ATI Has Earned That Rating Every Year Since Current Measurement Program Debuted in 2019
BOLINGBROOK, Ill., Nov. 6, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- ATI Physical Therapy ("ATI" or the "Company") today announced that it has again earned the "Exceptional" rating by the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services' (CMS) Merit-Based Incentive Payment System (MIPS) for quality patient care in 2022. ATI received the exceptional rating for the fourth consecutive year, every year since the program's inception for physical therapy providers.
"Once again, this rating is recognition of the high-quality, patient-centric care our providers deliver," said ATI Chief Executive Officer Sharon Vitti. "We talk a lot about the special relationships between our patients and our providers, and this rating continues to illustrate how much our patients value the care they receive and the difference that it makes in their lives. We will continue working hard to expand access to PT and help people live healthier lives."
As part of this process, ATI, the nation's largest single-branded outpatient physical therapy provider, leveraged its proprietary electronic medical record and Patient Outcomes RegistryTM with over 3 million patients 18 years of age and older. These foundational components are core to ATI's commitment to tie healthcare payments to quality care improvement and health outcomes while reducing the overall cost of healthcare.
"We couldn't be prouder to again receive this exceptional performer rating," said Charles Thigpen, ATI Vice President of Care Delivery. "Now for four years running, this recognition is a credit to the outstanding care our clinicians deliver every day. We will continue working hard to promote the value of physical therapy and its vital role in the musculoskeletal health ecosystem."
The MIPS recognition is used to determine if the provider is eligible for a bonus to CMS reimbursement rates that providers receive for their services, which in turn impacts the location and scope of services available to patients. This recognition is important to partially offset the impact of continuing rate reduction, as also determined by CMS for physical therapy services.
