Over the past year or so, the idea of MIPS participation has undergone an enormous transformation in the minds of rehab therapists. When the program was first introduced, we were optimistic about participation, and we heralded its arrival as an opportunity for therapists to prove their worth to CMS.
This year’s Ascend business summit heralded a lot of exciting discussions around innovation and the future of rehab therapy. And because of this, we at WebPT feel it’s important to recognize outstanding clinics that embody the spirit of evolving the profession—no matter what obstacles stand before them.
Each year, WebPT hosts the annual Ascend business summit, and to put a cap on the two-day event, we honor one practice with our Practice of the Year award. The 2019 recipient earned this honor by proving that delivering personalized, innovative care and being a multi-practice organization are not mutually exclusive. With 51 clinic sites (and counting), MedStar Rehabilitation Network, our 2019 Practice of the Year recipient, provides services across Maryland, Washington, DC, and northern Virginia.
