MOTION PT Group Partners with Confluent Health

Confluent Health is proud to announce its newest partnership with MOTION PT Group (MOTION), a physical therapy, occupational therapy, and speech therapy company with 59 clinic locations across Connecticut, Massachusetts, Maryland, and New York.

“In 2015, MOTION had a vision to provide transformative care to patients of all ages,” said Ed Miersch, CEO of MOTION. “As we grew our company, we searched for clinical and administrative leaders who are passionate about quality patient care and the overall patient experience. We are excited to partner with the like-minded and highly successful team of the Confluent family of companies. Together, we will support our mission to deliver compassionate care and empower more patients to live their fullest lives.”

This partnership will allow MOTION to continue providing patients with what is deemed the MOTION experience, including their hallmark of 1:1 care. The partnership will also allow the company to maintain its existing branding while gaining access to Confluent Health’s established ecosystem of management services as well as education and musculoskeletal health resources. Support services include efficient community outreach, digital innovations, value-based care pathway models, and marketing and finance tools. Resources include best in brand physical therapy partnerships, such as the PTPN network, as well as continuing education programs and staff development opportunities with Evidence in Motion, a nationally recognized residency, fellowship, and certification education provider in physical and occupational therapy programs.

“While MOTION has demonstrated their ability to expand patient access to care since their formation 8 years ago, they’ve done so while also remaining value-driven, always focusing on consistent care that delivers noticeable results,” complimented Confluent Health’s President and CEO Dr. Larry Benz, PT, DPT, FAPTA. “The significance of their commitment to compassionate care has not gone unnoticed by their current patients and will be welcomed by the incoming wave of new patients we anticipate in the coming years.”

Urgency for clinical preparedness comes off the back of results from The PT First Study, announced at the American Physical Therapy Association’s Private Practice 2022 Annual Conference & Exhibition in Aurora, Colorado in November. Findings revealed a growth trajectory in patient demand for physical therapy services that isn’t currently supported in the field. The Survey also found the savings associated with removing barriers to physical therapy and involving the practice in a patient’s recovery, creating a 42% savings in total cost of care.

“With their highly effective clinicians and scalable operational model, MOTION is well-positioned to serve a rapidly growing population of musculoskeletal and chronic pain patients. We look forward to this alliance and its assurance of expanding together while treating an increase in patients that need our expertise,” said Benz.

The partnership brings Confluent Health’s national footprint to 609 private practice clinics in 35 states.
