NCART to Conduct CRT Provider Survey

NCART will be conducting a complex rehab technology (CRT) industry survey in September, with the help of the Rochester Institute of Technology in New York.

In an Aug. 24 bulletin, NCART Executive Director Don Clayback said the association needs updated information as it works on behalf of CRT stakeholders.

“The last time we did a national CRT industry survey was 2008,” Clayback said in the announcement. “While this information has been very helpful over the years in our discussions with legislators and policy-makers, we need more current data.”

Raj S. Murthy, Ph.D., an associate professor of marketing at the Saunders College of Business at the Rochester Institute of Technology, will be overseeing the survey process. Clayback said the process would be confidential, and that no individual company information would be revealed in the eventual report.

“All information will be submitted directly to the college and held in strict confidence,” Clayback said. “The survey report will only disclose group data, so no individual company information will become public.”

The survey will ask for “limited financial and operational data from CRT providers for calendar/fiscal year 2016.” The survey will run in September, and providers who participate will receive a free copy of the final report.

Participating providers are being asked to first register with Saunders College. Click HERE to view a brief video about the survey and to register.
