               PATIENT OUTCOMES WITH THE USE OF FOTO    

 

Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes, also known as FOTO, is a web-based assessment system providing patient evaluation tools and aggregate data management services.  FOTO is dedicated to standardizing industry communication about effectiveness of care.  Their database is the largest and most valid external directory for rehabilitation that measures functional outcomes for orthopedic, neurological, work hardening/work conditioning, pain management, cardiovascular, pulmonary and pelvic floor dysfunction patients.

A NOTE FROM BERNARD POVANDA, PT, COMT:

“Since the inception into our clinics, FOTO has put my practice a step ahead of other physical therapy clinics.  We are now able to get a true picture of the various factors that could lead to poorer outcomes, such as fear of movement, high somatization and depression.  This program allows our staff to screen for high-risk adjustments among our patient population.  Our therapists can see how they are performing on a national average and become more efficient and effective with their outcomes.  Bottom line is that I feel that in today’s health care climate, a more effective treatment and a positive outcome is going to be instrumental in maintaining a successful practice.”
