The Center uses a nationally recognized, Medicare approved program called FOTO, Focus on Therapeutic Outcomes to measure outcomes (results), monitor treatment plans and control costs to patients, employers and insurance providers.
FOTO establishes patient functional baselines, assists with treatment plans and measures patient satisfaction. It tracks many stats including: average number of visits per episode, per diagnosis, functional recovery expectation and cost.
The Center voluntarily (not mandatory in Michigan) uses FOTO and publishes the statistics, providing 100% transparency to all claim parties.
Because FOTO measures patient outcomes (results) we can say with confidence that "you get better, faster," at The Center.
