Value Based Care

Value Based Care Podcasts and Resources

APTA has recently made available a new 21-part podcast series on value-based care. The free series, delivered in easily digestible 5- to 7-minute presentations, moves from big-picture questions such as "What is value?" and "Why do we need quality measures?" to the nitty-gritty of the Merit-based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) and advanced Alternative Payment Models (APMs). The series is part of APTA's efforts to educate physical therapists and physical therapist assistants on changes that currently are voluntary, but could be mandatory as early as 2019 and merit attention now. A link to the podcasts, as well as a wide range of other resources on value-based care, can be found on the association's Value-Based Care webpage.
