Over the years the word has spread that ART® is an extremely effective soft tissue management system and many individuals, groups, and business entities have come to rely on ART® care. In the past, there have been several instances where corporations, insurance companies and professional sporting teams have contacted ART® for lists of providers. Historically and when such situations arose, we referred them to the most accomplished provider in the area. We realized that we could help more individuals and ART® providers by handling these situations differently, so we formed the ART® Elite Provider Network (EPN) and ART® Corporate Solutions, Inc. The EPN is a clinically integrated network of the most experienced ART® providers in each state and province and was formed so that ART® can guarantee the highest quality of soft tissue care to private industries, insurance companies, and sporting organizations.
Never before has a provider network been formed with such a focus on the quality of care. Traditionally, physician's groups negotiate contracts by cutting their fees. We feel that ART® already saves companies a tremendous amount of money, so we do not reduce our rates to acquire business – rather, we focus on generating savings through outcomes. We are consistently negotiating contracts with many large corporations and placing providers in these companies to treat employees for a fixed number of hours a week.
ART® has also instituted live web broadcasts as a tool to assist the EPN members with difficult cases. EPN members e-mail ART® about their challenging cases, and during the broadcast Dr. Leahy goes into great depth explaining how he would handle the case. This is a wonderful way to resolve our cases faster and learn from each other's experiences.
The EPN has a dedicated website, www.ARTcorpsolutions.com. This site promotes the ART® Corporate Solutions program and has an easy to use web-based note taking system and outcomes collection program. This allows both EPN members (with a corporate contract) and ART® to track and report outcomes for corporations. Providers can perform all session notes with this password protected system. Downloadable stretching forms are also available to EPN members via this site.
In order to become an EPN member you must be certified in ART® upper extremity, spine and lower extremity areas, and be in good standing with ART®. You must have 12 months of clinical experience (post-graduation and from your first ART® seminar) prior to applying. The provider must pass a full body proficiency test with Dr. Leahy or an approved EPN tester and must complete a written exam (a study guide will be provided).
The cost to join the EPN is a one-time $250 entry fee. We also require both a hands-on course each calendar year and attendance at our annual EPN meeting every other year to ensure an advancing skill set and awareness of ART®’s strategies and plans. An eligible provider must complete the application and all EPN tests in order to be part of the EPN and have access to all the above mentioned tools and resources including: web broadcast with access to the entire library (non-EPN members only can view the last 6 shows), priority on case reviews by Dr. Leahy for the web-broadcast, professional presentations performed by ART® business representatives, corporate negotiations, contracting, and continued support to providers and corporations.
