About the Instructor
Jim Porterfield, PT, MA, AT(ret)
After 38 years of outpatient clinical practice, Jim is semi-retired. He opened his Private Practice in 1989. At one time, he owned four clinics. In conjunction with his friend and colleague Carl DeRosa PT, PhD, he co-authored 4 textbooks on clinical application of functional anatomy and physiology. Accompanying that writing, they created a cadaver dissection series. This work served as a foundation for national and international teaching and training. Jim and his staff have over 25 years of experience with large projects, like placing a rehab center on site of the UPS in Cleveland in 1995, and the state funded functional outcome study entitled the “Ohio Project” (2003). At their peak, they had 22 out-patient clinics, similarly collecting data with standardized and validated for 5 different body parts. They designed and wrote the software and reporting that created the foundation to which all data was directed. Jim owns Venture Practice Services, a rehab specific medical billing company, since 1996, and co-owner of Acadaware, a software design company with 4 modules: Clinical Education, Curriculum Management, Clinical Research, and a Career Center. Throughout his career as a clinician, he has surrounded himself with very talented and well-read providers that understand the value of studying the combination of services that yields the most successful intervention for all diagnoses.
