The Outcomes Conference is intended to bring FOTO clients and industry leaders together to learn from one another about how to better gather and use outcomes data. This will be the 14th year FOTO has hosted the meeting, and it is growing every year
The meeting consists of presentations by FOTO clients, on topics ranging from how to better implement outcomes data collection to how to use the data gathered to improve patient care. Based on responses from previous participants, more networking time has been built into the program along with additional opportunities for one on one time with FOTO staff.
A new addition to the meeting in 2013, which was a great success, was the addition of scientific presentations on relevant topics by members of the FOTO Research Advisory Board. The 2014 conference will have Karon Cook, PhD from Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine presenting about how Computer Adaptive Testing is developed, why it is important, and the future of CAT development. Additionally, Julie Fritz, PT, PhD, ATC, from the University of Utah, will present on studies that have been done measuring the most effective and efficient treatments for low back pain.
"The Outcomes Conference is the highlight of the year for FOTO! It is a great time to connect with clients and others interested in outcomes," states FOTO’s President, Al Amato, PT, MBA.
