PTPN announces partnership with leading therapy management services company

PTPN has announced a partnership with Confluent Health, the nation’s premier network of private practice therapists.

“Since its inception 35 years ago, PTPN has set the standards in outpatient physical, occupational and speech-language therapy services, including payor contracting, quality assurance and outcomes measurement programs that have helped our member therapists succeed,” says PTPN President and founder Michael Weinper, PT, DPT, MPH. “Forging a partnership with Confluent Health takes our membership capabilities to the next level, by giving our network access to education opportunities and management tools to help them grow and continue to provide best-in-class patient care.”

This partnership will allow PTPN’s hundreds of member clinics to access to Confluent Health’s resources, including payor innovation projects, talent acquisition, marketing, finance, and expanded group purchasing. Confluent Health will share best practices for payer/network contracting and credentialing to elevate all practices under the Confluent Health and PTPN umbrella. In addition, PTPN members will have greater access to Evidence In Motion’s nationally recognized physical therapy education programs, including residency, fellowship, certification programs and specialized training in pain management and dry needling.

“Joining forces with PTPN was a natural fit,” says Confluent Health CEO Larry Benz, PT, DPT, OCS, MBA, MAPP. “Our mission aligns with PTPN, providing privately owned therapy clinics with expert resources, scale, and growth opportunities to make them thrive in the market. We are excited to support the PTPN network and work with Michael and his team.”
