New White Paper: Optimize the Value of Your Outpatient Investment: a Physical Therapy Strategy to Grow and Connect Your Network

Health systems are making an enormous investment in community-based outpatient care. A market map of any progressive system unveils the strategic placement of primary and specialty clinics, surgery centers, urgent care centers, and more — all designed to defend and extend their market and provide convenient access to care. In our latest white paper, we discuss how many health systems are leveraging a physical therapy strategy to connect the care continuum while continuing to penetrate new markets and build brand loyalty.


A connected PT Strategy


Primary Care

Patients can now access physical therapy without physician referral


60-75% of ortho/spine patients are not a candidate for surgery

Physical Medicine

Payors are encouraging early physical therapy to treat pain and reduce opioid use

Surgery Centers

The next step for patients is likely physical therapy

Urgent Care/EDs

Top non-illness visits are for ankle, foot, toe sprains and strains

Imaging Centers

Shared specialization in bones, joints, tendons, and muscles


PT improves ability to move, reduce pain, and lower blood glucose levels


With little equipment needs, therapists can be just as effective in a virtual environment

PRN’s physical therapy centers will have the capacity to support over 300,000 PT visits and more than 40,000 patients a year – from young children to adults
