San Antonio, TX (PRWEB) April 05, 2012
Texas Physical Therapy Specialists (TexPTS) has been awarded an Outcomes Excellence Certificate from Focus On Therapeutic Outcomes, Inc. (FOTO), a nationwide outcomes database and reporting service for healthcare providers. FOTO is an external party that provides analysis and grants awards to a select group of providers across the country to recognize the excellence achieved in effectiveness of treatment. TexPTS has not only been awarded one certificate, but two, over the third and fourth quarters of 2011 for reporting better patient outcomes than the national average.
TexPTS first implemented FOTO into their practice in August 2010. The primary benefit of FOTO outcomes is that it provides a benchmark measure for overall quality and value of the services offered by an organization. When patients receive treatment from TexPTS physical therapists they are receiving treatment that has documented effectiveness and efficiency. Since put into practice, FOTO has made outcomes tracking more visible and aided in training and continuing education for TexPTS physical therapists.
“Before we started using FOTO, we had a systematic approach to applying evidence-based principles in practice through our ties with Evidence In Motion’s (EIM) Residency and Fellowship Program,” states Rob Wainner, PT, PhD, TexPTS physical therapist and co-founder. “EIM and TexPTS’s adoption of FOTO took this to a new level by helping us reinforce a culture of clinical excellence; measuring and tracking our outcomes progress is now an integral part of the treatment process.”
Wainner also reports that TexPTS proactively plans to achieve this award in the future by fine tuning training and teaching each and every day in the clinic. “TexPTS is committed to providing the best possible care to patients, and this means staying up to date with the latest and greatest medical research. Because FOTO helps us focus on the outcomes that work, we can make sure that each patient gets better, faster.”
