The creation of large repositories of data has allowed for advances in understanding the effectiveness of services at the individual and programmatic level. Working as a physical therapist in an environment that requires more and more documentation, requires it in electronic format, and requires several outcome measures can be overwhelming and frustrating. In this session, the speakers will discuss the joys and burden of documenting using a common data model and applying that information in clinical and programmatic decision making. Systematic outcome assessment can allow clinicians to track and benchmark patient outcomes compared with other clinicians, improve data-based clinical decision making, facilitate outcomes research, and document outcomes of interventions to demonstrate the value of services to payer sources and other providers. The speakers will provide a broad overview of the history, development, and benefits of disease-specific outcomes registries and discuss challenges, logistics, and other considerations. Attendees will learn about current outcomes registries, including APTA's Physical Therapy Outcomes Registry and the Cerebral Palsy Research Network. The speakers will emphasize the joy of participating in outcomes registries and give tips on how to minimize the burden!

1. Describe the purpose of outcomes registries in clinical practice.
