The Registry delivers value for clinicians, practices, and electronic health record vendors.

The shift toward value-based care and patient-driven outcomes is a shift toward data.

The value of care can't be determined without a sense of how that care affects outcomes.

This need for data touches every corner of health care, from the individual practitioner, to payers, to the physical therapy profession as a whole.

Benefits for Physical Therapist Practices
