03/01/18: Using Health System Data to Monitor Total Knee Arthroplasty (TKA) Rehabilitation

1:00 p.m. - 2:00 p.m. Eastern

Members $99 | Non-members $149

Presented by: Andrew Kittelson, PT, DPT, PhD 

Clinical data registries are gaining popularity in physical therapy as means of demonstrating the value of the profession and describing patient populations and practice patterns. However, an alternative and promising use for routinely collected outcomes data is to inform real-time clinical decisions via novel informatics.

Andrew Kittelson, PT, DPT, PhD, will present an example of such work in TKA rehabilitation, highlighting the data collection procedures and specific outcomes required for this work (and the potential differences between these data and data often collected in outcomes registries).

Educational Objectives:

  • Discuss which outcomes offer the most value in terms of monitoring progress in rehabilitation.
  • Review the benefits and pitfalls of clinically collected data.
  • Provide an example of how clinically collected data can be used to provide a framework for monitoring rehabilitation and informing individual-level decisions.
