Elbow Bump
A couple of resources to share with all available on the HPA COVID 19 web-page (open access to all: )
1.  APTA's Interactive Audio and Video Telecommunications System Matrix - this is a telehealth platform spread sheet which lists several quality platforms along with descriptions and costs so that the reader can compare.  This is not an endorsement of any one platform and was a collaborative effort between APTA Regulatory Affairs, FIRST Council and HPA Tech SIG.  The link is currently at the bottom of our COVID 19 page.

2. Free Access to On Demand Patient Record Retrieval Service Across the Continuum - This is a big share for anyone who may need to access EHR record of a pt. (Post acute care and private practice may be very interested) - more complete information with links on COVID -19 page about a quarter way down on the page
Kno2 is making their portal available for purposes of On Demand Patient Record Retrieval Service available at NO CHARGE (during state of emergency) to all of post-acute including LTACs, IRFs, Skilled Nursing, Homecare/Home Health, Therapy Providers, etc. This provides an opportunity to access the most recent patient records of other providers in the community as we treat patients during this public health crisis.


Dear Academy Members:

I hope you and those close to you are healthy and safe.  It is truly an unprecedented time for all of us. No matter what part of the country and what type of practice you are in there are profound challenges.  

I wanted to share with you that APTA has been quite active in their response to this global pandemic. Specifically, the guidelines for physical therapy practice are quite relevant for all areas including sports physical therapy.

Now, more than ever it is time for all of us to pull together as a team to be a part of the solution for our
patients, our practices, our profession, our country, and our world.

Whenever I communicate with our members, I feel the passion they have for sports physical therapy. The team approach that is so inherent to us in sports is oh so relevant and important during times such as these. The team approach is how we will work through the toughest of times.

Thank you for all you are doing to make the world a better place!
