apta position statement

Proving cost efficiency of telehealth for physical therapists is one important aspect confirming the effectiveness of telehealth. Preliminary literature has shown high levels of patient satisfaction, good clinical outcomes and cost savings with the use of TH by physical therapists. As we continue to see more value based propositions in healthcare such as CMMI's bundled payment initiatives the urgency of allowing PTs to innovate new care delivery models, including those that incorporate telehealth will be key. The references we are submitting today support cost savings with a population of patients having undergone a total knee replacement. This is a very relevant topic given CMMI's launch of the Comprehensive Care for Joint Replacement pilot in spring of 2016. ˜ Chris Peterson
