The Australian Physiotherapy Association (APA), the 26,000+ member strong industry body for some of the world’s most qualified physiotherapy practitioners, has announced the launch of a national initiative to assess the impact of physiotherapy intervention in the private practice setting.
The study, which is likely to involve thousands of consenting Australian patients includes the collection, aggregation and analysis of de-identified patient reported outcome data collected systematically from the profession nationwide.
This uniquely wide-ranging study of Australia’s population, known for its active lifestyle and devotion to sports, could help to shed light on the impact of physiotherapy treatment by utilising existing technology such as Physitrack.
Physitrack, an Apple Mobility partner and the leading provider of patient engagement solutions in the Australian physiotherapy market, is pleased that its functionality for outcome data collection will be used as part of the study.
