A new patient outcomes registry features a unique method for the collection of patient data, with a goal of supporting innovative approaches to physical therapy. The registry collects observational, epidemiologic, financial and clinical data to provide a clear understanding of the rehabilitative process and how it can impact patients’ quality of life.
The registry features a large and growing dataset that is available for a wide variety of custom analyses,” Chris Stout, PsyD, director of Research and Data Analytics at ATI and founder of the registry, stated in a press release. Data can be analyzed by physician, payer or referral source – or any combination thereof. Data are gathered in real-time and are provided to treating therapists, as well as archived for the registry and scientific use.”
Registry data are collected through ATI’s electronic medical record (EMR) system. Registry reporting can be risk-adjusted to any variable collected. The registry is HIPAA complaint and has been registered with ClinicalTrials.gov, listed in the Registry of Patient Registries, and has been vetted by the U.S. National Institutes of Health and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Agency for Healthcare Research and Quality.
