Craig Johnson, PT, MBA is currently a member of the BOD of the American Physical Therapy Association and has served in many leadership roles in APTA and the Private Practice section. He has over 40 years in clinical care, practice ownership, and management in independent therapy practices. He has previously served as COO of Therapy Partners (TPI). TPI provides support services to twenty-eight member practices with fifty-five locations in their network in Minnesota and Wisconsin. Therapy Partners is a unique Member Services Organization (MSO) in the physical therapy industry, which contracts with third party payers. TPI was one of the first organizations to establish a value-based payment contract and delivery model in 2009 with a local state-based payer. Craig has led other provider groups in payer pilots in many regions of the country using patient outcomes and care management to demonstrate the value therapy services. As part of such pilots, he has analyzed claims data of payers, including work comp, parsing the data into discrete episodes measuring upstream, downstream, and direct therapy costs, and identifying cost drivers, as well as identifying the effective providers. Craig is a frequent speaker at APTA conferences on innovative models of care delivery.
