• Eligibility

    Participation in the Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry is handled at the organization level. The practice enters into a relationship with APTA, and enrolls its individual physical therapists into the Registry.

    Physical therapists enrolled in the Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry must:

    • Be licensed to practice physical therapy in the United States and its territories
    • Possess a National Provider Identifier (NPI)

    Participating practices/organizations are encouraged to register all physical therapist clinicians. If a practice/organization has multiple sites or locations, a subset of sites can be selected to participate, or all sites can participate. However, it is recommended that you enroll all physical therapists within a site in order to maximize the Registry’s reporting potential. PRNs and visiting practitioners are also eligible to be enrolled within your organization.

    APTA membership is not a requirement of participation. However, APTA members receive substantial discounts on enrollment.


    APTA is dedicated to ensuring the profession has access to the most comprehensive data set for benchmarking. For a limited time, APTA is offering special pricing incentives to encourage participation from across the country. Email registry@apta.org for more information.
