    Playing for Keeps: The How and Why of Patient Loyalty

    I have a confession to make: I have a not-so-secret “thing” for epic tales. King Arthur? Love it. Lord of the Rings? Yes, please. Game of Thrones? You betcha. If it has swords, wizards, and a medieval setting, then you can count me in. While I find it difficult to pinpoint a single reason for my fondness of these stories, one thing that draws me in is the loyalty and devotion their heroes have to a chosen …

Well, what if I told you that in less than two years’ time, those numbers—and the CPT codes they represent—actually could become nothing more than a memory? If that sounds like crazy talk to you, then allow me to introduce you to the APTA’s proposed Physical Therapy …

    Developing Sensory-Motor Skills with Socks and Plastic Bags

    Today’s blog post comes from the Recycling Occupational Therapist Barbara Smith. I am thrilled that WebPT has asked me to share some therapeutic interventions created from recycled materials as we celebrate Earth Day. I began using household items such as detergent bottles, cardboard boxes, and old socks to create activities that engage severely multiply-handicapped children and adults more than 20 years ago. Because my homemade activities were individualized, they worked better than commercially available products and the …

    More Than a Number: Personalizing Patient Care in Your Growing Therapy Practice

    Many small private practices achieve success because of the stellar one-on-one care they provide—and amazing patient experiences they create. After all, what better way to foster patient loyalty and garner word-of-mouth referrals to ultimately boost revenue as well as your reputation? Unfortunately, though, that level of attention can be difficult to maintain as your practice grows—and patients can end up falling through the proverbial cracks as providers’ calendars become increasingly jam-packed. That is, of course, unless you …

As value-based reimbursement models gain momentum in our country and our patients become more savvy customers, the value of your occupational therapy services may come into question. Proving your value may sound extremely daunting, but it doesn't have to be. You don’t need to speak to the value of the whole occupational therapy profession. You just need …
