An evaluation is a process in which the physical therapist makes clinical judgments based on data gathered during an examination. The examination includes taking a comprehensive history, performing a review of systems, and conducting tests and measures. Tests and measures may include but are not limited to tests of range of motion, motor, function, muscle performance, joint integrity, neuromuscular status, and review of orthotic/prosthetic devices. The physical therapist will evaluate the examination findings, establish a physical therapy diagnosis, determine the prognosis, and develop a plan of care that includes the anticipated goals and expected outcomes, interventions to be used, and anticipated discharge plans.
If a patient has been discharged from care for any reason or has not been treated within 30 days of the last treatment, a new evaluation will be performed should the patient return to the clinic.
A re-evaluation is a process in which the physical therapist re-examines the patient to evaluate progress and to modify or redirect intervention and/or revise goals and expected outcomes. Re-examination may be indicated more than once during a plan of care. Tests and measures include but are not limited to those performed in an evaluation. The physical therapist will modify/update the plan of care as is indicated and suppot medical necessity of skilled intervention.
