PT Progress - A Physical Therapy Benefits Management Program
Clinically Based, Outcomes Driven
Workers’ compensation payers have seen excessive physical therapy utilization and unnecessary treatment drive up claims costs.
PT Progress, TechHealth’s physical therapy program, controls over-utilization by integrating the Official Disability Guidelines (ODG) and benchmarking the healthcare provider’s activities.
TechHealth helps clients improve the overall outcome of the physical therapy claim. With PT Progress, we monitor patient compliance and communicate activity to the claims professional. Our in-house clinicians evaluate treatment requests in excess of ODG and conduct peer-to-peer reviews and consults. We provide therapy continuation recommendations and can coordinate with our clients’ utilization review for formal claim denial.
- Increased Overall Savings
- Peer-to-Peer Consultations
- Outcomes-focused Reporting
Physical Therapy Solution
Physical Therapy Network
TechHealth is the largest independently owned physical therapy network. We ensure the highest quality of care by rigorously credentialing providers, scorecarding their performance, and measuring patient satisfaction. PT Progress allows us to benchmark treatments against ODG and steer referrals to providers with the best health care outcomes. Our direct provider relationships allow for better oversight, preferred scheduling and the elimination of broad-based PPO access charges.
- Directly Contracted Network
- Return-To-Work Treatment Focus
- Eliminate Network Access Fees
Prospective Referral Management
Our customer-based service teams actively manage the physical therapy referral from inception to completion. TechHealth schedules the injured worker’s appointments, monitors the patient’s compliance with treatment, and communicates activities to all parties on the claim. When prescribed services exceed ODG recommendations, TechHealth’s in-house clinicians take action. We undertake a thorough peer-to-peer review of the claim and its treatment activity in order to provide recommendations to the client.
Retrospective Billing Management
With PT Progress, our customers can always experience savings. TechHealth’s direct contracts allow for re-pricing and eliminate the controversial “Silent PPO.” We retrospectively re-price bills from our exclusive physical therapy network to deliver cost savings, then we convert the referral to prospective status. From that point on, our clients experience the savings generated by actively managing the referral to control over-utilization.
Supply us the patient information and we coordinate the rest. It's just that simple.
