Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy, APTA, Inc. Vendor Partnership Program
The Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy’s Vendor Partnership Program is established to increase dissemination and implementation of the Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy / JOSPT’s ICF-based Clinical Practice Guidelines (CPGs). The focus of this program is to:
- Provide tools to empower academic educators, clinical educators, students, interns, residents, fellows, clinical practitioners, patients, athletes, wellness practitioners, payers, and policy makers with the knowledge, standards, and recommendations of the clinical practice guidelines
- Generate revenue to sustain the clinical practice guideline development, revision, and publication processes
The Academy of Orthopaedic Physical Therapy welcomes vendors working towards establishing a product, vendors with a conceptual idea, and established vendors. Those vendors working towards establishing a product or who have an idea they would like to bring to market can reach out to Terri DeFlorian, at firstname.lastname@example.org. Vendors will then be directed or advised as appropriate by the CPG Coordinator. Those vendors working towards establishing a product will be directed to the Treat Center, a nonprofit organization, assisting rehabilitation innovators in the steps to product commercialization. Those vendors with an established product are directed to the process below.
