The California Physical Therapy Association (CPTA) 2010 annual conference was held in Oakland, California this year and was very well attended with 909 participants, which was over a 100 more than the 2009 conference held in Pasadena.

WebPT was well represented in the Exhibit Hall along with over 100 other vendors.  We were one of 12 companies participating in a traffic builder, in which attendees were asked to get “stamps” from these 12 vendors on a card and then turn the card in for a prize drawing.  It was a great way to meet some potential attendees that may not have known that they were really looking for a better way to complete their documentation.

We also were fortunate to meet some of our members face to face.  Being a SaaS (web-based software) company, most of our sales are completed online. We enjoy putting names to faces and hearing all of the fabulous feedback from our members.  They also come with some great ideas that we are able to take back to the development team as potential tweaks to the application making it more functional for our users.

One of the presentation highlights was the program by Tim Flynn in the orthopedic section titled “Expert Musculoskeletal Care – Physical Therapists role in US Healthcare.”  He reinforced a mantra of mine that PTs need to step up their role as the ‘muculoskeletal experts’ in the medical industry.  With several articles of evidence demonstrating the need for physical therapy, specifically using manual therapy techniques, Tim skillfully built his case of the need of PTs in the role for managing high volume musculoskeletal disorders such as Low back pain (LBP), chronic pain, neck pain, and Osteoarthritis (OA) or the hip and knee.

Unlike other state shows that WebPT has attended, CPTA takes care of its vendors offering a significant amount of time for its attendees to browse the Exhibit Hall without the fear of missing lunch or another speaker presentation.  As a business partner, WebPT leverages the strength of the CPTA with California being our 3rd largest represented state in the US.

    Fortune Favors Data: Lessons Learned About Outcomes at Ascend 2015

    Carl Sandberg’s 1914 poem “ Chicago ” spawned one of the city’s most popular nicknames: the City of Big Shoulders. The moniker proudly implies that Chicagoans are work horses—always carrying the weight of the world on their shoulders. They’re the toilers, the builders, and the difference-makers. By that definition, rehab therapy is certainly the Profession of Big Shoulders. Thus, it makes sense that this year’s Ascend 2015 took place in the heart of Chicagoland. And as the …

    The Big Picture in the Big Easy: Top 3 Takeaways from CSM 2018

    They say there’s no such thing as magic. Well, “they” must not have been to New Orleans. As you walk down the narrow cobbled streets of the French Quarter, flanked on either side by brick facades and three-story porches, you’ll likely hear a street musician’s melody weaving through a crowd of curious travelers, against the steady clip-clop of a horse and buggy. “N’awlins” often feels like the city that time forgot. It’s a beautiful tableau of history, …

    Data—Do It; Do It Now: Key Takeaways from Ascend 2015

    Ben Franklin once said that “diligence is the mother of good luck.” That may have worked in the days of our founding fathers, but today, in our vastly more complicated world, diligence doesn’t quite cut it. One thing that can certainly up the good-fortune factor, though? Data. In yesterday’s Ascend 2015 recap post , I explained why data is inherently linked to the future of rehab therapy. Specifically, I detailed how many speakers at this past weekend’s …
