Changes in health care financing have required a systems approach to care delivery focused on value and quality. The Department of Health and Human Services expect to have 85% of Medicare beneficiary plans linked to quality or value by 2016, and 90% of plans by 2018. There is a similar transition planned for Medicaid and private insurers. Physical therapy has a unique opportunity to actively participate in solutions that reduce expense while improving efficiency and the overall patient experience. An important aspect of providing value is a clear understanding of population health management and aligned transitions between levels of care. In response, several health system physical therapist leaders are transforming their practices to identify and measure the value of physical therapy. Physical therapists are instrumental in reducing the length of stay and restoring function in acute care hospitals, determining postacute placement, and providing evidenced-based care to improve quality, outcomes, and cost.
