FOTO Partnership for Data Exchange

February 7, 2008 · Posted in Compliance, Outcomes 

Chart Links has partnered with Focus On Therapeutic Outcomes, Inc. (FOTO), the nation’s largest independent outpatient database and reporting service for physical rehabiliation providers, to develop a data exchange between FOTO’s Patient Inquiry(r) software and Chart Links Rehabilitation Software.

“Chart Links is expanding its outcomes and analytics offerings to aid patient care and ensure compliance requirements,” says Ron Miller, MD, Chart Links Presdient and Chief Medical Officer.  “Our partnership with FOTO offers providers a convenient way to get at functional and demographic data that will support decisions to maximize their clinical efficiency.”

“Our first goal is to eliminate any duplicate data entry,” says FOTO CEO Ben E. Johnston, Jr., PT.  “Once that is complete, we will investigate other ways that we might benefit our mutual clients.”

FOTO has been gathering functional outcomes data since 1992 and is currently installed in approximately 1,800 clinics in the United Satates and Israel.  FOTO’s 24 month comparative data set includes approximately 180,000 completed patient episodes from orthopedic, neurologic, industrial, and pain management programs.  FOTO’s Patient Inquiry Software was recommended by CMS in Transmittal 63.
