing movement to improve the human experience." A powerful tool to assess the quality and value of physical therapist services, the Registry will assist the profession in its pursuit of the "triple aim" of health care: improving population health, improving the patient's experience, and lowering costs.

    The Registry: What Is It?

    The Registry 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.

    The Registry is an approved Qualified Clinical Data Registry (QCDR) by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) for the Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS).

    The Registry platform is fully accredited by the Electronic Healthcare Network Accreditation Commission (EHNAC) and is certified by the ONC (Office of the National Coordinator) Health IT Certification program as a Certified Health Information Technology product.
