The FOTO Outcomes Excellence Award honors a select group of Rehabilitation providers that exceed the national average for Functional (FS) change in FOTO’s database for four consecutive quarterly reporting periods.
To earn the Outcomes Excellence Award a provider must consistently achieve superior scores for patient improvement, treatment efficiency and patient satisfaction.

The providers use the reports to manage their clinics to provide the best patient care.
