Session Level: Intermediate

Apps are cool, but how do you effectively integrate them into your practice? The shift in 2014 from desktop computing to mobile devices led users to increase their internet use from 1 hour a day in 2010 to over 3 hours a day in 2015. How are you leveraging that shift in consumer behavior to maximize your clinical outcomes?

This session will explore app development and integration of app-based technology in creating and sustaining behavior change in 3 key populations: the confused health care consumer, the busy clinician, and the entry-level student/young clinician. Real-time case study"“based interactive demonstrations will cover the use and development of the "patient Perspectives"쳌 app to enhance patient education with high-quality, physical therapy"“oriented content. The "outcomes Manager"쳌 app will be used to demonstrate the power of patient classification, tracking, prognostication, and intervention guidance. The speakers will discuss examples of how the clinical practice guidelines are "brought to life"쳌 using mobile technology and integrated into entry-level and fellowship education. The session will include an interactive discussion on the creative process for app development, followed by an audience-driven discussion on current issues that may be solved by mobile app development.

Learning Objectives: Upon completion of this course, you will be able to:

1. Describe the crowded nature of consumer education related to common musculoskeletal conditions and apply mobile app technology to link the consumer to evidence-based resources, helping to define our profession as the provider of choice.

2. Define the importance of outcome measures for classification and analyze the data using algorithms built into mobile apps to synthesize prognosis and intervention choices.

3. Apply the use of mobile-based clinical practice guideline implementation tools in pre- and postprofessional settings to enhance pattern recognition, improve analysis of signs/symptoms, and synthesize impairment-matched interventions to optimize outcomes and lower health care costs.

4. Outline the process of app development and apply the principles to synthesize disruptive ways to solve profession-wide problems.
