Rothstein Roundtable Podcast—“Medicare Mandate for Claims-Based Functional Data Collection: An Opportunity to Advance Care, or a Regulatory Burden?”

Alan Jette, Mary Stilphen, Dan Ciolek, Linda Resnik

Clinicians and administrators have begun implementing Medicare's mandated claims-based functional data collection. At the 2013 Rothstein Roundtable at APTA Conference in Salt Lake City, Utah, on June 28, 2013, a panel of administrators and health services and health policy researchers debated the potential benefits—and the potential pitfalls—of this regulation. The panel discussed how functional status data collection might ultimately impact the provision of and reimbursement for outpatient therapy services. The Rothstein Roundtable is named in honor of Physical Therapy (PTJ) Editor-in-Chief Emeritus Jules Rothstein, PT, PhD, FAPTA, who believed passionately in the importance of scholarly dialogue and debate.
