What is Ascend?

Faced with evolving payment models and intensifying regulations, the rehab therapy industry is at a critical juncture. And while we can predict which way the winds of change will blow, speculation is not enough. No longer can therapists simply batten the hatches and weather the impending storm of healthcare reform initiatives. Instead, we must take action to make these changes work for—rather than against—us. This requires a proactive, opportunistic mindset. It requires strategies for scale. It requires therapists to get down to business—literally. That’s what Ascend is about: business. In this two-day educational event, PTs and OTs will learn practical business tactics they can use to capitalize on the evolving healthcare system.

* CEUs pending approval from the New York, California, Texas, and Illinois APTA chapters as well as the AOTA.
