APTA CO President Discusses PT Compact With Talus Media

Posted: July 13, 2017 

Talus Media is a group of both seasoned and fresh physical therapy professionals committed to bringing their audience members up-to-date unbiased news and stories within the PT world. As a team, we strive to provide our listeners not only the facts, but to offer a platform of transparency where the voices and thoughts of individuals within the profession can be heard. 

Co-founded and led by Eric Robertson, PT, DPT, OCS, FAAOMPT and Rachel Jermann, PT, DPT, Talus Media currently has two running podcasts: Talus Media News (TMNews) and Talus Media Talks (TMTalks). Tune in to TMNews for the latest news affecting the physical therapy profession. Topics covered have thus far included healthcare reform, new research, state legal battles, changes in educational standards, and the opioid crisis. TMTalks, a subsidiary of TMNews, offers listeners who crave longer podcasts full coverage, in-depth interviews with the profession’s preeminent experts and thought leaders featured on TMNews. So far, the team has had the pleasure of hearing from Tara Jo Manal, the 2017 John H.P. Maley Lecturer, on the topic of practice standardization, Lisa Saladin, APTA VP, on the movement system, Keaton Ray, PT Day of Service Communications and Outreach Team Chair, on how to get involved with PT Day of Service, and Jason Bellamy, APTA VP of Communications on the opioid crisis. 

The launch of Talus Media comes at a fitting time. In light of the rapid and innovative changes within the physical therapy profession, it is important that the media landscape of physical therapy be critically transformed as well. At Talus Media, the team understands its call to take it to the next level. At least once a week, the team will be bringing its listeners valuable updates and news from within the physical therapy arena in easily digested episodes. No fluff, just good stories and good news. Subscribe for the facts. Subscribe for the stories. Subscribe for quality news and discussion.

It’s time to connect. Click here to listen to APTA Colorado President, Cameron MacDonald's, PT compact discussion with Talus Media.

The Colorado All Payer Claims Database Is Getting A Makeover

Posted: June 28, 2017

The Colorado Medical Price Compare is pleased to announce that as part of their full transition to the new CO APCD data warehouse vendors July 1, 2017, they are actively working to merge www.comedprice.org and www.comedpriceshowcase.org into one cohesive website at www.civhc.org. Their goal is to create a seamless user experience for anyone searching for information related to CIVHC and/or the CO APCD. 

To facilitate the transition, the current CO APCD website (www.comedprice.org) will no longer be available starting this evening, Tuesday, June 27th. New data visualizations, additional years of data and new measures will be available on www.civhc.org later this year. Click here for a list of planned measures in the upcoming rollouts.

In the interim, the current CO APCD public data and other resources are available for download:

Please do not hesitate to contact Colorado Medical Price Compare at [email protected] if you have any questions or need assistance accessing information during the transition period. Thank you!
