APTQI: Building The Value of Physical Therapy

You have your clients' backs.
We have yours.

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.

APTQI seeks unity, transparency among PT professionals

Our group works collaboratively with the American Physical Therapy Association (APTA), American Occupational Therapy Association (AOTA) and other leading professional groups to advocate for transparency, collaboration and an approach that will drive our profession forward. We meet with congressional leaders, Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) and attend conferences and meetings such as the AMA CPT Editorial Board meetings. APTQI is focused on having a complete picture of the forces impacting our profession and understanding what we can do to proactively advocate for therapists.

We Believe

We formed the Alliance for Physical Therapy Quality and Innovation because we believe:

  • Physical therapy provides one of the best values in all of healthcare. We are non-invasive, inexpensive and get quality clinical results with our patients.
  • Quality indicators are vital to producing measurable outcomes that demonstrate the level of quality and results we achieve with our patients.
  • Innovative approaches are necessary to position physical therapy as the provider of choice for many of the ailments we treat.
  • More research and pilot studies are needed to prove what we already know – physical therapy produces outstanding outcomes for the lowest cost. Quality/Price=Value.
  • Any code changes should be evidence-based, just as our best practices are.
  • Payment reform comes from transparent, collaborative efforts among professionals acting in the best interest of our patients.
