Thought Leadership papers released by rehabilitation therapists network PTPN examines the role and benefits of physical therapy in group health and workers’ compensation cases.

The papers, titled “Leveraging the Power of PT for Workers’ Comp” and “Leveraging the Power of Ancillary Services,” note that workers’ comp carriers and health plans may be missing an important ally in their efforts to meet the goals of healthcare delivery: providers of physical therapy services, according to a media release from Calabasas, Calif-based PTPN.

“As they adapt to new value-based care models, health plans and workers’ comp carriers require new solutions to meet their needs and those of injured workers,” says Michael Weinper, PT, DPT, MPH, president of PTPN, in the release.

“These papers show how a different approach to the changes in the nation’s workers’ comp and group healthcare can not only improve the delivery of health services, but also deliver better outcomes for a wide range of patients at a lower cost,” he adds.
