Value-based payment models are quickly becoming the new normal in health care—and they’re going to change the face of rehab therapy in big ways.
If you’ve been in business for a while now, you’ve probably gotten pretty used to the standard healthcare fee-for-service payment model: you provide a service, you bill for said service, and then you get paid for that service.

’Tis the season for reflection. Here at WebPT, we like to spend some time at the end of every year appreciating the highlights—and learning from the lowlights—of the year before.
