The Alliance for Physical Therapy Quality and Innovation
The Alliance for Physical Therapy Quality and Innovation (APTQI) unites small, medium and large physical therapy practices to advocate for the physical therapy profession in the areas of payment reform, quality initiatives, outcomes and innovation projects. We are an aligned group of therapists and practices who share a common vision for the future of our profession. Our goal is to establish physical therapy as the treatment of choice and the best value for patients and payers.
As our country continues its push to lower the cost of healthcare, especially among the burgeoning population of seniors with age-related disabilities, transitioning to a value-based insurance design payment model that rewards value, rather than quantity, will become progressively more important. In the realms of musculoskeletal pain and movement dysfunction, this transition must be accompanied with sincere efforts to identify treatments that can effectively manage pain and reduce the total cost of care.
