Healthcare is shifting to value over volume. This value will be measured by clinical outcomes and the patient experience within the healthcare setting. This class is designed to improve your ability to deliver optimal outcomes for patients with neck pain while simultaneously maximizing the consumer experience. This 2 day course will focus on current best evidence in the treatment of neck pain with a special emphasis on manual therapy interventions, key conversations during course of care, and critical business principles. Specifically, we will use a case example to illustrate how high quality physical therapy evaluation and treatment of neck pain coupled together with essential customer service domains including marketing, communication, therapeutic alliance development, and transparency creates a highly valued product.
This course has been designed to cover the topics as they are encountered in real time beginning with initial point of contact to clinic marketing outreach and concluding with discharge and follow up correspondence. Improving the business side and better understanding the conversation that occurs during the physical therapy examination along with the treatment skills will result in higher perceived value allowing clinicians to demand greater payment in today’s competitive healthcare market.
