Fuhgid about it!  The New York and New Jersey Physical Therapy Associations collaborated for a Combined State conference in Atlantic City, New Jersey October 15 and 16.  Although conveniently hosted at the Sheraton Convention Center, consensus among the attendees and other vendors was that attendance was lower than normal due to location.  Those attending were therapists from many discipline areas, but mainly hospital based facilities. Despite lower attendance, the show must go on and it did.

New York and New Jersey are states where WebPT has some of our largest member base. Due to the "corporate PT" restriction in New York, private practice clinics flourish. More power to the Empire State for sticking up for small business owners and entrepreneurial PTs who want to prove that we can function autonomously!  Competition is fierce, but that breeds attention to treatment outcomes and customer service.

The conference planning committee was creative in catering to the vendors at this show.  A monopoly board with all of the vendors’ names for the real estate was given to each attendee. A $500 prize was given out in a drawing from the names of all the attendees that were able to fill their board by visiting each booth and receiving a stamp. Unfortunately for sales team, there were no sightings of the ‘Situation’ on this piece of NJ real estate.

    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 …

    New Orleans APTA Combined Sections Meeting 2011

    Brrrr! As a cold front descended on New Orleans, Louisiana (or Nawlins as the locals say), so did just over 9100 PTs, PTAs, and PT students for 2011 CSM. Per the APTA , this was one of the best attended Combined Sections Meetings to date. The city has a lot of draw with Bourbon Street, riverboat gambling, hurricanes (the drink of course), ghost and swamp tours, and Cajun food. There was also the Rock-n-Roll Marathon & ½ …

    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 …
