• Why should my organization participate in the Registry?
    The Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry can help you elevate patient care through data-informed clinical decision making and visualize the value of your care with easy-to-use reporting tools. Joining the Registry also can help you maximize payment potential, demonstrate the value of physical therapist services, and seize opportunities to participate in collaborative care. The Registry is also a participant of the National Quality Research Network (NQRN).

    How is the Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry unique?
    The Registry allows you to: track patients across multiple episodes of care; access nonproprietary, CMS-supported outcomes measures, in addition to vendor-specific measures; and treat patients according to clinical practice guidelines using body region/disease-specific treatment and outcome modules.

    Will it create more work for staff?
    No! Data will be extracted automatically from your EHR and transmitted directly to the Registry, which will be integrated with most major EHR products.

    Is the Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry accredited?
    The Physical Therapy Outcomes 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.
